Last updated: April, 2023

This guide describes the most common scenarios, use cases, and options for migrating SAP HANA systems from on-premises or other cloud platforms to the Amazon Web Services Cloud.

This guide is intended for SAP architects, SAP engineers, IT architects, and IT administrators who want to learn about the methodologies for migrating SAP HANA systems to Amazon, or who want to have a better understanding of migration approaches to Amazon in general.

This guide does not replace Amazon and SAP documentation and is not intended to be a step-by-step, detailed migration guide. Some of the migration scenarios may involve additional technology, expertise, and process changes, as discussed later in this guide.
