SAP customers can fully realize all the benefits of SAP S/4HANA in the AWS Cloud for systems of all sizes. With SAP S/4HANA on AWS you can:

  • Achieve faster time to value with the AWS on-demand infrastructure.
  • Rapidly provision infrastructure for SAP S/4HANA with no upfront cost or long-term commitment.
  • Pay for only what you need. Don't spend upfront costs purchasing hardware for what you can't forecast.
  • Test and evaluate SAP S/4HANA with a free trial offering from SAP on AWS.

For the first time, customers have the ability to leverage scale-out setups for their SAP S/4HANA workloads in the cloud and take advantage of the innovation of the AWS Nitro system, a combination of purpose-built hardware and software components that provide the unparalleled performance, security, isolation, elasticity, and efficiency of the infrastructure that powers Amazon EC2 instances. You can now scale-out up to four nodes, totaling 48 TB of memory, for extremely large S/4HANA deployments.

To learn more, see Announcing support for extremely large S/4HANA deployments on AWS.


For a detailed overview of the benefits and options for running SAP S/4HANA on AWS, see the SAP S/4HANA on AWS Overview Guide.


Standard installation
SAP S/4HANA can be deployed in the AWS Cloud by using the standard SAP S/4HANA installation process. To streamline the SAP HANA database installation, we have created the SAP HANA on AWS Quick Start reference deployment. For information about installing the SAP S/4HANA NetWeaver AS instance on AWS, see the SAP on AWS Overview and Planning guide.

SAP S/4HANA trial
Explore SAP S/4HANA with a free 30-day software trial from SAP on AWS. The SAP S/4HANA trial provides a complete landscape to explore the power, flexibility, and customization available in SAP S/4HANA. Start your software trial.

SAP S/4HANA on AWS uses a Bring Your Own License model for the SAP software components. Operating system licenses are provided by AWS, and their relevant license fees are combined with the base hourly fee of the respective Amazon EC2 instance type.

The following table provides pricing estimates of AWS infrastructure for sample SAP S/4HANA systems. Each configuration uses separate EC2 instances for the SAP HANA database system and the SAP NetWeaver application server system. Depending on your requirements, it is possible to collocate the SAP NetWeaver application server system on the same EC2 instance as the SAP HANA database, providing a lower cost. For additional information about estimating AWS infrastructure pricing for SAP solutions, see the SAP on AWS Pricing Guide.

The following table provides pricing estimates of AWS infrastructure for sample SAP S/4HANA three-tier (PRD/QAS/DEV) landscapes. Each configuration uses separate EC2 instances for the SAP HANA database system and the SAP NetWeaver application server system. Depending on your requirements, it might be possible to collocate the SAP NetWeaver application server system on the same EC2 instance as the SAP HANA database, providing a lower cost.
