  • u-6tb1.56xlarge, u-6tb1.112xlarge, u-9tb1.112xlarge, and u-12tb1.112xlarge

  • x1.16xlarge, x1.32xlarge, x1e.xlarge*, x1e.2xlarge*, x1e.4xlarge*, and x1e.32xlarge

  • r3.2xlarge*, r3.4xlarge*, and r3.8xlarge

  • r4.2xlarge* (default), r4.4xlarge*, r4.8xlarge, and r4.16xlarge

  • r5.2xlarge*, r5.4xlarge*, r5.8xlarge, r5.12xlarge, r5.16xlarge, r5.24xlarge, and r5.metal

  • r5b.2xlarge*, r5b.4xlarge*, r5b.4xlarge*, r5b.8xlarge, r5b.12xlarge, r5b.16xlarge, r5b.24xlarge, and r5b.metal

* These instance types are not supported for SAP HANA production workloads.

The default instance type is r5.2xlarge, but you can switch to one of the other supported instance types for production use during deployment: r3.8xlarge, r4.8xlarge, r4.16xlarge, r5.8xlarge, r5.12xlarge, r5.16xlarge, r5.24xlarge, r5.metal, r5b.8xlarge, r5b.12xlarge, r5b.16xlarge, r5b.24xlarge, r5b.metal, x1.16xlarge, x1.32xlarge, x1e.32xlarge, u-6tb1.56xlarge, u-6tb1.112xlarge, u-9tb1.112xlarge, u-12tb1.112xlarge, u-6tb1.metal, u-9tb1.metal, u-12tb1.metal, u-18tb1.metal, and u-24tb1.metal. For more information, see Amazon EC2 Instances. For a list of SAP-certified EC2 instances, see the SAP HANA hardware directory.

The Amazon EC2 High Memory instance types u-6tb1.metal, u-9tb1.metal, u-12tb1.metal, u-18tb1.metal, and u-24tb1.metal are offered as bare-metal instances on Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts. If you plan to use these instances, you must have a Dedicated Host for Amazon EC2 High Memory Instances allocated to your account by AWS before proceeding with your deployment.

If you want to run Amazon EC2 High Memory instances on-demand, choose one of the following sizes: u-6tb1.56xlarge, u-6tb1.112xlarge, u-9tb1.112xlarge, or u-12tb1.112xlarge. For more information, see Amazon EC2 High Memory Instances.
