I am proud to announce that beginning with SAP HANA 2.0 SPS 02, HANA dynamic tiering is now supported on Amazon AWS.  Amazon recently engaged in a close partnership with SAP to validate dynamic tiering in their cloud.  They installed dynamic tiering in a “dedicated host” configuration (HANA and dynamic tiering running on separate virtual machines), and executed a battery of tests involving data loads, queries, backups, and administration and monitoring operations to ensure complete functional correctness of a HANA dynamic tiering on AWS.  In addition, Amazon followed the dynamic tiering sizing guidelines, and measured storage and network throughput to ensure that AWS could deliver a properly performing system in the cloud.

Support of HANA dynamic tiering on AWS now gives our HANA dynamic tiering customers additional flexibility with a popular cloud deployment option.

See this SAP Note with details on the validation process, and an official recognition of Amazon AWS as a supported platform for HANA dynamic tiering:
