Why Choose AWS For Your On Premise SAP S/4HANA?

Business leaders want to execute their SAP S/4HANA on AWS deployment as efficiently and non-disruptively as possible.

SAP applications are mission-critical and deeply intertwined with core business processes. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the most proven cloud for SAP workloads, including SAP S/4HANA.

Here are some of the many benefits of deploying SAP S/4HANA on AWS:
  • High Return On Investment Low Total Cost of Ownership
  • Replace CapEX with OpEx
  • Ensure Speed and Agility
  • Eliminate Guesswork with Flexible & Scalable AWS
  • Scalability
  • Pave the Path for Secure Business Data
  • Seamless Remote Access
Now let us dive deeper into understanding the deployment, security protocols, network connectivity, backup & recovery on AWS.

SAP S/4HANA Deployment on AWS

SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition can be easily deployed on the AWS Cloud using the standard SAP S/4HANA installation process. AWS provides innovative deployment options for the HANA components of an SAP S/4HANA system that can greatly reduce the effort and time to deploy a new environment.

Security Protocols

The AWS Cloud provides a scalable, highly reliable platform that helps enable customers to deploy SAP S/4HANA solution & data quickly & securely.

Reduce your operational burden as AWS operates, manages and controls the components from the host operating system and virtualization layer down to the physical security of the facilities in which the services operate.

In turn, you assume responsibility and management of the guest operating system (including updates and security patches), other associated application software such as SAP HANA, as well as the configuration of the AWS-provided security group firewall.

Network Connectivity

With AWS, you have multiple options to provide connectivity between your SAP S/4HANA environment on AWS and your users, on-premises systems and external systems. The basis for network security and connectivity on AWS is the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).

Amazon VPC enables you to provision a logically isolated section of the AWS Cloud where you can launch AWS resources in a virtual network that you define. You have complete control over your virtual networking environment including-
  • Selection of your own IP address range
  • Creation of subnets
  • Configuration of route tables and network gateways

Backup & Recovery

AWS provides you with the infrastructure building blocks to create a highly durable and secure backup and recovery SAP S/4HANA solution to protect your valuable data. Backup and recovery on AWS use many of the same concepts, methods and tools used to back up SAP systems on traditional on-premises infrastructure.

The primary difference with backup and recovery on AWS is the media and location used to store backups. On AWS, backups are stored in Amazon S3 and automatically stored “offsite,” outside the Availability Zone of the system, because data in Amazon S3 is replicated across multiple facilities within the AWS Region. If the primary Availability Zone fails, the backup can immediately be used to restore data to any of the other Availability Zones within the Region.
