SAP Migration to AWS Cloud

Optimize SAP system landscape for cloud operations with AWS cloud

Benefits of SAP Migration from Other Platforms to AWS

By migrating your SAP landscape to the AWS cloud, you can achieve increased performance and scalability with improved cost control. With the right cloud foundation, you can develop resources faster, transform economics, and provide flexible scalability that adapts to changes in demand.


Trusted and secure infrastructure

Leverage AWS's globally recognized infrastructure, ranked as a leader in SAP HANA services by ISG for the fifth consecutive year. SAP's cloud solutions are supported by AWS’s comprehensive range of cloud security tools with over 300 security, compliance, and governance services and features, as well as support for 143 security standards and compliance certifications.

Improved backups and recovery

AWS provides robust backup and recovery solutions such as Amazon EBS Snapshots and AWS Backup. Stringent security, governance, and compliance requirements for SAP workloads allow for efficient and reliable data protection strategies. With features like automated snapshots and flexible recovery options, organizations can ensure data integrity and minimize downtime in case of system failures or data loss incidents.

Enhanced SLAs

AWS offers Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that guarantee high availability, reliability, and performance of cloud services, including VMs hosting SAP applications. By leveraging AWS's globally distributed infrastructure and industry-leading uptime, organizations can meet stringent SLA requirements and ensure business continuity for critical SAP workloads.

Cost savings

Achieve cost savings through flexible scalability, usage-based pricing, and reduced management efforts with AWS. Case in point, Syngenta reduced the total cost of ownership (TCO) of SAP applications by 28% after migrating to AWS.

Streamlined VM management

AWS provides tools like Amazon EC2 and AWS Systems Manager that simplify managing and monitoring virtual machines (VMs) that run SAP applications. With automated provisioning, scaling, and patch management features, organizations can optimize resource utilization, improve operational efficiency, and reduce administrative overhead associated with managing SAP VMs in the cloud.
