SAP Cloud Appliance Library 1.5 now available

Dear SCN community, Dear all,

A new release of SAP Cloud Appliance Library was made available to the public on May 15 providing more features to enhance usability for customers.

SAP Cloud Appliance Library (CAL) is an SAP hosted on-demand SAP HANA Cloud powered solution that designed to deliver SAP applications, e.g. business suite content as preconfigured appliances directly into the cloud accounts of existing SAP customers: Our 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.

Currently 9 appliances – one free trial solution, some plain systems, some with preconfigured RDS content – are available. This includes a HANA Platform Edition that is up and running in less than 30 minutes and several SAP ERP solutions that are ready for consumption in about 60 minutes. The current offering can be reviewed here.

With CAL 1.5 we now offer 2 different free trial options:

  1. a free trial of SAP CAL – absolutely free (no cloud provider signup/costs associated). Limited to 8hrs runtime after initial logon as well as some disabled features inside CAL. It will however give you a good impression what SAP is able to do
  2. a free trial on an SAP system (SAP ERP 6.0 with EhP5) within SAP CAL – no costs from SAP are associated, you only have to pay the cloud provider for the consumed infrastructure. Usage of the SAP ERP system is limited to 30 days – but SAP CAL has no limitation, you get access to the full fledged product. As SAP Cloud Appliance Library is for free anyway – give it a shot.

Find both offerings here: -> then navigate to the [Trial] tab

With the next release we plan to publish of a bunch of new solutions, mainly the new SAP NetWeaver 7.40 on MaxDB and HANA as well as SAP Business Suite on HANA as well. You can find the list here:

      Dear Hannes

      After spending good amounts of money and time. Suddenly the CAL cloud for Netweaver on HANA stopped working!

      A totally polluted HANA database. Compared to the MaxDB, HDB is immature,

      A refresh of the CAL instance did not work as the SAP for a NW 7.40 on HANA offering in gone. When trying other options, i ended up with "This product is not available in your country". My EC2 sits in the right place in the US, i am working in Australia, and of German origin?

      Would you mind to adjust country settings to allow access to your solutions in the Amazon cloud for everyone - this was a known problem in 2013 and it seems that it did not get properly resolved over time.

      I am returning back to my MaxDB powered instances running on VMWARE. They are reliable
