Amazon Web Services (AWS) and SAP have developed a close collaborative alliance dedicated to creating innovative solutions for businesses of all sizes and to delivering maximum customer value.

New and existing SAP customers and partners can deploy SAP solutions on the AWS cloud in both production and non-production environments knowing that SAP and AWS have tested the underlying AWS resources, verified their performance, and certified them against the same standards that SAP applies to traditional IT infrastructures.

AWS is completely self-service and you only pay for the resources you need and use. With AWS you don’t need to wait days, weeks or even months for capitol to be approved and infrastructure to be procured, deployed and configured. You can deploy the infrastructure needed to support a complete SAP environment in only a few hours.

Amazon EC2 provides standard Windows Server, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server images that you can install SAP solutions on top of just like any physical or virtual server in your own datacenter. Once you have completed the SAP installation, post-installation steps and configuration tasks you can create your own Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and use it to rapidly deploy new systems in the future. Pre-built SAP system images built by SAP and SAP partners are also available on AWS. These pre-built images enable you to deploy a pre-installed, fully configured SAP system in less than 30 minutes. You can find pre-built SAP system images at the links below
