7 Sustaining business resilience Business resilience is top of mind for all companies. Running SAP on AWS can help you architect for high availability and disaster recovery with the worlds most secure, extensive, and reliable cloud infrastructure. Juhayna Industries is a good example. Amazon EC2 Amazon EBS Amazon S3 AWS CloudTrail Amazon CloudWatch AWS CloudFormation Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) Read the full Juhayna Industries, FORTE CLOUD, and AWS story. Juhayna Industries, the largest dairy manufacturer in Egypt, needed to transform its IT infrastructure to remain an industry leader, reduce costs, and adjust to remote working. Moving the company's SAP HANA environment to AWS, with its on-demand capacity and consumption-based pricing, was an attractive option. Working with FORTE CLOUD, an AWS SAP Competency Partner, the total migration took just 3 months. Because it was vital for Juhayna's database and applications to always be available for its production and sales systems, it had specific recovery-point and recovery-time objectives. Identical databases and three application servers were created using SAP HANA System Replication, which makes copies of the data for both database instances to ensure a quick failover from primary to secondary in case of an outage. Mohamed Saied IT Director, Juhayna Food Industries Employees across the company saw the benefits of AWS almost immediately. For example, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the company responded quickly to the business request for remote working. The old gateways and firewalls would never have handled 1,000-plus remote connections, but with AWS, the set up for work-from- home only took three days. Juhayna Industries has also seen—and will continue to see—long-term benefits such as cost savings and improved business continuity. Juhayna Industries taps into increased resiliency with SAP on AWS "Over a nine-year lifespan, the total cost of ownership was more than $200,000 a year less than on premises—a savings of around 40%. On top of this, we have advantages over other options, like built- in resiliency, limitless scalability, high availability, and simpler manageability." Learn more AWS solutions used
