Whereas the General Support Statement for Virtual Environments is valid for almost all SAP applications that run in a virtual or in a private cloud environment, the support of SAP applications in a public cloud environment is more restrictive.

SAP Support in Public Cloud Environments
In an IaaS environment, the General Support Statement for Virtual Environments does not apply and therefore the supported SAP applications in these environments rely on the supported cloud service providers and their IaaS offerings.
For more information about the supported cloud service providers, SAP Applications, VM instance types, operating system and database versions supported in public cloud (IaaS) environments, see Support of SAP Applications, Operating Systems and Databases in Public Cloud (IaaS) Environments.
