Amazon EC2 running Windows Server is a secure and dependable environment for customers to deploy Microsoft SharePoint quickly and cost effectively. The Microsoft License Mobility through Software Assurance program allows Microsoft volume license customers to use their existing Windows Server applications licenses, including SharePoint Server, on AWS without paying any additional Microsoft licensing fees. Take advantage of the benefits that the AWS Cloud offers such as pay-as-you-go pricing, scalability, and data integrity to run your SharePoint workloads today.
The Get Started section below has more detail about all of the available technologies and resources for Microsoft on AWS, including pricing, documentation, whitepapers, templates and sample code. If you have questions about SharePoint on AWS please visit the FAQ page for more info.
Running SharePoint on the AWS Cloud allows you to add capacity as needed, without long lead time. You can easily scale up, or down, as business demands change. Stay ahead of the curve by adjusting capacity in minutes and hours, not days or weeks.
AWS offers low, pay-as-you-go pricing, which eliminates hardware acquisition costs and allows you to pay only for the capacity you need. We do all of the hardware management, so you can focus on higher-value activities than replacing hard drives.
While reducing both. You no longer need to plan, procure, manage, and depreciate your IT infrastructure. You can replace large up-front expenses with more predictable costs that scale with your business.
Leverage your existing investments in IT skills and software assets, enabling your company to roll out new applications more quickly. The AWS platform is OS and language agnostic, so developers can continue to use .NET and familiar tools such as Visual Studio.
The Microsoft License Mobility through Software Assurance program allows Microsoft volume licensing customers to move their current on-premises Microsoft Exchange Server licenses to AWS without paying additional Microsoft licensing fees.
