install PI 7.5 only java in cloud (azure).


Any experience related with SAP PI installation in a cloud environment? (Not HCI). We're starting a migration project ( from PI 7.0 ABAP + Java) to PI 7.5 only Java, and one of the options is to install the PI system in a cloud environment (Azure). Do you have any similar experience?.

Thanks in advance.

    Hello Fernando,

    I had been installing SAP PO in the AWS cloud for years and there had been challenges from time to time (my first respective SCN blog is from 2010):

    Upgrade SAP CE 7.2 on AWS Cloud to SP03

    But in general it had been mostly as straight forward as on premise. I would believe Azure should not be much different.

    However, this was prior to SAP Cloud Platform Integration Services. Today, as an SAP architect, I would have a challenge to find an integration scenario that needed an on-premise integration technology installed in the cloud.

    Best regards

    Hello Frank, thanks for your fast response.

    As I mentioned my question is related with a migration project, and the client wants to consider this option. As I know the only advantage is related with the cost. And this side is out of my scope. So I only want to know about this option is any success story (if there is any).

    I'm not agree with you when you define PI as an on-premise integration technology. As I know SAP PI (or PO) is an integration technology that can run in both environments (on-premise/cloud). Most installations have been done on-premise of course but PI is not limited to an on-premise environment. Precisely I want to know the pros/const of both types of installation. As I assume the cons are related with connectivity. You must ensure the necessary connectivity between your systems and your cloud-integration platform. But I think there are no theoretical difference between using HCI and PO installed in a cloud environment. Both are integration technology and both are located in a cloud environment.

    Best regards.
