Quick Start Reference Deployment Guide

Deployment Steps

The procedure for an end-to-end deployment of SAP HANA on AWS consists of the following steps. For detailed instructions, follow the links for each step.

  • Step 1. Prepare an AWS account

    This involves signing up for an AWS account, choosing a region, creating a key pair, and requesting increases for account limits, if necessary.

  • Step 2. Subscribe to RHEL for SAP HANA (skip this step if you’re planning to use the SLES operating system)

    The RHEL AMI is available from the AWS MarketPlace via subscription.

  • Step 3. Download the SAP HANA software (skip this step if you don’t want to install SAP HANA software with the deployment)

    This step involves downloading the SAP HANA software from SAP and placing the files in an S3 bucket.

  • Step 4. Launch the stack

    In this step, you’ll launch the AWS CloudFormation template into your AWS account, specify parameter values, and create the stack. The Quick Start provides separate templates for end-to-end deployment and deployment into an existing Amazon VPC.

  • Step 5. Access SAP HANA nodes to verify your deployment

    You can access nodes by using SAP HANA Studio or through SSH and the bastion host.

  • Step 6. Complete any post-deployment tasks

    Before you start using SAP HANA on AWS, we recommend that you check for the latest updates and make sure that your system is backed up and configured correctly.
