SAP on AWS
01 - The challenge
SAP systems play a key role in the everyday processes of many companies worldwide. They require special hardware and extremely high availability being business-critical systems. With the introduction of the SAP HANA database and the retirement of SAP support for alternative databases, it will be essential for hundreds of companies to switch platforms in the next 5-10 years. However, this can be a risky project in a traditional environment because of the magnitude of hardware estimation, acquisition, and lifecycle tracking.
02 - The solution
AWS, being the very first SAP strategic partner for Public Cloud, delivers robust and reliable solutions for a variety of SAP-certified system specifications. Because over a 5-10 year lifecycle AWS continuously upgrades hardware under its platform, and the elastic nature of scaling virtual machines, the total cost of ownership (TCO) of building and operating an SAP platform is well below the traditional solutions overall costs.
TC2 engineers, with the involvement of AWS and SAP colleagues, assist in the development of the SAP migration and system plan, the implementation of the migration process, and its long-term operation.

The cloud is the engine of today’s innovation, the foundation of the digital transformation. In many cases complex interconnected systems need to be migrated to the cloud which can raise a number of issues. The architecture and life cycle of traditional applications as well as the associated cost models and operational processes in the cloud may require optimization and redesign.
Cloud optimization (DevOps)
With the move to the cloud, the development and maintenance processes and habits also change, and efficiency gains a new meaning. The size and type of companies also determine what efficiency goals arise, and these can be achieved by DevOps, ie a set of infrastructure and application development tasks.
Support and Operation services
The project never ends with implementation. Operation, system availability, operational support, and ongoing improvements and modifications during operation make the picture complete and the system or application truly usable.
