GYAN DIARY’s Business Applicationsincludes a business-critical SAP environment, which was previously running on-premise Hardware Infra. GYANDIARY sought to migrate most of their on-premise systems running, including SAP, to a public cloud environment.

One of the main challenges was the provisioning of the instant data centre and latency issues which lead to several performance issues for end-users.

Sizing and costing of on-premise servers were running unnecessarily which impacted their overall economic growth.

Also, the on-premise application was taking too much time to respond.

The feature of EC2 auto-recovery helps for low-cost hardware high availability of the EC2 instances. AMI snapshots of EC2 instances will help for low-cost disaster recovery protocols for multiple locations.
