AWS has partnered with SAP to develop a close collaborative alliance committed to creating innovative solutions for companies of all sizes.
With the knowledge that SAP (News - Alert) and AWS have gained testing the performance of the underlying AWS resources, new and existing SAP customers can install their SAP solutions on SAP certified Amazon EC2 instances in various production environments.
Allowing users to test their capability, the Test Drive program by Capgemini offers them access to AWS infrastructure and SAP solutions that are pre-configured. Each Test Drive lab consists of complimentary AWS server time and is provisioned to customers in just minutes.
