Small businesses can now access all the benefits of the SAP Business One solution on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud without needing to make long-term commitments or costly capital expenditures for the required IT infrastructure.

AWS and SAP have worked together to test and certify the SAP Business One solution on the AWS cloud. Both SAP Business One, version for Microsoft SQL Server and SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA have been certified on the AWS cloud platform.

For a detailed overview of the benefits and options for running SAP Business One on AWS see the SAP Business One on AWS Overview Guide

Lower TCO - The AWS cloud offers a reliable and secure SAP-certified cloud platform that enables businesses to quickly deploy SAP solutions and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of running SAP systems by up to 71%, compared to traditional on-premises infrastructure. To learn more, read the full TCO study.

OpEx instead of CapEx  - Replace the fixed capital expense for IT hardware with variable operational expense.

Speed and agility - With AWS, you don’t need to wait days, weeks, or even months for capital to be approved and infrastructure to be procured and provisioned. You can deploy the infrastructure needed to support a complete SAP Business One environment quickly and easily on the AWS cloud.

Elasticity and flexible capacity - Eliminate guesswork on your infrastructure capacity needs by provisioning only the amount of resources required. Scale resources up or down as needed, and leverage on-demand access to virtually unlimited compute, storage, and network capacity to meet your SAP sizing needs.
