Launching your instance via AWS CloudFormation

How to monitor and control your AWS costs

You will be responsible for operating your AWS account and you will have to pay for the hosting costs. In order to control your costs, we suggest you stop your instance when you are not using it. Starting your instance just takes a few minutes, so you can fire it up when you need it. To stop your instance, find it in the AWS console, right click the instance and choose "Stop" from the context menu. To start it again, choose "Start" from the same context menu.

Please note that AWS also charges you very little for stopped instances - if you want to stop using your SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration instance on AWS, and you don't want to pay any more monthly bills, make sure to terminate your instance. It will then be permanently deleted. To terminate your instance, choose "Terminate" from the context menu.

AWS also provides tools to monitor your usage, so there are no surprises when you get your monthly bill - from your "My Account / Console" menu on the top right corner of the screen on http://aws.amazon.com, choose "Account Activity" and you will see your activity for the current month.

External Connectivity

Amazon VPC provides customers with several options for interconnecting their AWS virtual networks with other remote networks. This whitepaper describes several such common network connectivity options available to our customers. This includes connectivity options for integrating remote customer networks with Amazon VPC as well as interconnecting multiple Amazon VPCs into a contiguous virtual network. Download whitepaper.

Getting help

The SAP Process Orchestration Developer License is free of charge (except your hosting cost on AWS), but comes without SAP product support. In case you any questions, please seek help on the Process Orchestration discussion forum. Please make sure to first check if there are ongoing discussions on this topic and join the conversation there rather than creating a new discussion.

SAP Value Prototyping team is offering cloud solution services based on time under Statement of Work too. Should you wish to use these services, please contact Kiril R. Kirov for more details.
