We performed a comparison between Microsoft Azure and SAP S4HANA on AWS 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.
"It is a reliable solution that is easy to set up."
"It is easy to install."
"Azure's Data Lake services are decent. I like AKS, and API Management is relatively straightforward to use. The security and SIEM options Azure offers are good. All the infrastructure services are easy to use and set up."
"The management part of it is good. Its UI is simple to use. The cost management and billing part is also good. These are the top things that I like in Azure."
"The solution has given us more agility, scalability and opportunity to optimize the cost."
"Microsoft Azure is easy to use."
"There are a lot of things that we like about it. It is very easy to provision and configure. It is flexible and scalable."
"Azure is stable. I don't have any problems with it."
"It is indeed a stable solution, but it depends on how you architecture the component in AWS. If the component has the right architecture and is properly provisioned and placed, then it will be a stable platform."
"SAP has an auto-scaling feature, but Azure doesn't."
"SAP S4HANA's most valuable features include backup, security, storage, infrastructure, and enabling AI."
"SAP S4HANA on AWS has high performance. All the data is in one place and it's real-time. When you make an entry you don't have to wait a couple of minutes, hours, or overnight as something the batch process takes time. It is instantaneous and is available to everybody."
"The solution adds great value to any organization."
"The system has the capacity to manage all these departments in a single box and they're all integrated."
"The most valuable feature of SAP S4HANA on AWS is that when developed on a new structured system it can be configured."
"They have their own instances where you can host your database."
"The solution is too expensive."
"Its subscription price could be cheaper."
"The biggest area needing improvement involves the licensing cost."
"At this point, the latency is too high to use Azure in our production environment."
"I would like to see this solution support integration."
"I think Azure Active Directory and also the backup solutions provided in Azure need to be improved by Microsoft. The backup solution is not a very enterprise solution, and it is very simple. I think in comparison with other backup solutions like Nakivo and Veeam Backup, it can be improved to have a lot of options."
"The solution lacks fluidity and is not intuitive."
"An issue I encountered was around the integration of Identity. I lost some important information and I would like to see improvements with this."
"SAP S4HANA on AWS could improve by having the entire solution available as a web solution. They only have Fiori right now, and it's a solution for certain modules, but not for all the modules that SAP currently has. We would like to see the GUI removed, it is not very good. We want it to be web-based."
"The documentation isn't clear enough."
"SAP S4HANA could be improved by adding a click-to-deploy model."
"I would like to see a lower price for the solution."
"There are a few complexities when it comes to licensing that could be simplified."
"The drawback of this tool versus an on-site tool is that you've got to upgrade the tool. The software is upgraded as it gets upgraded and you've got to be ready to change whatever processes and do whatever training you need to do."
"The product can be very complex."
"If you go to AWS's site they offer training programs that are very good. SAP does not do the same, if SAP could provide some training that would be great."
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.
