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

One of the main challenges was the provisioning of the instant data centre and hardware required to run SAP enterprise software.

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

Why Amazon Web Services ?

Kenstar engaged AWS to migrate its SAP environment to the AWS Cloud. The core AWS services supporting Kenstar SAP environment include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, which provide the computing power to run the environment’s applications.

For storing all SAP data, Kenstar uses Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) for in-memory storage. The features like the Lambda function is helping to automatically start and stop the EC2 instances during non-business hours, eventually saving significantly high cost of guaranteed business uptime. 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 to another business locations/ branches.

To overcome the above-mentioned challenge Infodart and AWS Team suggested the following architecture diagram.


Kenstar today no longer faces the CAPEX costs of refreshing a private cloud infrastructure. The company has also enhanced the speed of its business applications, including SAP.

With SAP environment running on AWS, Kenstar has reduced the time it takes to produce our month-end report by half. That means getting KPIs into the hands of executives sooner so they can make crucial business decisions faster.

Provisioning times for SAP instances have also dropped from weeks to days since the migration to AWS. After migration Infodart analysed the infrastructure on AWS with cloud watch metrics and suggested various cost optimization. Now the Kenstar Infrastructure is running cost-effectively and securely.

Backup and restore is also substantially more efficient by using the AWS snapshot feature.
