SAP Business One, Version for SAP HANA, on AWS
SAP Business One Quick Start

Step 2. Set up the Network Infrastructure


If you already have a VPC, a NAT instance, and an RDP instance set up in the target region where you want to deploy SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA, skip to step 3.

In this step, you will launch an AWS CloudFormation template to automatically create the following components in your target region:

  • A VPC to set up your own virtual network with the IP address range that you define.

  • A public subnet with internet access, and a private subnet without direct internet access, with the CIDR block range that you define.

  • Security groups and an IAM role.

  • A NAT instance and RDP instance inside the public subnet.

To set up the network infrastructure, follow these steps:

  1. Launch the AWS CloudFormation template.

                                                  SAP Business One infrastructure launch

    This stack takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.


    You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this Quick Start reference deployment. There is no additional cost for using this Quick Start. For more information, see the Costs and Licenses section. Prices are subject to change. For full details, see the pricing pages for each AWS service you will be using in this Quick Start.

  2. Check the region that’s displayed in the top-right corner of the navigation bar, and change it if necessary. This is where the network infrastructure for SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA, will be built. The template is launched in the US East (Ohio) Region by default.

  3. On the Select Template page, keep the default setting for the template URL, and then choose Next.

  4. On the Specify Details page, change the stack name if needed. Review the parameters for the template. Provide a value for the KeyName parameter. For all other parameters, you can keep or customize the default settings. Choose Next when you have finished defining the parameters.

    Parameter Default Description
    DMZCIDR CIDR block for the public (DMZ) subnet located in the new VPC.
    KeyName Requires input An existing public/private key pair, which allows you to connect securely to your instance after it launches. This is the key pair you created in step 1, when you prepared your AWS account.
    NATInstanceType t2.small EC2 instance type for the NAT instances.
    PrivSubCIDR CIDR block for the private subnet where SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA, will be deployed.
    RDPInstanceType m4.large EC2 instance type for the RDP instance.
    RemoteAccessCIDR IP CIDR from which you are likely to connect to the NAT instance by using SSH. You can add rules later by modifying the created security groups, e.g.,
    VPCCIDR CIDR block for the VPC you are creating.


    You can also download the template and edit it to create your own parameters based on your specific deployment scenario.

  5. On the Options page, you can specify tags (key-value pairs) for resources in your stack and set advanced options. When you're done, choose Next.

  6. On the Review page, review and confirm the template settings. Under Capabilities, select the check box to acknowledge that the template will create IAM resources.

  7. Choose Create to deploy the stack.

  8. Monitor the status of the stack. When the status is CREATE_COMPLETE and the RDP instance has been launched successfully, as shown in Figure 5, you can continue to step 3 to download the required media for SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA.
