Amazon Web Services (AWS) is one of the most popular cloud platforms in the world that has gained recognition among companies using SAP S/4HANA. One of the reasons is special EC2 instances optimized for SAP systems, which allows for efficient use of computing resources.
The scalable AWS cloud makes it easy to adapt to the company’s changing computing power and memory requirements, which is especially important for dynamic SAP business process workloads. In addition, AWS offers a range of security tools and features, such as AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), network security, as well as the ability to use encryption services, which is crucial for ERP systems.
Security is a key aspect of AWS management. The use of services such as AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) enables accurate identity management and resource access control. That is why it is so important to properly configure permissions and roles.
The prerequisite for effective management of large infrastructures in the cloud is automation. Services such as AWS CloudFormation and Terraform are responsible for the automatic creation and management of cloud resources using templates. Terraform follows the Infrastructure as Code (IAC) principle, which means that the entire infrastructure is managed by code, making it easier to track changes, replicate environments, and maintain the infrastructure as code.
Scalability of cloud services allows for optimization of costs. Knowledge of the AWS payment model is very important. AWS Cost Explorer supports cost effectiveness of managing and maintaining infrastructure in AWS. Understanding how resource fees are charged helps manage them consciously and reduce our customers’ costs.
Regular cost reviews, monitoring resource usage and adapting optimization strategies to changing requirements will help keep costs low while maintaining operational efficiency.
