For the Migrate and Modernize phase, several iterations were carried out and are explained below:
The first consisted of setting up the necessary adjustments to the AWS CloudEndure Migration Solution service, which allowed us to carry out the project with a “Lift and Shift” approach. This very interesting service provided by AWS was used for the migration of SAP S/4HANA, SAP Fiori, SAP BO, SAP Solution Manager and other non-SAP environments.
The migration process was initially carried out with the development environments, which helped to generate documentation to detect necessary steps to be implemented in the production environments and thus further decrease the system downtime of the migration process.
This solution allowed for an agile migration and facilitated the overall validations of the migrated environments, while providing the security of rollback in case of any issues.
The project involved the migration of 14 SAP servers, 11 Windows and 2 Linux, for a total of 37 migrated servers.
Another important point in SAP environments is the use of the AWS Backint agent, which facilitates the configuration and storage management of HANA database backups in S3 containers.
