Introduction AWS has been supporting SAP workloads in the cloud since 2008, and SAP customers in the cloud since 2011. Over these years, our customers running SAP workloads have witnessed unprecedented growth in the data generated by their enterprises. As a consequence, customers have been looking for low latency and enhanced performance for their databases […]
Introduction In our first blog, Terraform your SAP Infrastructure on AWS, we began the SAP on AWS DevOps journey by defining the SAP infrastructure as code (IaC) . By doing this, we demonstrated with our Terraform modules here on GitHub and here on the Terraform Registry, by defining SAP as code, infrastructure and servers can quickly be deployed […]
Introduction As I reflect on 2020, I first want to acknowledge how unbelievably crazy it has been. Almost universally, our way of life has been changed due to COVID-19 and other world events, and it’s been difficult for so many. The pandemic forced organizations to make deep operational changes almost immediately to meet the needs […]
More and more customers are looking into migrating SAP to the cloud. While lots of customers have moved to SAP HANA, there are still many cases, where non HANA databases, what SAP calls AnyDB, are being used. These SAP systems can also be critical and it is important to implement a solid backup and restore […]
Infrastructure as Code Customers’ SAP systems are critical for business operations, so when architects and administrators plan their deployments and operations there is a focus on following SAP best practices. Moreover, as workload requirements change, teams must iterate and adapt quickly to provision the required infrastructure keeping in mind all the security tenets, performance best […]
In this blog post, we describe a cloud native approach to demonstrate the power and capabilities of AWS. There are still good reasons for HANA System Replication (HSR) or third-party cluster software to build productive systems in cloud environments. However, we focus on an alternative approach by using cloud native features, such as Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling and Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) Snapshots. With these features we build an infrastructure with native backup/restore functionality, automated processes, and the focus of low costs, for non-critical SAP applications.
In this post, we outline the benefits of tagging and provide recommendations for customers and partners deploying SAP workloads on AWS. Recommended tags are based on practices we’ve seen across a number of our engagements. Customers can directly use all of these tags or modify them to fit their own needs.
