Benefits of running SAP on AWS

As organizations look to modernize their infrastructure for high availability, reliability, and cost-effectiveness, running SAP on AWS makes smart business sense. Some benefits of migrating your SAP workloads to AWS include:

  • Cost savings. AWS pricing is based on usage for most compute services. Similar to the monthly utility bill for your home, you only pay for what you use.
  • Robust infrastructure. AWS is the cloud provider par excellence when it comes to global infrastructure. With multiple availability zones around the world for high availability and edge locations to ensure low latency, no other cloud provider comes close to offering a more advanced IT infrastructure.
  • Automated deployment. Get access to innovative compute services like AWS CodeDeploy to automate software deployments for fast, secure software updates.
  • Increased security posture. Under the AWS shared responsibility model, AWS handles security of the cloud, freeing you up to focus exclusively on security in the cloud.
  • Rapid scalability. No more manually provisioning servers to handle traffic fluctuations. Core AWS compute services like Amazon EC2 and AWS Lambda offer auto scaling so you can stop worrying about managing servers.
  • SAP S/4HANA on AWS. Whether you need to convert from SAP ERP to S/4HANA or you want to deploy S/4HANA in the cloud from scratch, the AWS cloud is SAP-certified to run S/4HANA, with dedicated instances built to run large in-memory databases.

Well-Architected by design

Your free discovery and landscape assessment analyzes your workloads to follow the AWS Well-Architected Framework — the official set of best practices from AWS for excellency in cloud architecture. The Well-Architected Framework consists of six pillars that guide our analysis to ensure your SAP system is optimized to run on the AWS cloud.

  • Operational Excellence. Running and managing systems to enhance value and improve business processes by anticipating failure, deploying small, reversible changes, and learning from failure.
  • Security. We encrypt all data in transit and at rest, working on a least privileged access model and automating security tasks to minimize the potential for human error in manual processes.
  • Reliability. We follow best practices for boosting resilience, like scaling horizontally, recovering from failure automatically, and reducing idle resources.
  • Performance Efficiency. Optimization of compute resources for current and future states.
  • Cost Optimization. We use consumption-based pricing where available, selecting only the right resources for the job and carefully monitoring spending using tools like Amazon CloudWatch.
  • Sustainability. For some people, data centers can seem out-of-sight, out-of-mind, but they have a real impact on the environment. We architect for minimal environmental impact from running workloads.
