Today, we are announcing three new features for AWS Launch Wizard; including the ability to add subordinate/ standby HANA and application server nodes after deployments, support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.6, and support for 18/24 TB Amazon EC2 High Memory Instances with hourly pricing and EC2 Savings Plans.
This new scaling feature builds on our previous announcement enhancement allowing you to add nodes to SAP systems deployed with AWS Launch Wizard from within the console post-deployment. Rather than needing to over-provision at launch, you can simply add nodes as your needs increase to help reduce costs. You can also add nodes before predictable spikes in demand, such as during month-end close. For a full list of supported deployment patterns and scaling scenarios, visit the AWS Launch Wizard documentation.
AWS Launch Wizard offers a guided way of sizing, configuring, and deploying AWS resources for third party applications, such as Microsoft SQL Server Always On and HANA based SAP systems, without the need to manually identify and provision individual AWS resources.
