SAP National Security Services has teamed up with Amazon Web Services to help government customers quickly and securely transition to the cloud.
The partnership will allow SAP NS2 customers to select AWS GovCloud as a part of NS2’s Secure HANA Cloud offering, enabling them to easily and securely transition workloads to the cloud, the company said. The new offering combines the capabilities and experience of cloud experts in the delivery of SAP-related workloads on an AWS infrastructure, according to the company.
“We are excited to extend our collaboration to offer AWS platforms as part of our Secure HANA Cloud along with our other capabilities,” said Mark Testoni, president and chief executive officer of SAP NS2. “The partnership will drive more effective operations to support customer missions through improved security by providing a vehicle to drive digital transformation, while driving down cost substantially.”
The new offering helps customers comply with the requirements of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, the Defense Department’s Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide and FedRAMP, allowing organizations to run their applications in a secure cloud infrastructure with comprehensive services and support, SAP NS2 said.
SAP NS2 and AWS are dedicated to ensuring that Secure HANA Cloud runs seamlessly on AWS, and are pleased to be working together, according to David Levy, vice president of U.S. government at Amazon Web Services.
“We continue to see our public sector customers move more critical workloads and applications to the cloud, and this collaboration is one way in which we can further support them, delivering on the tools and services they’ve requested,” Levy said.
AWS is a featured exhibitor at SAP’s SAPPHIRE NOW, a cloud and business technology conference taking place in Orlando, Florida, from June 5 to 7.
