The SAP Cloud Appliance Library provides an easy to consume delivery of SAP business suite content as software appliances directly into the cloud accounts of existing business suite customers: The library of preconfigured SAP solutions can be deployed instantly in the cloud. You can spend your time on the evaluation and innovation and not worry about the hassle of setting up and configuring your SAP solution.
Sounds quite well for some marketing campaign, but you as an SCN power user want to see the real thing instead. I’m happy to announce that we have created two trial offerings from which you can choose. The first one offering is limited to 8 hours run time and all you need is an SCN user – no account at a cloud provider, no SAP license at all! The second offering is limited to 30 days – which gives you more time for the evaluation. In order to subscribe for it, you need an S-User or SCN User, an valid SAP ERP license as well as an cloud provider account. The benefit of the second trial is, there is no limitation in the functionality of SAP Cloud Appliance Library.
