Amazon Web Services - Advantages

Amazon EC2

With AWS EC2 instances, it is a breeze to deploy SAP instance(s) on adhoc basis

  • to do any POC (Proof of Concept)
  • try any third party bolt-on application with SAP
  • provide a sandbox to the Basis team to try Support pack upgrade
  • install SAP Enhancement pack to let Business users evaluate new functionality in SAP
  • take instant snapshot of AWS Instance and save the image as a backup
  • Incremental snapshots can also be taken as often as required to store delta changes on the servers
  • host servers for SAP training at different geographical locations around the world to conduct training for employees, with improved speed and performance
  • easily refresh SAP instances soon after the training class is over and get ready for next training schedule almost instantaneously by restoring the image
  • Servers can be either hosted in the public domain with public IP addresses, or in your own farm in VPC (virtual private cloud) using internal IP addresses without any access to general public, for privacy and security reasons

  • Large volumes of data/files can be easily stored on AWS-S3 Volumes on pay-per-use basis
