Currently using essential SAP solutions like HANA and ERP? Extend the capabilities of SAP by migrating to Azure, the cloud platform optimized for SAP workloads and certified to run your applications.
Let’s discuss a few reasons why Azure is the best infrastructure and cloud platform for SAP.
Improve SAP Workflows and Accelerate Innovation
SAP users benefit from improved workflows, extra-large instances for deployment, and faster go-to-market releases on Azure. The hyper-scalable nature of Azure provides a robust infrastructure that meets the performance demands of SAP applications, with a level of agility impossible to replicate on-prem. Spin up instances in just minutes with up to 24 TB of RAM scale-up and 60 TB scale-out for SAP HANA on Azure.
Migrating to Azure opens up a whole new world with an extensive suite of features and native tools to supercharge SAP capabilities. Not just a handful of management tools – we’re talking over 100 Azure services for advanced analytics, AI, IoT, development, testing, and much more. Combining analytics capabilities with valuable SAP data leads to stronger business intelligence, with a holistic view of markets, transactions, and customers.
Secure SAP Workloads and Data
Azure secures SAP data with built-in automated backup and data recovery services. The extensive global footprint of Azure provides high availability to ensure SAP workloads and critical data are always accessible. With up to 99.99% uptime, Azure offers the highest uptime of any cloud platform and certainly higher than on-prem infrastructures.
Security and Compliance
Microsoft’s advanced cloud tools strengthen the security of SAP workloads, such as Azure Security Center and Azure Active Directory. Security Center regularly analyzes the entire environment – including SAP workloads located on-premise in an integrated hybrid cloud – and provides remediations for potential vulnerabilities. Azure Active Directory prevents unauthorized access to SAP data with multi-factor authentication.
Does your SAP data need to comply with regional or industry regulations? Azure has more than 70 compliance certifications and offerings – more than other leading cloud platforms.
SAP Azure is Backed by Strong Partnerships
Microsoft and SAP’s relationship spans multiple decades and has further deepened over time with integrated solutions. In 2019, they announced the Embrace initiative – Microsoft and SAP’s preferred cloud partnership to simplify Azure adoption for SAP applications. Embrace provides a combined support model for Azure and SAP Cloud Platform for smooth resolution. The partnership also includes unified reference architectures, roadmaps, and best practices for migrating SAP workloads to Azure.
Atmosera and Approyo’s Alliance
Following in the footsteps of the Embrace initiative, Atmosera and Approyo have joined forces to provide managed services for SAP on Azure. Together, we migrate SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA users from on-premise infrastructures to Azure. Approyo is a leading SAP Partner and Atmosera is a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP (Microsoft’s highest tier of partner certification), so our partnership brings clients the best of both worlds. Just like the Embrace initiative, the purpose of our joint solution is to reduce costs and minimize complexity for clients so that they can leverage innovative SAP solutions on Microsoft Azure.
