SAP Customers face a set of challenges migrating to AWS usually takes about four to five weeks. Rocket Steam offers a way to reduce that to under 24 hours, migrating the somewhat rigid SAP system onto AWS, and allowing management of the AWS installation in an automated manner. The Rocket Steam set of tools are targeted at consultancy firms and includes HANAlyzed, which allows customers to make a test drive of the system on AWS using their data, without an additional license.
Migration and Disaster recovery usually relies upon file snapshots, database mechanisms, or other manual processes that are detached from one another. A point in time snapshot must be caught up in time once the application migration has completed, in order to incorporate additional transactions. Cloud Endure started providing replication of apps from one AWS Region to another. Using the same technology they extended into the migration space, getting not only the entire application stack into the cloud but the data as well. Their product offers continuous block level replication for any application that runs on Windows or Linux, without zero downtime and adverse affect on the performance of the application.
Enterprises have a real problem meeting storage needs in the cloud. Cloud storage products have evolved with focus on start-ups rather than enterprise applications and have traditionally been difficult to integrate with enterprise storage protocols and practice. Zadara Storage offers a service based on traditional protocols such as NFS to migrate traditional shared storage to the cloud, leveraging AWS Direct Connect with less than 1msec latency from five AWS regions.
Amazon is making a major shift into the enterprise space, taking clear aim at VMWare. Greg Ness of Cloud Velox and other long-term industry veterans say that there are still issues concerning the cost of getting an enterprise IT span into the cloud. Amazon needs to make it faster, more convenient and less expensive to deploy apps into AWS. Many early cloud migration vendors began with tools aimed at developers for single servers that were not good for mixed environments, but the Trillion dollar Enterprise IT market demands a level of automation of stacks, application, network services and physical systems. CloudVelox technology offers the potential to automate up to 75% of the transition effort. Projects taking three to six months with thousands of man-hours of effort can be condensed into a few weeks.
