Modernise, Cost Optimise & Revolutionise your workloads with Synthesis and AWS

Is Your Organisation Running Windows-Based Workloads?

Migrating these workloads can lead to reduced operational costs and increased return on investment. But to realise all the benefits of cloud, you must take a revolutionary step further. Enter modernisation. By not only migrating your workloads but modernising them to the AWS Cloud, you will leave behind legacy and expensive licensing, and look forward to cost saving, as well as higher performance, greater reliability, and rapid innovation to revolutionise your business.

AWS has been home to Microsoft (MS) Workloads for well over a decade now and is credited with the lion’s share of MS Workloads in the public cloud space. At Synthesis, as the only South African Partner with this competency, we’ve leveraged the synergies of both platforms and technologies to cultivate deep expertise in MS Workload modernisation, as well as migration and operationalisation. We have partnered with AWS to offer significant discounts for clients embarking on this modernisation journey.

Modernisation pathways include:

  • Migrate from legacy .NET applications to containerised .NET Core applications or to Lambda i.e. serverless technology– move from monolithic applications to a decoupled architecture for increased cost savings and scalability. Move away from Windows Server to reduce costs and escape licensing restrictions.
  • Migrate SQL Server running on Windows Server to Amazon Aurora or SQL Server on Linux- cloud-native services like Amazon Aurora provide the security, availability, and reliability of commercial databases at 1/10th the cost.  No longer pay for expensive Windows and/or SQL Server licensing.
