Security - SAP HANA on Amazon
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


In the Amazon Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF), security is a perspective that focuses on subjects such as account governance, account ownership, control frameworks, change and access management, and other security best practices. We recommend that you become familiar with these security processes when planning any type of migration. In some cases, you might need to get sign-off from your internal IT audit and security teams before you start your migration project or during migration. See the CAF security whitepaper for a deeper dive into each of these topic areas.

Additionally, there are Amazon services that help you secure your systems in Amazon. For example, Amazon CloudTrail, Amazon CloudWatch, and Amazon Config can help you secure your Amazon environment.

See the following Amazon blog posts for help analyzing and evaluating architectures and design patterns for the VPC setup and configuration of your SAP landscape.

Beyond VPC and network security, SAP HANA systems require routine maintenance to remain secure, reliable, and available; see the SAP HANA operations overview for specific recommendations in this topic area.
