This guide describes the most common scenarios, use cases, and options for migrating SAP HANA systems from on-premises or other cloud platforms to the Amazon Web Services Cloud.

This guide is intended for SAP architects, SAP engineers, IT architects, and IT administrators who want to learn about the methodologies for migrating SAP HANA systems to AWS, or who want to have a better understanding of migration approaches to AWS in general.

This guide does not replace AWS and SAP documentation and is not intended to be a step-by-step, detailed migration guide. For a list of helpful resources, see the Additional Reading section. Information and recommendations regarding integrator and partner tools are also beyond the scope of this guide. Also, some of the migration scenarios may involve additional technology, expertise, and process changes, as discussed later in this guide.
