  • How it works
  • As one of the first organizations to build SAP environments on AWS, Protera has developed a smarter way to migrate and manage SAP on AWS. The powerful platform Protera FlexBridge® combines the most up-to-date knowledge of both SAP and AWS. The Intelligent SAP Migration and Management on AWS platform Protera FlexBridge® is optimized for running SAP environments and connected applications on AWS.

    Protera FlexBridge® is a SaaS-delivered intelligent migration and management platform developed by Protera that accelerates and optimizes SAP transformations and cloud applications management. It uses proprietary rules engines, intelligent agents, and intelligent sensing and discovery to reduce errors, speed execution time, increase scale, predict outcomes, and make more informed decisions on typical migration and applications management tasks.

    Using Protera FlexBridge®, customers have reduced the complexity, cost, and downtime of SAP cloud migrations by up to 70% by leveraging the powerful migration assessment and execution rules to rapidly validate architecture design options and eliminate manual deployment time and errors.

    Once your SAP environment is running on AWS, you get access to these powerful features:

    • Protera FlexBridge® Run Dashboard - to quickly view status at a glance and see problem areas and drill down into correlated details
    • System visualizer - to easily manage large, complex systems
    • System manager - for faster, repeatable, higher-quality starts/stops and patching that avoids underlying configuration complexity
    • Availability optimizer - which keeps your systems available and up-to-date 
    • Intelligent sensing - which tracks multiple SAP parameters and filters out "noise"
    • Incident Tracker - quickly determine your configuration dynamics and level of service quality
