RELATED INFORMATION

PREREQUISITES

The system landscape is hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and accessible via SAP Cloud Appliance Library (SAP CAL). You will need to create an Amazon Web Services account and an account of SAP Cloud Appliance Library if you do not already have one. Before starting the exercises, you need to create your personal system landscape (instance) in SAP Cloud Appliance Library. Afterwards you can activate and suspend the instance as you wish. There is a hosting cost associated with using AWS. This cost varies based on the size of the system landscape, and the time the instance is active. If you are not using your instance, it is possible to suspend it to reduce your costs. After you have finished using your instance, you can terminate it. This deletes your instance, and you stop incurring costs.
