SAP HANA on AWS
SAP HANA Quick Start

Deployment Scenarios

This guide serves as a reference for customers who are interested in deploying SAP HANA on AWS in a self-service fashion. The AWS CloudFormation templates provided with this Quick Start bootstrap the AWS infrastructure and automate the deployment of SAP HANA on the AWS Cloud from scratch. The Quick Start provides the following deployment scenarios:

  • Single-AZ deployment (single-node and multi-node): This scenario uses a single Availability Zone for the deployment. The single-node option provisions a single EC2 instance for SAP HANA in the private subnet of the Availability Zone. The multi-node option provisions up to five EC2 instances for SAP HANA in the private subnet. You can choose from two additional deployment options:

    • Deploying SAP HANA into a new VPC (end-to-end deployment) builds the VPC, subnets, NAT gateway, security groups, bastion host, and optional Windows Server and SAP HANA server(s) with Amazon EBS.

    • Deploying SAP HANA into an existing VPC provisions SAP HANA servers in your existing infrastructure.

       

  • Multi-AZ deployment (single-node): This scenario uses two Availability Zones for the SAP HANA environment. It provisions two SAP HANA servers (primary and secondary) in separate private subnets in those zones and configures them for high availability. You can choose from two additional deployment options:

    • Deploying SAP HANA into a new VPC (end-to-end deployment) builds the VPC, subnets, NAT gateway, security groups, bastion host, optional Windows Server, and two SAP HANA servers (primary and secondary) with Amazon EBS.

    • Deploying SAP HANA into an existing VPC provisions two SAP HANA servers in your existing infrastructure and configures them for high availability.

The next sections discuss the Quick Start architecture for each scenario.
