|Longevity: has been offering cloud services for over a decade.||Has offered cloud services since 2010.|
|Operates as a fully virtualised platform – DevOps, FinOps and SecOps won’t work without this. Physical hardware is unagile and a fixed cost.||Currently remains a split architecture between virtual (Azure) and Physical (HLI) running in independent zones.|
|Has the largest virtual 4/HANA certified platforms (4TB), with 8 announced in 16TB due to be released this year.|
|Has been a Garter recognised leader since the cloud quadrant was released.|
