Why Microsoft Azure for SAP?

Azure is a proven environment for SAP. With thousands of reference customers globally, and unrivalled security, compliance and innovation all baked in. Microsoft Azure is the home of SAP and is the only cloud platform to receive the ‘preferred’ level of endorsement from SAP. Customer-specific reference architectures provided by Macquarie and validated by Microsoft are the product of years of successful deployments and represent global best-practice.

  • The SAP preferred platform.

    Purpose-built SAP certified Azure workloads combine with Azure native services like Security Centre, Azure Policy, Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery – all tightly integrated, optimised and risk mitigated. Microsoft and SAP are aligned globally and strategically – expressed in partnership within the Azure platform.

    Optimise Costs.

    Bring your existing on-premises SQL Server licenses, RHEL or SLES subscriptions to Azure and save up to 85% compared to standard PAYG rates. By combining Azure Hybrid Benefit, Azure Reservations & Macquarie’s ongoing optimisations as part of Azure Managed – you’ve achieve the lowest total cost of ownership for your environment.

  • Extended Support.

    Microsoft offers three-year extended support for select legacy Operating Systems – exclusively available to Azure. This gives you more time to decide the most appropriate course of action for any legacy systems that may accompany your SAP migration; without incurring additional risk.
