Amazon Web Services (AWS) and SAP have developed a close collaborative alliance dedicated to creating innovative solutions for businesses of all sizes and to delivering maximum customer value.
New and existing SAP customers can deploy their SAP solutions on SAP certified Amazon EC2 instances in production environments knowing that SAP and AWS have tested the performance of the underlying AWS resources, verified their performance, and certified them against the same standards that apply to servers and virtual platforms.
Customers now have the flexibility to deploy their SAP solutions and landscapes on the scalable, on-demand AWS platform without making required long-term commitments or costly capital expenditures for their underlying infrastructure. The AWS pay-per-use model enables customers to pay only for the resources used, which results in lower costs, increased efficiencies, and faster time to market.
