Networking and VPC for SAP on AWS
1m 30s
Start course

This course provides an overview of networking and VPC configuration options for SAP environments running on AWS.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how to architect your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud to support the deployment of an SAP environment
  • Explore different strategies for connecting your on-premises networks to AWS to facilitate access to your SAP environment
  • Learn about different supported VPC architectures for SAP that can be configured based on your organization’s requirements

Intended Audience

This course has been created for anyone who is responsible for implementing and managing SAP workloads on AWS, as well as anyone who is looking to take the AWS Certified: SAP on AWS - Specialty certification exam.


To get the most out of this course, you should have an understanding of Amazon VPC, including how to configure public and private subnets, security groups, and network ACLs. You should also be aware of different ways to access AWS from on-premises networks, including AWS VPN and Direct Connect.



Hello, and welcome to the final lecture in this course, where I want to quickly summarize what we’ve covered.

In this course, we learned about different architectures you can use when deploying SAP on AWS. We introduced Virtual Private Cloud, or VPC, which is your own isolated virtual network within a region of the AWS Cloud where you’ll specify an IP range and provision all of the resources necessary to support your SAP deployment. We learned how you can connect your on-premises environments to AWS using either a Site-to-Site VPN, which provides an encrypted connection over the internet, or AWS Direct Connect, which provides a dedicated high-bandwidth, low-latency connection. We discussed the differences between public and private subnets, and how you can deploy your SAP resources to different subnets across multiple VPCs, AWS regions, and even AWS accounts, using VPC Peering or AWS Transit Gateways to facilitate communication between these different VPCs.

That brings me to the end of this lecture, and to the end of this course. You should now have a greater understanding of your options when configuring the network architecture for your SAP solutions running in the AWS Cloud.

Feedback on our courses here at Cloud Academy is valuable to both us as trainers and any students looking to take the same course in the future. If you have any feedback, positive or negative, it would be greatly appreciated if you could email

Thank you so much for your time and best of luck with your continued learning!
