Microsoft and SAP have teamed up to bring you the best of both worlds, enabling you to take advantage of on-demand resources in the cloud and maximize the value of your Microsoft and SAP investments. Azure offers a reliable, security-enabled cloud infrastructure platform that enables businesses to quickly deploy SAP solutions in the cloud.
Azure is now certified for SAP products including SAP Business Suite, SAP NetWeaver, and SAP HANA Developer Edition. Effective immediately, you can run these SAP products on Azure with full support available from both Microsoft and SAP. In addition, you can deploy and provision reconfigured SAP solutions, within minutes, directly to Azure using the SAP Cloud Appliance Library tool.
With this partnership, you can use your existing SAP licenses to deploy SAP software on Azure. Standard purchase models, pricing, and terms will be applicable for underlying Azure services, and you will consume and pay for these services as with any other deployment.
