SAP Hyperscalers


SAP Hyperscalers: An Overview and Key Considerations

What Are SAP Hyperscalers?

Hyperscale computing is the ability of an architecture to scale as needed to support increased demand. But what most people think about when discussing the term “hyperscaler” is the scale of the computing environment. Typically distributed, hyperscale environments can include thousands or tens of thousands of servers. SAP Hyperscalers refers to the public cloud providers that SAP uses as hosting partners for their cloud solutions and services. The primary vendors that fit the criteria of SAP Hyperscalers are:

These three organizations are the market leaders in infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) computing today, and all are close partners of SAP. While not as significant in the global cloud services market, Alibaba Cloud is very prominent in the APJ region and also partners closely with SAP.

Key Considerations for SAPinsiders

  • SAP Hyperscalers offer a scalable environment that can help facilitate change. When SAPinsider spoke to MSC Industrial about why they decided to move forward with a hyperscaler, they explained that it allowed them to consolidate their IT footprint and refocus their IT resources on strategic priorities. Not only did they receive support from SAP for their deployments, they also received just as much support from their hyperscaler partner. This meant that they were able to consider how they could do more with their existing technology, a change that they did not previously believe was possible.
  • Cloud computing is likely to be a hybrid future for SAP customers. SAPinsider research in 2021 revealed that, of those organizations running SAP workloads in the public cloud, most were using more than one public cloud provider. And when RISE with SAP was launched, one of the factors that SAP emphasized was the choice available for organizations in their hosting partner. Markus Noga, SUSE’s Vice President, Solutions Technology, agrees that organizations are becoming more discerning about where they deploy solutions. Hybrid cloud environments, whether they involve some on-premise and some cloud-based deployments, or simply leverage multiple SAP Hyperscalers, are the way forward when working with hyperscale computing.
  • RISE with SAP provides customers with the choice of their hosting partner, though the contract is managed by SAP. When organizations purchase SAP’s new RISE with SAP offering, they can choose their hosting partner. Many are choosing to go with the SAP Hyperscalers mentioned above, even though they will not be able to leverage their existing contracts with these cloud providers. This is because RISE with SAP is a single contract with SAP, and SAP manages all the other contracts involved. This article provides insight on RISE with SAP contracts, and four other things that you should know about RISE with SAP.
