AWS offers a wide range of Microsoft services inside their cloud platform. Using AWS services like Directory Service, Amazon EC2 on AWS, RDS and FSx for Windows File Server, you can take advantage of the Microsoft/AWS partnership to run Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Windows Server, SQL Server and Microsoft file server instances.
AWS is a Certified Gold member of the Microsoft Partner Network and is building Microsoft specific technologies and services that allow users to run Windows based applications in AWS securely and easily. There are more Windows servers running on AWS than on any other cloud platform.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has many advantages for running Microsoft Windows Server:
Amazon EC2 instances are offered on-demand for businesses to use. That enables them to respond more quickly to business requirements and utilize resources more efficiently. Customers will be able to spin up anywhere from one to thousands of instances in minutes.
AWS understands how security is crucial for businesses as such maintains rigorous security protocols. When using AWS for Microsoft workloads, customers are building on top of a secure infrastructure. Plus, AWS offers various tools and services to protect every workload.
AWS provides businesses with a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) as the need for hardware management is reduced and their pay-as-you-go pricing. According to an IDC study, businesses running Windows workloads on AWS managed to lower their costs by 56% over five years after migrating.
AWS is a highly reliable cloud environment, so customers can rest assured that their services will always be available when deploying Windows-based applications and workloads there.
We help organizations move their Windows workloads to AWS by applying a ‘lift and restructure’ approach. We move as many Microsoft services as possible to AWS managed services such as AWS Directory Service, Amazon RDS for SQL Server and AWS FSx for Windows File Server to optimize cost, maintainability and security.
Furthermore, we help organizations leave behind legacy environments such as Citrix and RDP farms and allow end-users to use their Windows-based applications securely from any place and any device by deploying innovative AWS technologies.
