SAP and Amazon Web Services
Amazon Web Services (AWS) can help ease and accelerate your digital transformation.
SAP and AWS have collaborated since 2011 to certify AWS for production deployments of SAP applications, platforms, and databases. Accelerate time-to-value, improve operational and cost efficiencies, and operate more securely than on-premises. AWS offers the broadest and deepest set of native cloud services, spanning traditional services like compute, storage, and databases, as well as emerging technologies like IoT and machine learning on top of a reliable global infrastructure.
These services are continuously updated and improved upon, and AWS is regularly adding new services based on customer feedback. This extensive set of services and rapid pace of innovation has helped thousands of customers to reduce costs and derive new value from their SAP environment.
