Thinking about running your SAP installation on Amazon Web Services?

ISB Global_SAP-on-AWS-Overview

If you are thinking about running your SAP installation on Amazon Web Services, take a read of this short but comprehensive overview.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides on-demand computing resources and services in the cloud, with pay-as-you-go pricing. You can run a server on AWS and log in, configure, secure, and operate it just as you would operate a server in your own data center.

Using AWS resources for your compute needs is like purchasing electricity from a power company instead of running your own generator, and it provides many of the same benefits:

  •  The capacity you get exactly matches your needs.
  •  You pay only for what you use.
  •  Economies of scale result in lower costs.
  •  The service is provided by a vendor who is experienced in running large-scale compute and network systems
