Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) provides a wide selection of instance types optimized to fit different use cases. Instance types comprise varying combinations of CPU, memory, storage, and networking capacity and give you the flexibility to choose the appropriate mix of resources for your applications. Each instance type includes one or more instance sizes, allowing you to scale your resources to the requirements of your target workload.

AWS has worked closely with SAP to test and certify a subset of Amazon EC2 Instance Types for SAP solutions. Information about the Amazon EC2 Instance Types that are certified and supported for SAP can be found be found at the links below:

AWS offers Previous Generation instance types for customers who have optimized their applications around these instance types and have yet to upgrade. Previous Generation instance types are still fully supported and retain the same features and functionality. For new SAP implementations on or migrations to AWS Current Generation Instance Types should be used.
