      Hello Xiaohua/Vivian,

      when you write about


      'To help you discover the potential and reimagine your business, the SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 30-day trial is available in the SAP Cloud Appliance Library (http://cal.sap.com).'


      How can I extend the 30-day trial? Is it a must have to buy a private landscape or can it extended by a monthly fee? you wrote


      '1. Securing your private landscape as long as you need, by purchasing an SAP Cloud Appliance Library Subscription Package. SAP software license is required.'


      thanks Andreas

      hi Andreas,

      currently you cannot direclty extend the 30-day trial. If you need a longer usage of the solution, you need to go for the subscription package, which will require valid SAP product license (BYOL).

      SAP Cloud Appliance Library is working on a process to "transit" 30-day trial into subscription solution. In the future, you can transfer the 30-day trial directly into subscription mode.

      However, it is not intended to extend TRIAL period.

      hope it clarifies.

      Best, Vivian

      Hello Mrinal,

      The SAP Cloud Appliance Library subscription is currently priced at EUR 750 per 1 active cloud instance per month.

      For more information about the support entitlements and the mechanics of how this works, see the SCN article.

      You can purchase the SAP Cloud Appliance Library subscription online on the SAP Store.


      If you are an SAP partner see the SAP Private Partner Demo Showroom offering.

      Hi Stanimir,

      Thanks for your reply.

      Please inform whether this SAP Cloud Appliance Library subscription is for only Cloud edition of S/4 or for onpremise also. Is there any limit on usage of hours 750 EUR per month. Can I set up my own scenarios or work similar to a sandbox for more 'Hands on'.

      With regards,

      Mrinal

      Hi Mrinal,

      With the SAP Cloud Appliance Library subscription package you can decide how many concurrently deployed instances you would like to have. You can even mix and match the different solutions to make provision for your instances, as long as the number of provisioned instances at any given time does not exceed the number covered by your subscription. One of the available solutions is S/4 on HANA on-premise.

      Please note that you also have to install a valid SAP product license for S/4 on HANA on-premise. This license defines in what scenarios you could use the system.

      Best regards,

      Stanimir

      Hi Stanimir,

      Thanks for your reply.

      Actually, I wanted to know the option for an individual to try for 'Hands on' experience (like sandbox) for S/4 HANA.

      With regards,

      Mrinal

      Hi Mrinal,

      The best option to try S/4 HANA on premise is to leverage the 30-day free trial offering. If you want to do more than a trial, for example a customer demo, or if you want to keep the S/4 system beyond the trial period you will have to order both the S/4 product license and the SAP CAL subscription.

      Best regards,

      Stanimir

      I got the 14 day trial but I dont get access to code base, Its simply fiori end user application access to get familliarize the UI/functionality?  Am i missing something in exploring the code base with that trial?

      Hi Naresh,

      I assume you used the 14-day free trial for the S/4HANA cloud edition (https://go.sap.com/cmp/oth/crm-s4hana/index.html -> cloud edition on left side on that page) ? There, you won't have access to the code base or any administrative functions since this is a public cloud environment.

      You can start a trial for the S/4HANA on-premise version (same page as above, right side) which will give you access to ABAP backend, server OS, ...

      SAP licenses are waived for 30 days but you have to bear the hosting costs at Amazon AWS (~4.00 USD per uptime hour).

      We will update the on-premise trial with the latest version (SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition 1511 FPS 01) in the next days so maybe wait a bit until it's there.

      Best,

      Joerg

      Hi Joerg,

      Thanks for reply with some good information on trial . 2 questions

      * Will we be able to use the trial with AWS as sandbox for S/4 HANA

      * What is the option if we want to use trial for more than a month.. we also want to have some hands on as s/4 HANA evolves with new features , functionlaities , Add ons etc.

      With regards,

      Mrinal

      Hi Mrinal,

      bit of a late reply. The trial update has been released (same place as above).

      Information (also on how to extend the 30-days) can be found here.

      You need to apply your own updates, though, the on-premise trial for the next months will stay on S/4HANA 1511 FPS01. The cloud trial (see my answer above for differences) will be updated more often.

      Hi kadali,

      Have you already checked CAL FAQ - Specific questions for Amazon Web Services? Most probably the EC2 service is not enabled in your AWS account.

      Hi Xiaohua,

      I am not able to  activate trial access for S/4  hana  on premise as I don't have any cloud  account.  It is prompting to enter secret key.  Please guide.

      Thanks,

      Hi Kanwal,

      AWS account is pre-requisite for using the trial (AWS will also issue the secret key during account creation).

      If you are interested in a trial without AWS hosting, try out the public trial of the SAP S/4HANA cloud edition (less functionality and options compared to the on-premise trial).

      Landing page for the cloud trial:

      Hi Experts,

      If I want to create a demo on S/4 HANA AWS on premise with use of SAP Activate ( using best practices installed) do I need to have solman 7.2 from AWS as well( this is available i hope on CAL) and can anyone please guide on how I can connect the solman to S/4 HANA in AWS ( is there any document already available).

      If not this option, then do we need to start from scratch for configuration for a demo?

      thanks
