AWS Charges for SAP CAL Instance

Dear SAP,

We are looking to subscribe SAP CAL instance "SAP S/4HANA, on premise edition 1511 FPS01 Fully-Activated". However during trial period we observed that AWS is charging huge bill for EBS volumes even though CAL instances were down all the time.

Will AWS charge for storage of EBS volumes, per hour based on amount of data when we subscribe to CAL instance?

If yes - is there a way we can limit the amount of data on CAL - so we don't end up paying huge bills to AWS for un-used time?

Please do advise ASAP - as we would want to move ahead in the process quickly.

Best regards,

Kalyan.V

    Hello Kalyan,

    While the instance is suspended you keep paying for the EBS storage. If you want to avoid any costs you will have to terminate the instance. Please keep in mind that the terminate operation is revocable that means that all your modifications will be lost forever.

    Thanks Stanimir...But the question is - How much AWS will charge for EBS volumes on CAL? and Is there anything SAP can help to keep the storage volumes lower?

    Hi Kalyan,

    If you ask about the volume sizes, they are fixed.

    There is a cost forecast in SAP CAL. Just start creating a new instance and look at "per month when Suspended". Just checked that the calculation for us-east returns USD 57.40. Note that this is just a forecast based on the publicly available AWS prices and not a commitment that you'll see the same numbers in your bill.

    Best regards,
