Technical Requirements

  1. If necessary, request a service limit increase for the instance type that you’re planning to use for your SAP HANA system. If you already have an existing deployment that uses this instance type, and you think you might exceed the default limit with this deployment, you will need to request an increase. For details, see Amazon EC2 Service Limits in the AWS documentation.

  2. Ensure that you have a key pair that you can use to launch your Amazon EC2 instance. If you need to create or import a key pair, refer to Amazon EC2 Key Pairs in the AWS documentation.

  3. Ensure that you have the network details of the VPC, such as VPC ID and subnet ID, where you plan to launch the Amazon EC2 instance that will host SAP HANA.

  4. Ensure that you have a security group to attach to the Amazon EC2 instance that will host SAP HANA and that the required ports are open. If needed, create a new security group that allows the traffic for SAP HANA ports. For a detailed list of ports, see Appendix C in the SAP HANA on AWS Quick Start guide.

  5. If you intend to use AWS CLI to launch your instances, ensure that you have installed and configured AWS CLI with the necessary credentials. For details, see Installing the AWS Command Line Interface in the AWS documentation.

  6. If you intend to use the console to launch your instances, ensure that you have credentials and permissions to launch and configure Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, and other services. For details, see Access Management in the AWS documentation.
