What is a Private Cloud?

Private cloud encompasses infrastructure, including hardware, network, software, and mass storage with cloud architecture similar to on-premise. In addition, private cloud also allows greater benefits and more customisation than in the case of public cloud. Therefore, private cloud allows your business to host its SAP solutions and data on cloud services that are not shared with other companies. Thus, private cloud is intended only for a given company.

Benefits of SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud Edition:

Total control and increased efficiency: 

Private clouds are typically hosted on-premise or in a private third-party data centre. As a result, companies gain greater control over their data and infrastructure, making it easier to make quick updates when needed. An in-house IT team is usually responsible for implementing applications. SAP S/4HANA private cloud also allows you to use advanced analytics to predict and prevent bottlenecks and downtime.


An important advantage of private cloud is that it can be adapted to the business needs. Private cloud offers higher levels of adaptability to the specific technical and business requirements of the organisation. Most importantly, in a private cloud companies can choose their infrastructure with specific mass storage and networking features. 

Full modifiability: 

Businesses can customise almost anything and modify SAP source code with full backend visibility and control. An important advantage of private cloud is the high level of security compared to public cloud. Data is protected and managed on private cloud servers that are hosted in a data centre. 

Compliance with regulations:

Customer information is highly sensitive data for any company. Any breach can have a negative impact on your business. Private clouds give enterprises a lot of control over their data and help keep it private. 

Use of resources:

Private cloud guarantees the use of every server and technology. Virtualisation offers private cloud users better resource utilisation by dynamically distributing the load across appropriate servers. 

Hosting SAP S/4HANA cloud in a private cloud provides business response speed, reduction in TCO and reduction in personnel and infrastructure costs. 


Why SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud?

By simplifying the IT landscape, private cloud allows companies to focus on growing their core business rather than focusing on IT systems. In addition, it offers a single point of contact and a single SLA that covers responsibility for ERP license, infrastructure, and operations. Thus, the implementation can be carried out using the brownfield or greenfield approach. 

Overall, SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud allows companies to innovate at their own pace.
