You will learn

During this tutorial, you will learn how to create a solution instance of SAP Data Hub, trial edition. SAP Data Hub, trial edition is provisioned via SAP Cloud Appliance Library. It runs in your account on Cloud Providers that you choose from GCP, AWS or Azure. Please note here in this tutorial GCP refers to Google Cloud platform, AWS refers to Amazon Web Services and Azure refers to Microsoft Azure.


Step 1: Create Cloud Account or Project

Running SAP Data Hub, trial edition requires you to have access to an Amazon Web Services account, a Google Cloud Platform project or an Azure Subscription.

If you do not yet have an account on Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services or Azure, then create one.

For Google Cloud Platform create a corresponding Google Cloud Platform project. Moreover you also need a so-called service account which is used by SAP Cloud Appliance Library while accessing Google Cloud Platform. You find more information about projects and service accounts in the Google Cloud Platform documentation.

For Amazon Web Services you need to get access to AWS Management Console for the Amazon Web Services account under certain ID. After getting access you need to also have Access Key and Secret Key as a basis to connect from CAL to AWS backend and spin up the SAP Data Hub 2.4 instance

For Microsoft Azure you need to create a corresponding Azure subscription using your Microsoft Azure account. And then using the Subscription ID provided to connect CAL from Azure.

The necessary policies for Amazon Web Services account, Google Cloud Platform roles for the service account and Microsoft Azure account are described in the Getting Started with SAP Data Hub, trial edition guide (chapter 2.1).

For Google Cloud Platform, you need to enable certain APIs which are also described in the Getting Started with SAP Data Hub, trial edition guide (chapter 2.1).
