Hello, this is Evan Stoddard, one of the product managers for SAP Solution Manager.
SAP Solution Manager Product Management is pleased to announce that the solution “SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SP05 New Unconfigured Installation” is now available to SAP customers and partners via the Cloud Appliance Library (CAL) at http://cal.sap.com.
This education-focused appliance includes both SAP Solution Manager 7.2 ABAP and JAVA systems as well as a MS Windows desktop to allow easy system access via a standard SAP frontend. This appliance runs on Linux/SAP HANA, with AWS and Azure as infrastructure providers.
The purpose of this appliance is to allow SAP’s customers and partners to practice the SAP Solution Manager configuration process on a newly-created system. This new appliance has both the ABAP and JAVA systems sharing a single SAP HANA database, which reduces complexity and decreases infrastructure costs. Best of all, through the cloud infrastructure you can restore the system to a previous state easily and repeat the activation process as many times as you wish.
The steps to configure this appliance are described in the Configuration Guide, available here: https://help.sap.com/viewer/873e91135d2546998d7c1e8489ada08a/7.2.05/en-US
Support for this 30-day free trial system will take place via the SAP CAL SCN community in the same manner as other free trials: http://scn.sap.com/community/cloud-appliance-library .
