The Fiori interface is the most valuable feature. It's one of the highlights that they offer. The in-memory of S4 is very fast.

There are two main features that we find very valuable. One is the interface and the new user experience. That's really, really helpful for the end-user. The second is the HANA database itself because it speeds up the process. In other solutions, like Oracle, there is a lot of redundancy that slows things down.

SAP S/4HANA is a system for managing relational databases. The in-memory system, as well as the columnar structure, results in retrieving the data with better performance than RDBMS systems. You can deploy it in AWS or in Azure. Here is a brief comparison: Azure dedicates specific virtual machines and bare metal servers to run SAP HANA. SAP HANA applications run on an SAP application. With Azure, you have an entire SAP application (VM) layer that includes servers, storage, and network configuration. You can deploy resources from 36 Intel with memory of 768GB to 480 Intel processors with 24TB of memory. Finally, you can combine AP and non SAP data. You can apply advanced data services, such as analytics and AI. Aws Azure Supported use cases Production, non-production Production, non-production Supported resources Up to 48TB of memory Up to 12TB Licensing Pay per use BYOL subscription Services Single and multi-node architecture. Load balancing, instance provisioning. Load balancing, clustering, Active Directory, and the HANA database. SAP S/4HANA on AWS provides infrastructure services. AWS has the advantage of making SAP HANA available, cost-effective, and fault-tolerant. With AWS you can configure a single EC2 to host SAP HANA with EBS storage and your chosen operating system. Another option is to use multi-AZ to deploy primary and secondary nodes, using one for production and another for non-production. You have two main options: First, BYOL (Bring your own license). It supports native HANA applications, S/4HANA, Business Suite on HANA, and you can have OLAP memory up to 100 TB. Second, the express edition, which is free to use for in-memory databases, but keep in mind you’ll have to stay under 32 GB. Conclusions Which is best will depend on your use cases. Azure in my opinion offers better performance for big data and AI workloads. AWS provides more reliability and redundancy.

When creating a private cloud, you can choose from several different technologies - some of them are open source (like OpenStack, Open Nebula), others are private (like VMware vCloudSuite, Microsoft Azure).  Do you have experience with any of them and what is your feedback?

I am experienced with OpenStack, AWS, and Azure. We had our private cloud on OpenStack during my Ph.D. studies on Cloud resources management and I use AWS (as a public Cloud) for my last 2 research papers. I also used Azure for couples of projects. But we had to switch because we were experiencing some downtime with Azure that was degrading the performance of the applications. I hope I answered your question!
