Windows on AWS: better together

Here are some of the benefits organizations can realize by migrating their Windows workloads to AWS: 

  • Robust security. The AWS cloud runs some of the strictest physical and digital security standards in the world, for both its data centers and networks. This frees you from managing the security of on-premises data centers to focus on better security of your systems.

  • Scalability. Stop worrying about managing servers. AWS compute services like EC2 and Lambda feature out-of-the-box autoscaling. Additional services like Elastic Load Balancing automatically distribute traffic across instances, containers, and IP addresses to reduce the risk of outages.

  • Cost savings. With AWS, you only pay for what you use. Explore other pricing options like savings plans, reserved instances, and dedicated hosts to lower your TCO.

  • Access to advanced AWS services. AWS offers fully managed services for native-Windows file systems and for Kubernetes on Windows. Gain access to additional services like SQL Server on EC2, RDS for SQL Server, Amazon FSx for Windows File Server, and AWS License Manager.
