Enterprise customers are increasingly migrating Microsoft workloads to AWS Cloud to achieve digital transformation and to take advantage of the agility, scalability and reliability.
For customers who have deployed business-critical workloads in traditional Microsoft environment, Cloud becomes a force multiplier that enables to achieve wholistic transformation that facilitates innovation at speed and scale with standardized, API-driven infrastructure and enhanced security, transparency and collaboration.
The momentum to migrate Widows workloads to AWS Cloud is abetted by the successes demonstrated by thousands of customers. Between 2015 and 20018 there has been a 400% growth of Windows workloads using Amazon EC2 for Windows Server on AWS Cloud. With more than 10 years of innovation on Windows and SQL server, AWS Cloud offers 143 instance types and 37 instance families and 60 AMI for Windows workloads.
Widest selection of Cloud services—2X more Windows instances than its nearest competitor. This includes services such as the AWS Deep Learning AMI for Microsoft Windows Server; the only production support for Kubernetes on Windows; and the only fully managed native-Windows file system available in the Cloud with FSx for Windows File Server.
Global infrastructure with AWS Region/AZ model—recognized by industry analysts as the recommended approach for running enterprise applications that require high availability. This is one of the reasons why the next largest cloud provider had 7x more downtime hours than AWS in 2018.
SQL Server on AWS consistently shows a 2x-3x better performance using HammerDB, a TPC-C-like benchmark tool compared to the next largest cloud provider. ZK Research points out AWS has at least a 2X price/performance advantage when comparing the price of a workload, including storage, compute and networking.

The Umbrella team understood our business requirement and began the technical assessment with the right perspective. The team is clearly well versed with Citrix technology and were quickly able to identify technical issues making it a winning choice to partner with Umbrella.
Umbrella re-worked the deployment and really optimized the performance, making desktop applications fast and available all the time. The team is responsive and has good project management skills, engineers have extensive experience and an added advantage is that all solution architects are Citrix certified.
Using best practices that includes autoscaling, RI and sophisticated monitoring, Umbrella helped achieve significant cost savings even as we were able to scale up, reach new customer segments and deliver high performance consistently.
Umbrella helped us achieve significant performance improvement and cost-efficiency by configuring autoscaling, using Reserved Instances and realigning appropriate AWS resources with our workloads.
This was a strategic vision for the Group—we had to get the roll out right, in a time bound manner, very quickly. We were confident Umbrella is the right partner as the company has the right value system.”
During our long association with Umbrella, the company has been highly responsive, deeply committed and takes ownership—the team combines transparency with diligence and agility todeliver projects with passion and excellence.”
Logistic is highly dependent on technology—robust infrastructure to run ERP and critical systems which is critical to move and track consignments, achieve efficiency and meet SLAs. We have experienced more than 20% reduction in connectivity related issues by upgrading to Citrix XenApp and NetScaler along with better user experience for the operations team.”
“The superb technical competence of Umbrella allows us to focus on designing technicalities specific to our business objectives, namely compliance and security. AWS infrastructure gives us scalability and reliability, which is critical to achieve our business objectives.”
“We thank Umbrella for successful migration of infrastructure from Singapore to Mumbai. The team extended supported at all levels to deliver world-class architecture. The team is well-versed with AWS services helping them to articulate plans effectively and deliver within tight timelines.”
It was a wonderful experience working with Umbrella—extremely customer focused, listening to the customer and always extending best help possible. The team is ready to learn skills if something new comes up. I will heartily recommend Umbrella to anyone seeking help to deploy AWS infrastructure services.
“Umbrella has been a trusted advisor—educating us about Cloud and its benefits and continues to guide us on optimizing performance and achieving cost savings.”
Umbrella has in-depth understanding of Cloud best practices, well-architected framework and methodologies—enabling us to achieve high elasticity and performance, while ensuring business continuity during and post migration.”
Our objective was to deliver good customer experience with stable deployment and responsive architecture. Umbrella enabled us to achieve high performance and enhanced security. We achieved continuous cost reductions even as our infrastructure was expanding.”
Our existing traditional systems were slow, and clearly ill-equipped to deliver our need to analyse huge data sets in real time. Umbrella designed a high performing, scalable and cost-effective analytics solution in the AWS Cloud enabling us get insights into market trends in real-time, understand needs and design tests and packages.”
