SAP S/4HANA Cloud Deployment Options: Public, Private, and Hybrid

Since the Cloud is an ERP with the possibility to be hosted and managed by an external provider, you have to choose a hosting option for your ERP system . But what deployment options are there? With cloud-based ERPs you have three hosting options at your disposal: a private, a public or a hybrid cloud landscape.

SAP S/4HANA in a Public Cloud

Hosting SAP S/4HANA in a public cloud means that you can rely on a cloud provider, who offers his services to multiple customers and takes care of maintenance as well as security issues. Since the public cloud is not your sole property, it is the most cost-efficient way to get a cloud ERP.

SAP S/4HANA in a Private Cloud

When opting for a private cloud, you generally decide to manage your cloud environment on your own. But even with a private cloud you have the option of managed hosting by an external service provider. All in all, you stay in full control when it comes to SAP S/4HANA in a private cloud.

SAP S/4HANA in a Hybrid Cloud

Hosting your SAP ERP in a hybrid cloud can be regarded as a soft approach to get a cloud ERP. Here, you administer your cloud in your own on-site data center. Thus, you can flexibly decide how business processes should be managed: internally or externally.
