Amazon EC2 High Memory instances offer 6 TB, 9 TB, or 12 TB of memory in a single instance. These instances are designed to run large in-memory databases, including production installations of SAP HANA, in the cloud. EC2 High Memory instances are the first Amazon EC2 instances powered by an 8-socket platform with latest generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable (Skylake) processors that are optimized for mission-critical enterprise workloads. EC2 High Memory instances deliver high networking throughput and low-latency with 25 Gbps of aggregate network bandwidth using Amazon Elastic Network Adapter (ENA)-based Enhanced Networking. EC2 High Memory instances are EBS-Optimized by default, and support encrypted and unencrypted EBS volumes. To learn more visit Amazon EC2 High Memory Instances

Standard Installation
SAP S/4HANA can be easily deployed on the AWS cloud using the standard SAP S/4HANA installation process. To simplify and streamline the SAP HANA database installation, we have created the SAP HANA Quick Start reference deployment for SAP HANA. For information about installing the SAP S/4HANA NetWeaver AS instance on AWS, see the SAP on AWS Implementation and Operations 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 trial here.

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 of the configurations uses separate EC2 instances for the SAP HANA database system and 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.
