Can I automate the deployment of CAL images to a a hyperscaler like Azure?

I want to write a script that I can configure and store in my course code repository so that after I use Terraform and Ansible to setup an IaaS instance with the SAP HANA data base I want to continue the automation of the dpeloyment of the software application onto said same box.

It seems there's a disconnect right now between automation of the box / server and HANA DB but not the actual applications them selves via a deployed / config automated template.

    Hello Chris,

    The deployment of SAP CAL imaged is supported only via the SAP CAL UI.

    Best regards,

    Hello Chris

    What you ask is a normal behavior in hyperscalers deployments.

    You can do it in AWS using Cloudformation, also you can combine CloudFormation with Chef, Puppet or Terraform (We love Chef and Terraform)

    SAP provides you a big list of systems in AWS marketplace you can choose.

    https://aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/

    Also take a look at AWS QuickStart as they released in 2019 S/4HANA quickstart in AWS to help you deploy SAP on AWS based on best practices for security and high availability.
