SAP Cloud: previously called Essentials Edition (ES) and Multi-Tenant Edition (MTE) (1)
Software as a Service (SaaS) only available as SAP S/4 HANA. It is not supported by Winshuttle as this solution is controlled by SAP entirely with no access to the database, server etc. Therefore, no additional add-ons can be installed on the SAP Server (e.g. WFM installation is not possible).
SAP Cloud Extended Edition: previously called Single-Tenant Edition (STE) (2)
Also Software as a Service (SaaS) and only available as S/4HANA. However, this release is customer specific and more customisation and development is possible. Supported by Winshuttle.
SAP Cloud, Private Cloud Edition (new in 2021 and known as PCE) (3)
The latest offering from SAP to host SAP applications, as Software as a Service (SaaS), using Hyperscalers, but with SAP managing the infrastructure, database and Basis layers. Supported by Winshuttle. Is typically applicable for SAP S/4 HANA.
On-Premise managed by SAP (HEC) (4)
Software as a Service (SaaS). It is applicable for SAP S/4 HANA and ECC System. It is supported as long as a customer is meeting our product’s technical requirements.

Option 1 is not supported by Winshuttle.
