What to expect from a Managed SAP Cloud IaaS

Cloud adoption studies indicate that 85% of CXOs are keen to establish and pursue a cloud strategy. They also indicate that 80% of organizations will migrate applications from their own data center to public cloud IaaS. This would be to achieve meaningful cost savings by 2020. Customers investment in data centers is also fostering phased approaches to shift workloads to the cloud. New installations are pursuing the cloud first policy unless they are forced to do so otherwise. This is due to regulatory requirements on data classifications or residence. CIOs are constantly evaluating the best approach for their organizations. This blog post de-mystifies the difference between IaaS services offered by most cloud players vs Managed SAP Cloud by KCloud.

SAP IaaS

In IaaS (AWS or Azure), you get virtual or HANA machines which you can use to build an SAP landscape. You still need a battery of resources to build, deploy and run your SAP cloud applications. The project team must have a good combination of SAP Platform / HANA experts with experience in SAP operating systems/database upgrades, infra experts with cloud architecting and deployment experience using SAP optimized virtual machines and HANA, and Networking and security on cloud specialists with exposure to SAP application related requirements.

Managed SAP IaaS

In addition to the IaaS services provided by generic cloud providers, KCloud has built-in necessary components for an end to end service based on the enterprise SAP customer needs and our decade-long experience running SAP applications. KCloud managed SAP HANA IaaS provides managed cloud infrastructure to host SAP ECC or HANA applications to enable the customers with innovative ways to build, operate and consume technology.

 

As previously discussed in UNDERSTANDING THE SAP CLOUD ROI, two of the key operational cost drivers are IT and SAP resources. 24×7 monitoring, help desk services, and a back-up from 700+ SAP experts are practically difficult for enterprises to achieve unless there is such need. In comparison, the ‘Managed SAP cloud’ delivers true value to customers with a wide variety of benefits.
