As of March 11 2015, SAP has certified support for SAP NetWeaver-based applications on Microsoft SQL Server 2014.  Now you can run even more of your Tier-1, mission-critical workloads on SQL Server.  And, the ability to run SAP on Microsoft Azure means that it can be accomplished with low total cost of ownership (TCO).

[…] With SAP’s certification, you can also run SAP in Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines with SQL Server 2014. Azure enables SAP customers to reduce TCO by leveraging Microsoft infrastructure as system needs grow, rather than investing in additional servers and storage. With Microsoft Azure, customers can leverage development and test environments in the cloud that can be spun up and scaled out as needed. SQL Server 2014 also introduced Disaster Recovery to Azure using an asynchronous AlwaysOn secondary, which can make Azure a part of your SAP disaster recovery plan.
