Epic on AWS

Epic customers can leverage AWS services to automate manual security tasks, inheriting comprehensive security and compliance controls in the AWS cloud. By migrating workloads to AWS, organizations can focus less on data center management and more on improving the quality of care and outcomes for the patients and communities they serve.

Benefits of deploying Epic on AWS

Cost savings

AWS customers can reduce their operating costs by leveraging the elasticity of the cloud. Training environments can be deployed on-demand and terminated upon course completion to minimize resource use.

Modular / hybrid designs

AWS works closely with Epic to validate and continue to optimize Epic environments on AWS to strive for the best customer experience.

On-demand cloud resources

Leverage the elasticity of the AWS cloud, deploying resources when required and terminating use and cost as applicable.

Resize infrastructure quickly

Infrastructure can be easily right sized for growth, with underlying compute and storage upgraded in minutes to meet your organization’s demands. Traditional IT tasks can be automated to free up resources to focus on differentiating activities.
