Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers a secure, scalable, global, and low-cost cloud computing platform to give your customers a responsive, low-latency SAP Commerce web experience. AWS provides the core infrastructure services like compute, storage, load balancing, content delivery, monitoring, and managed database services, enabling you to rapidly deploy and efficiently manage your SAP Commerce environment in the AWS Cloud.

Speed and Agility - Provision infrastructure for a complete production ready SAP Commerce environment in hours vs. weeks to months.

Scale infrastructure resources – Amazon EC2 enables you to increase or decrease capacity within minutes, not hours or days. Since AWS is all controlled with web service APIs, your SAP Commerce environment can automatically scale itself up and down depending on its needs.

Achieve a higher level of availability – AWS’s multiple Availability Zones offer you the ability to operate your SAP Commerce environment in a more highly available, fault tolerant and scalable architecture than would be possible from a single data center.

Reduce cost - Without required minimum commitments or long-term contracts you can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own. Our economies of scale translate into lower pay as you go prices for our customers.

Improve customer experience - Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN) that can be used to deliver your entire website, including dynamic, static, and streaming content using a global network of edge locations. Requests for your content are automatically routed to the nearest edge location, so your customers are never delayed by high latency.

Reduce database management and license cost - Amazon Aurora is a fully managed, high performance, secure, and durable database service.  It provides up to five times better performance than MySQL at one tenth the cost of a commercial database.

Amazon Aurora is a MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database engine that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. It provides up to five times better performance than MySQL with the security, availability, and reliability of a commercial database at one tenth the cost.

Amazon Aurora is a managed database service, built on a fully distributed and self-healing storage system that keeps your data safe. It provides enterprise-level capabilities including database monitoring, database cloning, cross-region copying and replication, AWS Identity and Access Management integration, and much more. 

AWS has worked closely with SAP to test a certify Amazon Aurora for SAP Commerce. To see which versions of SAP Commerce that Amazon Aurora is certified for, see the SAP Commerce documentation (SAP S-User ID required for access).
