SAP on AWS Pilot

Your SAP systems are the heart of your business processes. Therefore, it is even more important to operate them in a stable and secure manner. Amazon Web Services has repeatedly proven that it offers the best platform for SAP workloads. We help you take your first steps in the AWS Cloud and set up a production-ready pilot environment for you.

In a traditional environment, the setup of a pilot environment is associated with relatively high setup costs.

Thanks to the complete virtualization of the AWS cloud and various automation tools, we can provide you with a fully-fledged SAP system with root rights within a few days.

The pilot project includes:

  • Basic SAP on AWS training
  • Setup of an secured AWS pilot environment in your account according to best practices
  • Deployment of a fresh SAP pilot system with standard configuration
  • Demonstration of the automation possibilities of the AWS Cloud

  • On request: Support for data migration and secure network connection to your existing system landscape
  • On request: Analysis of your existing system landscape and preparation of an initial cost calculation

After the end of the pilot project, we will be happy to support you in expanding the environment to a test or productive system.

SAP on AWS Quick Facts:

  • All your data and servers remain completely isolated in a partitioned network area called Virtual Private Cloud. A secure connection to your corporate network is of course possible.

  • You can provision HANA database servers with up to 24 TB of memory within minutes.

  • In the AWS Cloud, you only pay for services you actually use. For powered down servers, you only incur disk charges. For always-on servers, you can save up to 60% by opting for reserved instances.

  • The greatest potential of the AWS cloud lies in its integration with so-called value-added services, such as machine learning or data analytics. These can be integrated into existing business processes and give you the edge.

  • Access control: Use SSO or create individual IAM users and assign them to groups.
