On Premises, Managed or Cloud – Comparing different portal deployment options

In the past few years, the SAP Portal portfolio has evolved from a single SAP NetWeaver Portal (with various usage types) which is install on premises to two products with several deployment options. SAP NetWeaver Portal 7.4 – On Premises, Using CAL or hosted on HEC and the SAP HANA Cloud Portal, running on top of the SAP HANA Cloud Platform. The attached whitepaper is aimed at helping customers choose between the different options – provide clear(-ish) guidelines on when to use what.

Update – Here is the link to the full white paper on SCN

I will also be discussing this topic in the upcoming SAP TechEd 2013 in Las Vegas in the Expert Networking lounge (in the SAP Mentors Lounge). Would be happy for any feedback.

  • Hi Yariv,

    is it possible that the excellent white paper can be hosted on the SDN, I'd like to download it, but on Slideshare I need to open a SlideShare account to do that.

    It would benefit everybody in SCN interested in Portal is this document was hosted on the SCN.

    Next request, would be kind enough to tag this blog as NetWeaver_Achitecture and consequently make this excellent architecture blog show up in the new SCN Architecture Category.

    Thanks for an excellent blog and white paper.

    Best regards,


    • Hi Andy,

      Thanks for the kind words...

      I'm in the process of uploading the full document to SCN - Will update the link here once its done.
