SAP Cloud Appliance Library offers the easiest and fastest way to consume the latest SAP
solutions in the cloud. It is an online repository of ready-to-use SAP solutions that you
can instantly deploy into your own cloud accounts to kick-start your SAP projects. These
solutions are economical and efficient for testing, training, showing demonstrations to
customers, and so on.

authorizations to use them.

If you are not using your instance, you can suspend it to reduce your
costs. When you suspend a solution instance, the cloud provider does not release
the resources associated with that instance. For more information, see
Suspending a Solution Instance.
If you no longer need
the solution instance, you can terminate it. No further cloud provider costs will
be generated. However, the data associated with the instance is lost irrevocably
when the instance is terminated. For more information, see
Terminating a Solution Instance. To save the data, suspend the
instance instead of terminating it.
You can check the cost forecast for the
cloud provider infrastructure while you are using the solution instance. To do so,
Create Instance for a solution and in the wizard,
configure a sample scheduling of your usage. A cost forecast is displayed on the
right side of the wizard. This forecast is valid for the selected cloud provider.
If the solution instance has already been created, you can check the cost forecast
in the instance details header.
You can define a daily and weekly scheduling
as well as a termination date for the instance. The system automatically
calculates the cost forecast for the instance depending on the selected region,
virtual machine sizes, and schedule configuration.
