We performed a comparison between Microsoft Azure and SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Infrastructure as a Service Clouds (IaaS) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Reliable with ease of provisional services."
"The solution has given us more agility, scalability and opportunity to optimize the cost."
"The most valuable aspect of this solution is its ease of use."
"The solution is easy to use and flexible."
"Microsoft Azure has thousands of services and products."
"Installation is easy as it's cloud-based. Performance is good. It's stable and scalable."
"The advantage of Microsoft Azure is its simplicity. It's easy to launch a project. However, the problem with this kind of solution is the reliability for the customers. You have to be sure to stay with Microsoft."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is it has everything together in one place. It is one large tool with lots of small tools that are updated often."
"We have a wide range of use cases for SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud. These include production planning, materials management, sales management, treasury, finance, appliance maintenance, real estate, and warehouse management."
"The scalability is good because we have some cloud resources to support the ERP."
"The solution's initial setup process is straightforward."
"It is a stable and scalable product."
"I am impressed with how the solution integrates with the ME system and ALE IDocs."
"This solution is as good as any other S/4HANA SAP solution. The continuous support we get is very valuable."
"The BTP module is important for digital transformations."
"The processes and the way we take advantage and use assistance are good."
"The response time and stability of Microsoft Azure need to be improved."
"The documentation can be outdated and is not as clear in Microsoft Azure as it is in AWS or Google."
"More expensive than other solutions without justification."
"Potential improvements to the price calculator tool"
"Microsoft Azure could improve by having more virtual machine operating systems available."
"Microsoft Azure could improve by being more secure."
"Maybe Microsoft could improve its monitoring around the networking."
"It could be more flexible. If you look at all Mircosoft products, they are not up to the mark. For example, Azure Ready doesn't provide the same kind of access a domain administrator has and the kind of flexibility that they have when using Active Directory. Microsoft support could be better. Their service could also be better. For example, specific policies for templates suddenly become unavailable. When I checked, they said that certain things might be withdrawn based on customer feedback. This happened once or twice, and it wasn't available at all for five days, it just went down."
"The SAP products are complicated to deploy anywhere."
"It needs improvement in terms of stability and performance."
"I would rate the stability a four out of ten. It's an area that could use improvement"
"The only thing that could be improved is the cost."
"SAP support isn't on par with products like Microsoft Azure or AWS. It's nowhere close to the competitors."
"Perhaps minor changes to the enterprise structure could be made, but the rest is fine."
"Enterprise Cloud's reporting could be more automated to improve content accountability, especially regarding BI reports."
"The cost could be improved. I think it's higher than the competition."
Windows Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform, where developers can create, deploy, and maintain their apps. This cloud application platform allows developers to concentrate on the actual applications, while it takes care of all the elements behind the apps.
Windows Azure works across multiple frameworks and languages. It is fully scalable, localized in that it is hosted globally in many datacenters, and has widespread capabilities with elements of application development, deployment, and management.
Azure is comprised of several different service modules, including Infrastructure; Web; Mobile; Dev & Test; Big Data; Media;Storage, Backup & Recovery; and Identity & Access Management.

"It is a flexible solution that is straightforward to use," says the principal consultant at a computer software company.
“You can build an environment in minutes. It's very good in terms of being an infrastructure as a service, and I found that really fascinating,” says an information technology consultant at a computer software company.
"I think Azure's level of automation to achieve efficiency or agility is valuable. I also like the change capability cadence, the showback capabilities, and understanding what our costs are," says an enterprise architect at an energy/utilities company.
Marco C., Ing. at Wolters Kluwer, says "The valuable features of Microsoft Azure are that it is cloud-based and has good storage. The storage is completely managed by Azure. We do not need to do any patching of security because it is handled by Azure which is a benefit. The solution is fully compatible with the Microsoft technology stack and is very scalable."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is it has everything together in one place. It is one large tool with lots of small tools that are updated often," says the owner of a media company.
