Jindal Poly looks for cost savings & scalability

The manufacturing giant wanted to deploy SAP S/4HANA on AWS Cloud with the following goals:

  • Build a highly secure environment to host business-critical data
  • Leverage on-demand, elastic infrastructure to deploy SAP S/4HANA in a cost-effective manner
  • Streamline operations with high visibility and a data-based strategy  

Elasticity, Cost Efficiency & High Availability with SAP on AWS

The prominent manufacturing company selected AWS because of its established reputation and easy to use model, along with Umbrella Infocare for our past experience and expertise in SAP on AWS.  

To help the Polyfilms manufacturer achieve the desired goals, Umbrella designed and configured Managed VPN services that enabled robust and secure connectivity from multiple client locations to AWS Mumbai region. Local users connect using site to site VPN while other users connect with remote access VPN using Cisco Any Connect VPN client and Cisco Services Router (CSR) that starts up VPN service on AWS. User authentication on SAP server is done using corporate Active Directory (AD).  All the SAP S/4 HANA instances are hardened for Jindal Poly’s security policy requirements. Memory optimized SUSE Linux instances are certified by SAP. These steps ensure a highly secure environment for hosting sensitive and critical data. 

 The Umbrella Infocare team has setup three separate instances for the Dev, test and production environments and Dev and test servers are stopped during off hours and weekends enabling cost savings. AWS S3 is used for auto backup of applications ensuring data redundancy.  

Apart from this, the following AWS services on SAP ensure continuous monitoring and security: 

  • CloudWatch for monitoring 
  • CloudTrail for tracing user activity on AWS account 
  • IAM based access 
  • AWS Config to audit and keep track of resource configurations 
“We were looking for security, flexibility and cost savings with SAP on AWS. The Umbrella Infocare team has solid expertise in SAP on AWS and helped us with solutions that addressed our business needs and improve performance.”
