SAP NetWeaver and the SAP business application solutions are certified by SAP to run on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) with the operating systems and GCP infrastructure that are listed on this page.
SAP lists the certified SAP applications and database management systems in SAP Note 2456432.
Certified SAP applications on GCP
The following table lists the SAP application solutions that are certified to run on GCP, as well as the operating systems and the Compute Engine VM families that they are certified to run with.
For SAP application solutions that use SAP HANA, such as S/4HANA or BW/4HANA, the VM support requirements for SAP HANA apply if SAP HANA is installed on the same VM as the application system.
For a detailed list of the certified VM types, including their SAPS numbers, see the following section, Certified Compute Engine machine types.
For more information about the supported operating systems, see Operating system support for SAP NetWeaver on GCP.

Certified Compute Engine machine types
You can use any of the following general-purpose, compute-optimized, or custom machine types for SAP NetWeaver workloads.
The SAPS numbers for each machine type in the following sections are calculated using the minimum CPU platform that SAP certifies the machine type to use. The numbers listed here are for general reference only. For the SAPS numbers that are formally certified by SAP, see SAP Note 2456432.
Predefined machine types have a fixed set of resources. To define your own machine type, see Custom machine types.
For more information about all of the available Compute Engine machine types, see Machine types.
Compute-optimized machine types
The compute-optimized c2-standard machine types that are certified for SAP applications are optimized for compute-intensive workloads. Compute-optimized machine types have a higher CPU thread speed, improved single threaded processing, and higher SAPS per core.
The c2-standard machine types offer the highest performance per core on Compute Engine. Built on Intel Cascade Lake, the latest generation Intel scalable processors, the c2-standard machine types offer up to 3.1 Ghz base frequency, and 3.8 Ghz all-core-turbo.
|Compute-optimized machines||vCPUs||Memory (GB)||Minimum CPU platform||SAPS|
||4||16||Intel Cascade Lake||5,189|
||8||32||Intel Cascade Lake||10,750|
||16||64||Intel Cascade Lake||20,731|
||30||120||Intel Cascade Lake||36,405|
||60||240||Intel Cascade Lake||70,683|
General-purpose machine types
The n1-standard machine types are suitable for tasks that have a balance of CPU and memory needs. Standard machine types have 3.75 GB of memory per vCPU.
n1 series of machine types,
a vCPU is implemented as a single hardware hyper-thread on one of the
available CPU Platforms.
|General-purpose machines||vCPUs||Memory (GB)||Minimum CPU platform||SAPS|

|High-memory, general-purpose machine types|
Custom machine types
Custom machine types of up to 96 vCPU and either 3.75 or 6.5 GB per vCPU allow you to tailor the size of your Compute Engine VM to your workload.
Custom machine types need to be evaluated by SAP before SAP will support them. Because the capacity (SAPS) of a custom machine configuration is not predetermined, SAP cannot guarantee that a configured custom machine will be suitable to run Business Suite workloads without first reviewing the configuration.
Open an SAP support ticket against SAP component
BC-OP-NT-GOOGLE to indicate your interest in a custom VM for an SAP
deployment. The SAP/Google platform team will review your configuration to
confirm it meets SAP supportability requirements.
