Rehosting Windows Workloads in AWS - SQL Server Considerations


Organizations that are migrating Windows workloads powered by SQL Server to AWS are faced with a number of licensing and architectural questions. As IT teams strive to minimize disruption and reduce operating costs, it’s tempting to take the easiest path with the least number of steps. But there are some steps that should not be skipped, to ensure a smoother path to future growth and harness the power of cloud.

Join an AWS databases expert and a Clumio data protection specialist as they share best practices to follow when rehosting Windows workloads in AWS, particularly monolithic applications backed by SQL Server. Find out how to:

  • Tweak existing architecture to optimize costs while running in AWS
  • Protect data from user error and external threats
  • Tune performance of SQL Server backups in Amazon EC2 to eliminate any impact to production applications
  • Recover quickly in the event of data loss

This is part one of a two-part series covering best practices for hosting SQL Server on AWS. See also part two: Life After Rehosting Windows Applications in AWS
