Connecting a Jedox Cloud Environment to On-Premises SAP Systems

Jedox Cloud uses third-party “public” cloud infrastructure providers, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and ProfitBricks.
 
Your cloud environment will be connected via Virtual Private Gateway on the Jedox Cloud side to a VPN gateway on your corporate side. The list of protocols needed to be supported by gateway on your side can be found here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonVPC/latest/NetworkAdminGuide/vpc-nag.pdf#CGRequirements
 
Some of the devices officially tested by AWS can be seen here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonVPC/latest/NetworkAdminGuide/vpc-nag.pdf#DevicesTested  This is the recommended way of doing things when using AWS. AWS also supports AWS Direct Connect, i.e. “stretching cable from your office to AWS”.
 
Once a VPN connection between Jedox Cloud and an on-premises data center is established, the internal SAP system must be reachable for the outside system. The following SAP document lists ports that are required to be open/accessible on the SAP side from an external—in this case Jedox—system: https://help.sap.com/viewer/ports  In our case, “External Ports” and the first 3 entries are relevant.
