Customers are using Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure to more quickly and cost effectively deploy Microsoft SharePoint. To show you how, we have developed the Microsoft SharePoint on AWS Reference Architecture White Paper, which discusses general concepts regarding how to run SharePoint on AWS and provides detailed technical guidance on how to configure, deploy, and run a SharePoint Server farm on AWS. It illustrates common reference architecture for SharePoint Server deployment scenarios and discusses their network, security, and deployment configurations so you can run SharePoint Server workloads in the cloud with confidence.

This white paper is targeted to IT infrastructure decision-makers and administrators. After reading it, a customer should have a good idea on how to set up and deploy the components of a typical SharePoint Server farm on AWS.

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 SharePoint Server licenses to AWS without paying additional Microsoft licensing fees. Learn more at
