When you collaborate with 1CloudHub, you can work with a team of AWS-certified experts to leverage MAP, reducing the complexity, uncertainty, and the cost of cloud migration.

— “ Our Clients are immensely benefitted by migrating the Windows workload to AWS EC2 since 2012, thanks  to ease of migration, performance, enhanced availability and security. Right from SQL server always on availability groups, Windows failover storage cluster for SAP workloads leveraging S2D, to Integrating with On premise AD DC or setting up an RODC on Cloud it has been so seamless in migrating and operating windows native workloads on AWS”

AWS EC2 for Windows: Popular Use Cases


SQL Server on Amazon EC2

With Microsoft SQL Server you can quickly provision and configure DB instances and storage with it, and you can scale your instances by changing the size of your instances or the amount of storage. If you need complete control and flexibility, running your relational DB on Amazon EC2 is the best option.


AWS Directory Service

AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory, also known as AWS Managed Microsoft Active Directory (AD). It is designed for organisations that rely on Active Directory for identity and access management and want to integrate with their existing infrastructure. It makes it simple to migrate AD-dependent applications and Windows workloads to AWS.


AWS License Manager

AWS License Manager simplifies the management of Windows and SQL Server licenses from vendors such as Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, and IBM across AWS and on-premises environments. It is offered at no additional charge. Once configured, AWS License Manager handles these administrative tasks on your behalf, allowing you to launch instances as easily as you would an EC2 instance with AWS-provided licenses.


Storage Spaces Direct (S2D)

Storage Spaces Direct is ideal when you want to expand network storage capacity in the most flexible way possible and ensure that data is highly secure in the event of hardware failures. S2D allows you to make data available at different company locations at the same time. (S2D) is a software-defined storage solution in which a software application manages the storage hardware. This allows you to pool storage capacity and combine the technical advantages of the individual drives.
Good scalability, more servers can be easily added.
High availability through mirroring of data; hardware failures do not result in data loss.
Unlike similar solutions from other vendors, S2D allows you to use industry-standard server hardware as long as it is approved by Microsoft.
The system is optimized for SQL servers and virtualization with Hyper-V.
