The market for Cloud Services has grown tremendously in recent years; many enterprises started thinking ‘when to migrate their SAP landscape into Cloud Services.’ However, the main topic of discussion among the stakeholders is ‘how to migrate current complex SAP landscape into Cloud Services.’
Let us see how Cloud Comrade expertise can help its customers to migrate SAP Workloads into AWS
Before that let’s have a close look at the benefits of Migrating the Workloads into Cloud over Traditional Workload Migration
Traditional Migration Processes- Manual
- Assessing the Infrastructure
- Cost Estimation
- Proof of Concept
Conventionally, it’s challenging for any managed service providers to get 100% visibility of workloads in the infrastructure. Many technologies are outdated and unsupported by phones or tablets which results in a lack of future technical support. The old interface or legacy software could pose a significant security threat, downtime that will affect business productivity and efficiency.
Hence it’s a viable solution for organizations to consider migrating workloads (SAP) into cloud AWS. Like we all know the five R’s involved in the migration to cloud – Rehost, Refactor, Revise, Rebuild or Replace, we can choose based on the necessity.
Migrating SAP Workloads into AWS – Automated:
AWS has been an SAP Global Technology partner since 2011. AWS and SAP have partnered closely in coming up with various services to make fast and efficient deployment of SAP Workloads on AWS for lower costs, innovation, and simplified infrastructure management. With AWS Server Migration Service (SMS), we can migrate on-premises SAP workloads into AWS Cloud quickly and efficiently.
One of the critical benefits migrating SAP Workloads into AWS is the scalability, without worrying about how to accommodate the business growth. The ease of spin up/down/change the configurations.
After the workloads assessment, the service provider should know if there is a need for private/public or hybrid cloud migration. For example, there could be existing legacy systems at its performance limit that limits the SAP upgrades, then its advisable to have a private cloud migration which will help the clients to avoid additional hardware investment and achieve scalability.
Planning and choosing the right service partner is critical. Its critical for the service provider to have a proper understanding of migrating strategy as most of the decision makers struggle in understanding which applications to rehost, as some might require refactoring as well.
