Realize The Benefits Of Migrating Microsoft Workloads To AWS Cloud

To remain competitive during a time of economic uncertainty, small, medium, and enterprise businesses must find a way to reduce costs while increasing the performance, availability, and security of their Microsoft workloads.

To achieve this, many organizations are making the decision to migrate their Windows workloads and Windows-based applications to the cloud. By migrating Microsoft workloads to Amazon Web Services (AWS), customers can optimize costs and improve agility and scalability. Once migrated, customers can then innovate more easily and further modernize their infrastructure and applications to realize continued cost-savings.

Migrating Microsoft Workloads To AWS Has Enabled Customers To

Overcome Microsoft end-of-support security vulnerabilities.

Build and modernize .NET applications to drive innovation.

Manage and optimize Microsoft SQL Server databases.

Gain more control, visibility, and flexibility over Microsoft licenses.

AWS EC2 for Windows: Popular Use Cases

sql-server

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

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-licence-manager

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.
