AWS can help you rapidly deploy and scale your Microsoft SharePoint environment to help you collaborate more efficiently and cost-effectively. You can quickly deploy a custom web application or scale up to a global collaboration site and optimize costs with a pay-as-you-go approach. Customers find significant TCO savings by running SharePoint on AWS over an on-premises solution.
What you'll accomplish:
Automatically deploy Microsoft SharePoint Server 2016 using the AWS CloudFormation template.
Build a highly available and fault-tolerable SharePoint collaboration farm in multiple locations throughout the world (known as Availability Zones).
Operate an enterprise-grade deployment that supports 20,000 users globally.
Build a foundation that you can customize for various use cases - for example, workflow collaboration, content management and compliance, team sites, external sharing, and enterprise search.
What you'll need before starting:
An AWS account: You will need an AWS account to begin provisioning resources to host your website. Sign up for AWS.
SharePoint experience: You should have some experience managing a Microsoft SharePoint deployment.
AWS experience: While this implementation requires no previous experience with AWS, it is helpful to have some basic knowledge of AWS services.
Estimating your costs:
The total cost of running your Microsoft SharePoint deployment on AWS will vary depending on your needs and configuration. The default configuration for this project represents an average of 40% savings over the typical cost to deploy an on-premises SharePoint solution. For more details, see Services Used and Costs.
