Next thursday March 21st, we're organizing the webinar SAP on AWS. Clearing the path for a successful migration, where you'll discover how to plan and execute the migration of SAP Business Suite workloads to AWS.
We will walk over the different source scenarios depending on OS/DB platform, database size, available downtime window and connection bandwidth with AWS, we will talk about the impact of each variable on the overall migration project and combine all together to shape the right
migration strategy to AWS.
Main benefits of SAP on AWS
SAP and AWS have been in collaboration since 2011. In the past couple of years, Amazon and SAP have worked together to provide fast and effective memory deployment options. SAP users can now run their workloads on the web cloud service offered by Amazon. The following are the benefits of SAP Business Suite on Amazon Web Services to the users.
1. Economies of scale
The main aim of a business is to get the most out of any resource while minimizing costs. A lot of businesses that run SAP systems have shifted their workloads and started using SAP on Amazon Web Services. The main reason for this is that companies get to enjoy more economies of scale from AWS features together with efficiency. This saves on the company’s cost and also maximizes its overall benefit.
2. Highly compatible
A company does not need to change its server because Amazon Web Services cloud support various types of servers where the SAP solutions can be installed and run. The servers that are supported are:
- Oracle Linux
- Windows Server 2008 R2
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
SAP on AWS also facilitates the running of various databases like Microsoft SQL and SAP HANA. With this compatibility benefit, a company saves big since it doesn’t have to overhaul its IT infrastructure.
3. Scalability and Elasticity
SAP configurations on AWS are available in several options. A user can now use SAP on Amazon Web Services without any worry about the memory capacity of the service.
This feature has enabled SAP users to choose the amount of memory that they desire to use. A user can choose to start with a small memory capacity and upgrade progressively to a higher capacity when the time comes. The process of scaling up and down takes only minutes to accomplish.
4. Security and Virtual Networking
Sometimes, cloud computing hasn't been associated with safety. That's not true with Amazon Web Services. They have managed to change that through the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
The VPC of Amazon enables you to define a private virtual network within an isolated area within the Amazon Web Services cloud. This allows a company link with their data centers, forming a private network but with the added benefits of Amazon Web Services infrastructure.
5. Performance and speed
The Amazon Web Services have developed several varieties of the elastic compute cloud (EC2) that are specialized to meet specific workload demands. The EC2 runs on the latest 64-bit Intel processor, while also operating at a high throughput and low latency, using the Amazon Network Adapter which facilitates the transmission of various data volumes that may be either encrypted or unencrypted.
Therefore, for a business using SAP Business Suite the promise of speed, excellent performance and reliability are all available to you, and these are the core factors that a business depends on.
6. Backup data
In the modern day, all information needs to be backed up. Amazon Web Services keeps all relevant user data in the cloud and therefore provides a suitable backup for your data at no extra cost.
