The essence of Cloud computing has been to separate the application from infrastructure. SAP now offers a number of certified options beyond IaaS with the SAP Cloud platform.
The SAP Cloud platform uses Cloud Foundry automated deployments to provide Operating System management and even Database as a Service. The challenge with virtual machines is they are not as flexible as options in containers or serverless architectures. However SAP HANA can be deployed using single or multitenant database containers. Partnering with SUSE or RedHat for SAP Container deployments allows you to use Docker or Kubernetes. All of this enables organisations to adapt and adopt a faster pace of change at lower risk and cost.
To determine which service best fits your requirements, it’s important to understand how IaaS differs from other “as a service” offerings.
IaaS provides a proven approach for organisations to rapidly provision SAP configurations to meet their existing needs whilst enabling the flexibility to reconfigure any and all resources as required. For many customers, this is a different operational model and mindset.
