Moving SAP into the public cloud is a common objective for companies because it gives them a way to both avoid infrastructure over-provisioning and also build out SAP environments that can easily scale to the changing needs of their business. Unfortunately, two-tier and three-tier SAP landscape migrations pose significant challenges when using migration tools that rely on agents or disaster recovery replication technologies.
That’s where Velostrata’s patent-pending workload streaming technology comes in. Velostrata migrates SAP landscapes to Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure in minutes, without the complex sync/cutover challenges and data consistency pitfalls that persist with agent-based replication solutions.
Easily test large SAP landscapes in the cloud without additional, expensive hardware procurement. Use Velostrata’s “test-clone” capability to create a clone of your SAP landscape that won’t interfere with your production systems. Test clones begin in the cloud within minutes, and are easily used for testing, SLA validation, sandboxes, development, training, and other short-term goals. Simply delete the test clone when you’ve completed your testing.
Velostrata optimizes migration of existing SAP R/3 landscapes into the cloud by minimizing downtime and complexity. Traditional migrations typically involve (1) using SAP OS/DB migration tools or SAP DMO on-premises, (2) importing that database into the cloud over a WAN using complex import / export procedures, and (3) rebuilding the SAP instances in the cloud. All of this adds significant downtime and complexity.
Instead, simplify and streamline by using Velostrata to start your SAP landscape in the cloud as-is within minutes and with minimal, predictable downtime. Our optimized process leads to a significant reduction in downtime, manual procedures (which are labor-intensive and prone to error), and overall completion time.
After migrating your SAP R/3 system as-is, simplify your upgrade to HANA® DB or S/4HANA® by running DMO directly in the cloud with the local cloud network’s speed and latency. This eliminates prolonged downtime, large data syncs, and transfer complexities. You’ll achieve your SAP upgrades with minimal risk and without the need to purchase expensive on-prem SAP HANA certified hardware.
Saves significant amounts of planning and preparation hours by getting SAP from on-prem and into the cloud within minutes.
Avoid the need to run the SAP Database Migration Option (DMO) on-prem or over the network.
Upgrade systems in-place within the cloud or to a fresh SAP template in the cloud.
Avoid export/import steps entirely, thus simplifying the upgrade path and eliminating the need for temporary on-prem hardware.
