Migrate so you can modernize faster
Migrating from older on-premises environments to the modern cloud represents a unique opportunity to advance not just the efficiency of application infrastructures, but of the business itself. From liberating IT resources to enabling greater agility, the value of running applications in the cloud is too compelling to ignore.
Migrating your applications is just the beginning

Rethinking application performance
Get the most out of your enterprise applications
SAP, Oracle, and Windows SQL Server applications are at the core of today’s mission-critical enterprise operations. Maintaining the performance and availability of these applications within on-premises infrastructures is time-consuming and expensive, particularly with new software releases and rapid changes in user demand. Check out the Workload Migration Evaluator to learn the advantages of migrating your applications from an on-premises environment to AWS.
Windows on AWS
Customers have been running Windows workloads on AWS for over a decade, helping them reduce costs by right-sizing compute and storage, and simplifying license use. We run nearly 2x more Windows Server instances than the next largest cloud provider, according to an IDC report. Our experience running Windows applications has earned our customers’ trust and the number of AWS enterprise customers using Amazon EC2 for Windows Server has grown 5x since 2015.
SAP on AWS
By running their SAP application workloads on AWS, thousands of companies are moving more rapidly and operating more securely, all while optimizing the performance and value of their SAP investments. AWS helps improve operational and cost efficiencies, while eliminating the barriers to successfully integrating your SAP workloads with emerging technologies.
Oracle on AWS
For Oracle customers, including those running RAC workloads, AWS enables IT and Ops teams to leverage existing skills while protecting technology investments. Quickly, confidently scale capacity (up or down) without change or friction as you enable virtualized, low-latency workloads with access to native AWS services.
The performance of AWS, powered by Intel
When AWS customers require breakthrough speed and capabilities from their applications, they rely on the industry leading performance of Intel Xeon Scalable processors. The powerful combination of Intel-based hardware and AWS-enabled software provides for significantly improved performance from less power, easier compliance, and a dramatic reduction in total cost of ownership.
Application migration in the real world
Transforming Windows workloads
Hess Corporation, a leading global independent energy company, identified a need to streamline its business. The company looked to move the majority of their mission critical Windows workloads, including SQL Server, Exchange, AD and custom .NET apps, as well as SAP HANA and Oracle Hyperion, to AWS to increase availability and reduce technical debt. Hess was able to leverage a hybrid-approach, while reporting higher availability, improved performance, and agility.
Enabling a Hero in the delivery space
The online food marketplace, Delivery Hero, processes every global order through its core SAP system, so even planned downtime equates to lost revenue. Explore how a coordinated effort made it possible to migrate that on-premises environment to 18 SAP systems running on AWS—all while limiting migration downtime to just four hours.
Achieving Operational Efficiency at Scale
Unilever North America needed to re-design its infrastructure to support Unilever’s digital marketing approach. The Unilever IT team had two goals for their cloud migration: deliver a common technology platform for websites with regional content delivery architecture, and migrate existing web properties to the cloud. By moving to AWS, Unilever was able to improve business agility and operational efficiency.
Improving Application Performance and Availability
Thomas Publishing Company needed an efficient, cost-effective way to increase the performance and availability of its applications and database technologies. Moving to AWS, the company was able to shut-down its largest data center, eliminating hundreds of thousands of dollars in associated costs. Developers can now spin-up resources for a new website in a single day, enabling the company to publish significantly faster and meet customer needs more easily.
