AWS is pleased to release a major update to the SAP HANA Quick Start that supports Multi-AZ, single-node configurations with high availability. 

The Multi-AZ option uses two Availability Zones for the SAP HANA environment on AWS. It provisions two SAP HANA servers (primary and secondary) in separate, private subnets in those zones and configures them for high availability. You can choose to create a new virtual private cloud (VPC) for your deployment, or provision the SAP HANA servers in your existing infrastructure. The deployment takes about 35 minutes.

The Multi-AZ, single-node, high-availability architecture is based on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) High Availability Extension (HAE), which is part of the SLES for SAP operating system. The Quick Start supports a performance-optimized setup, where the SAP HANA primary and secondary servers share the same instance size and other characteristics, and use synchronous replication mode.

You can also choose a Single-AZ, single-node or multi-node architecture, as with the previous version of the Quick Start.

To try out the updated Quick Start, use the following resources:

Quick Starts are automated reference deployments for key workloads on the AWS Cloud. Each Quick Start launches, configures, and runs the AWS compute, network, storage, and other services required to deploy a specific workload on AWS, using AWS best practices for security and availability.
