  42. 42. Planning and Best Practices
  43. 43. SAP Deployment Options Standard SAP Installation Primary option for deploying SAP applications on Amazon EC2 is the standard SAP installation procedure for the particular SAP solution. The process to install an SAP solution on an Amazon EC2 instance is very similar to the process for any other physical or virtual server. Pre-Built SAP Image Some SAP solutions are available as prebuilt system images on Amazon EC2. A pre-built SAP system image contains a pre-installed and pre-configured SAP solution that enables you to provision a new SAP system by simply launching an Amazon EC2 instance from the system image. Pre-built SAP system images are available from the following sources: • • • • AWS Marketplace SAP Trial Systems SAP Developer Images SAP Cloud Appliance Library
  44. 44. Installing SAP Systems on AWS  Download SAP Software directly from service marketplace to installation or bastion host.  Use EBS volume to maintain a repo of installation software  Leverage installation and operations guides @ http://aws.sap.com/sap  SAPInst & Download Manager require X Windows environment on Linux. (i.e. NoMachine)
  45. 45. SAP Support and Monitoring In order to ensure full support of SAP solutions on AWS you must follow the guidelines in SAP note # 1656250 To enable the built-in SAP monitors to retrieve information about configuration and resource utilization from the underlying AWS infrastructure the following tasks must be completed:  AWS CloudWatch Detailed Monitoring must be enabled on each Amazon EC2 instance to ensure that the required AWS metrics are provided in one-minute intervals.  AWS Data Provider for SAP must be installed, configured and running on each Amazon EC2 instance. The AWS Data Provider collects the required performance and configuration data from a variety of sources including the Amazon EC2 API, Amazon EC2 Instance Metadata Service and AWS CloudWatch.
  46. 46. AWS Data Provider for SAP Collects performance and configuration data from the EC2 API’s, EC2 Instance Metadata Service, and AWS CloudWatch and surfaced into SAP. Installation guide: http://s3.amazonaws.com/aws-data-provider/aws-data-provider-ig.pdf
  47. 47. Data Provider for SAP – Technical Requirements  IAM Role must be configured & assigned to Instance Installation guide: http://s3.amazonaws.com/aws-data-provider/aws-data-provider-ig.pdf
  48. 48. Data Provider for SAP – Connectivity Options  EC2 instance must have an active route to the internet to be able to access EC2 and CloudWatch management services VPC to Internet via Internet Gateway VPC to Internet via Customer Datacenter
  49. 49. SAP Sizing on AWS Sizing of SAP systems on AWS uses the standard SAP sizing procedure. Information about SAP sizing can be found at http://service.sap.com/sizing The first step of any SAP sizing is to use the Use the SAP Quick Sizer to determine the SAPS needed to support your business requirements. Once the required SAPS are determines you can then use the SAPS ratings of the SAP-certified Amazon EC2 instance types listed in SAP note # 1656099 to architect you SAP environment on AWS.
  50. 50. Default Hostnames The default behavior of an AWS Instance is to generate a new hostname at the time an Instance is launched from an AMI and when an Instance is stopped/started. This behavior is not appropriate for an SAP system and can be disabled by following the steps provided below… Windows SUSE Red Hat 1. Start -> Programs -> EC2ConfigService Settings 2. On the General tab, deselect “Set Computer Name” 1. Start yast 2. Navigate to Network Devices -> Network Settings (press enter) 3. Select Hostname/DNS in the menu 4. Change the values of the Hostname and Domain Name fields as required 5. Uncheck “Change Hostname via DHCP” 6. F10 (to save) 7. F9 (to exit) 1. Edit file /etc/sysconfig/network 2. Change parameter HOSTNAME and replace value with the new hostname 3. Restart OS For additional information about the allowed hostname length and characters see SAP Note #611361.
  51. 51. SAP Hardware Keys on EC2 SAP hardware key generation on EC2 instances is dependent on a specific SAP kernel patch level. The required SAP kernel patch levels can be found in SAP note #1697114  Before generating a license for a given “hardware ID” you should insure that the SAP kernel is at the required patch level.  If a license key is generated before patching the SAP kernel then the hardware key could change making the installed license invalid.
  52. 52. Instance I/O Performance Each Amazon EC2 instance type provides a certain level of I/O performance. The type of SAP system and its I/O performance requirements will determine which EC2 instance type should be used. Standard Instances EBS-Optimized Instances Cluster Compute Instances Standard Amazon EC2 instances types use a shared interface for network and I/O throughput. Certain standard instance types are available as EBS-Optimized instances. An EBS-Optimized instance uses an optimized configuration stack and provides additional, dedicated capacity for EBS I/O. Like standard instances Cluster Compute instances us a shared interface for network and I/O throughput. Cluster Compute instances have very high I/O performance using 10 Gigabit Ethernet. To ensure optimal I/O performance for SAP production systems, either EBS-Optimized or Cluster Compute instance types should be used.
  53. 53. EBS Performance For SAP production systems and other SAP system types that require high I/O performance it is recommend to use Provisioned IOPS EBS volumes. Standard EBS volumes are well suited for SAP test, demo, POC type systems. Sample EBS layout for Medium to Large SAP PRD / QAS DB server File system root /swap /usr/sap /[DB log files] /[DB data files] # of EBS Volumes Volume Type GB p/volume GB Total IOPS p/volume IOPS Total Striping 1 1 1 1 5 Standard Standard Standard PIOPS PIOPS 10 100 100 100 500 10 100 100 100 1,500 N/A N/A N/A 2,000 2,000 N/A N/A N/A 2,000 10,000 No No No No Yes
  54. 54. Migrating an Existing SAP system to AWS The standard SAP homogeneous / heterogeneous system copy procedure is the recommended method to migrate an existing SAP system to AWS. The high level steps to migrate an SAP system to AWS are: 1. Create export of the source system using Software Provisioning Manager 2. Copy or ship the export / DB backup data to AWS 3. Install new target system on Amazon EC2 using export of the source system Two options to copy data to AWS: Network Copy – For systems less than 1 TB. Consider acceleration utilities like Tsunami UDP AWS Import/Export – For systems greater than 1 TB http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/1680045
  55. 55. SAP Support Connection - SAProuter on AWS When setting up a SAProuter on AWS and SAP support network connection the following guidelines should be followed: 1. The instance that the SAProuter software will be installed on should be launched into a public subnet of a VPC and should be assigned an Elastic IP Address (EIP) 2. A specific Security Group should be created for the SAProuter instance with the necessary rules to allow the required inbound and outbound access to the SAP support network 3. The type of Internet connection that should be used is Secure Network Communication (SNC), see https://service.sap.com/internetconnection
  56. 56. SAP Support Connection - SAProuter on AWS 10.0.0.0 / 16 Private IP’s (Private Routes) 10.0.x.x / 24 NAT Security Groups SAP Router 3 & 4. SAProuter work 5.

Determine Ports Used (based on Instance No & access required) Install saprouter server on AWS in a public subnet, modify saprouttab permission table being used by the SAP Router. Only allow access to AWS instance for saprouter from SAP saprouter endpoint. Edit SAP System Security groups to trust saprouter security group for required ports. Open the appropriate service connection https://service.sap.com/access-support for your support case. Open OSS message and maintain logon data.
  57. 57. SAP Support Connection - SAProuter On-Premises 10.0.0.0/16 10.0.x.x / 24 Security Groups Users Other Important: Restrict Inbound access to IP addresses ranges only necessary for access.
