Supports SAP HANA Platform Edition 1 SPS 9–12 and SAP HANA Platform Edition 2 SPS 0–5

This Quick Start reference deployment guide provides detailed instructions for deploying SAP HANA on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud by using AWS CloudFormation templates. The Quick Start builds and configures the AWS environment for SAP HANA by provisioning AWS resources such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).

This guide is for IT infrastructure architects, system administrators, SAP Basis architects, and SAP Basis administrators who want to implement or extend SAP HANA workloads on AWS.

If you have an AWS account, and you are familiar with AWS services and SAP HANA, launch the Quick Start to build one of the architectures shown in the Architecture section in a new or existing virtual private cloud (VPC). Each deployment takes 25–60 minutes to complete, depending on the selected configuration. If you are new to AWS or SAP HANA, review the architectures, read the implementation details, and follow the step-by-step instructions, provided later in this guide. For more information, see the AWS CloudFormation templates that automate the deployment.
