Epic on AWS

Epic customers can leverage AWS services to upgrade their security posture, provide elasticity to scale on-demand, improve disaster recovery and business continuity, and increase operational performance system wide. By migrating Epic 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

Migrating Epic workloads to the cloud enables customers to focus on improving care quality and outcomes for the patients and communities they serve by utilizing the complementary AWS services that enhance clinician, patient, and employee experiences.

Cost savings

AWS customers can reduce their operating costs by auto-scaling infrastructure resources based upon demand rather than designing and running for peak demand at all times, removing the guesswork of over-or under-provisioning infrastructure.

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 with unprecedented levels of scalability, reliability, and agility. 

Increased performance and uptime

Leveraging the elasticity of AWS accommodates changing user demands with little to no downtime without the lock-in of traditional on-premises infrastructure. Customers can reduce unplanned downtime using automation and orchestration to manage workloads.

Fast Epic releases for end user innovation

Epic quarterly releases can be deployed faster, and infrastructure can be easily right sized for yearly growth. Traditional IT tasks can be automated by 50% to free up resources to focus on differentiating activities.
