PeopleSoft on AWS
Learn How to Run PeopleSoft on AWS
What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of compute power, database storage, applications, and other IT resources through a cloud services platform via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing.
Whether you are running applications that share photos to millions of mobile users or running an enterprise application like PeopleSoft, a cloud services platform provides rapid access to flexible and low-cost IT resources.
With a cloud subscription model, you don’t need to make large upfront investments in hardware and spend a lot of time on the management and support of that hardware. Instead, you can provision exactly the right type and size of computing resources you need to power your newest bright idea or operate your IT department.
You can access as many resources as you need, almost instantly, and only pay for what you use.
Cloud computing provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet. A cloud services platform, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), owns and maintains the network connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
In 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT infrastructure services to businesses as web services—now commonly known as cloud computing.
AWS has been at the forefront when it comes to providing a technologically advanced and stable cloud services.
One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace upfront capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with your business. With the cloud, businesses no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes and deliver results faster.
Today, AWS provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world.
PeopleSoft on AWS
PeopleSoft has traditionally been an on-premise application but lately, a lot of businesses have already moved their PeopleSoft application to or are planning to move their PeopleSoft application to Cloud with AWS in particular. Some of the large organizations running PeopleSoft on AWS include California State University, Arizona State University, University of Michigan etc.
Running PeopleSoft application offers several advantages. For example:
- Eliminate long procurement cycles: The bigger an organization is, the longer it takes even to add capacity or get a new server. In AWS, it takes just a few minutes. Similarly, if you don't need those many resources, you can also scale down in a matter of minutes.
- Adjust capacity according to software development cycle: With AWS, you can adjust capacity to match your current needs with ease. You can additional servers only during the QA testing phase or implementation phase.
- AWS offers built-in disaster recovery solutions to execute your business data continuity plans at lower comparative costs, which allows you to benefit from an on-demand model while always having the optimal amount of data redundancy.
- Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), Auto Recovery for
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), and Multi-Availability
Zone (AZ) capabilities reduce the impact of hardware failure impact and helps build a highly tolerant and resilient system
with the highest service level agreement (SLA) available.
- High availability - With AWS you can achieve a 99.95% uptime by placing your data and your applications in multiple Availability Zones (locations)
