Amazon Web Services offers you the ability to run your SAP HANA systems of various sizes and operating systems. Running SAP systems on AWS is very similar to running SAP systems in your data center. To a SAP Basis or NetWeaver administrator, there are minimal differences between the two environments. There are a number of AWS Cloud considerations relating to security, storage, compute configurations, management, and monitoring that will help you get the most out of your SAP HANA implementation on AWS.

This technical article provides the best practices for deployment, operations, and management of SAP HANA systems on AWS. The target audience is SAP Basis and NetWeaver administrators who have experience running SAP HANA systems in an on-premises environment and want to run their SAP HANA systems on AWS.
