Why Windows on AWS

Higher reliability and performance

Greater security and identity services

AWS offers 230 security, compliance, and governance services and features, 5x more services than the next largest cloud provider. With the AWS Nitro System, the underlying platform for EC2 instances, virtualization functions are offloaded to dedicated hardware and software resulting in a minimized attack surface. The Nitro Security chip continuously monitors, protects, and verifies the instance hardware and firmware. We offer AWS Managed Active Directory securely in the cloud eliminating the need for you to synchronize or replicate data from your existing Active Directory during migrations.

More migration experience

AWS has unmatched experience helping millions of organizations reach their migration goals faster through unique tools and services. With AWS Database Migration Service , over 230,000 databases and we can help you quickly and securely migrate, while minimizing downtime to applications. The AWS End-of-Support Migration Program can migrate legacy Windows Server applications to the latest, supported versions of Windows Server on AWS.

Lower TCO

Customers can reduce 5-year cost of operations by 56% and gain 37% lower infrastructure costs, delivering up to 442% ROI over 3 years, per IDC. AWS also offers customers more ways to save through unique pricing models such as Savings Plans, which provide you with savings up to 72% on Amazon EC2 instances, and Amazon EC2 Spot, which reduces costs by up to 90% on compute instances for fault tolerant workloads.

Flexible licensing options

By purchasing Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) or Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) license-included instances, you get new, fully compliant SQL Server licenses from AWS. You can bring your existing licenses to AWS with Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts, Amazon EC2 Dedicated Instances, or EC2 instances with default tenancy using Microsoft License Mobility through Software Assurance.
