(auch in deutsch verf├╝gbar)

With the availability of Microsoft Azure Germany we also enable customers to deploy SAP scenarios in Azure Germany. We noticed a lot of customers worldwide already using their complete SAP systems or parts of it in Azure regions. Since we offer the biggest VM types in the Azure portfolio also in Azure Germany, even complex SAP systems can be deployed in Azure Germany.

The following sample scenarios could be enabled with Azure Germany:

  • All Netweaver based SAP systems with the databases Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, SAP ASE and SAP maxDB can be used running on the operating systems Windows, SUSE Linux or Red Hat Linux. There may be restrictions in the combination between operation system and databases, please look for the exact combination in SAP note 1928533. Those scenarios are of course suitable for production, test and development use-cases.
  • Due to the availability of the G/GS series in Azure Germany even SAP HANA (productive and non-productive) scenarios can be deployed in Azure Germany, like SAP ERP, SAP BW, SAP S/4HANA and BW/4HANA. So Azure Germany is the ideal solution to test new SAP products like SAP S/4HANA and BW/4HANA and in certain cases even run productive solutions. More information is available from SAP here.
  • SAP Business Objects scenarios can also be realized in Azure Germany in productive, test or development scenarios, including ETL scenarios based on SAP Data Services.
