SAP Deployment Options

Central Hub Deployment In this scenario, the complete UI layer consisting of the central UI add-on, the product-specific UI add-ons and the SAP Gateway is contained in the ABAP front-end server.  The ABAP back-end server contains the business logic and the back-end data. Recommendation is to use the Central Hub Deployment, if several SAP backend systems need to be connected
Embedded Hub Deployment In this scenario, SAP Gateway system is deployed on the same server as the Business Suite. Embedded Deployment can make sense, if you only need to connect to one backend system.
