Overview

For SAP customers and partners who are new to Amazon Web Services (AWS), the process of estimating your monthly AWS bill might seem a bit overwhelming at first. This guide explains how to estimate the cost of running your SAP environment on AWS.

The number and types of services offered by AWS has increased dramatically over time, but the AWS philosophy on pricing has not changed: at the end of each month, you pay only for what you use, and you can start or stop using a service at any time. No long-term contracts are required.

This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who need to estimate the monthly cost of running SAP environments on AWS. For the purposes of this guide, we assume that you already know how to architect and size SAP solutions on AWS. If you do not, before you continue, we suggest that you read the SAP on AWS Overview and Planning documentation.

To help you understand how to effectively estimate the cost of running your SAP environment on AWS, we provide three examples of SAP on AWS pricing using the AWS Simple Monthly Calculator. For each example, we review the architecture on AWS, example usage of each service, cost breakdown for each service, and total estimated monthly charge.
