Aviatrix Certified Engineer Multicloud Network Associate - SAP Specialty

The Aviatrix Certified Engineer (ACE) Multicloud Network Associate – SAP Specialty Training is the starting point of your multicloud networking and security education to support SAP migrations to the public cloud. 

 

SAP is the leadingenterprise resource planning (ERP) software in the world. With the introduction of S/4HANA, SAP has taken ERP to the next level by using the power of in-memory computing to process vast amounts of data and to support advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. 

 

As enterprises move their business-critical SAP workloads to their public clouds of choice (AWS, Azure, GCP, etc.), business-critical infrastructure is required to optimize uptime, performance, security, and cost. CSPs have worked closely with SAP to certify basic infrastructure like compute and storage; however enterprises must address intelligent networking, compliance, security, high availability, and operational visibility need. Enterprises also demand a simple, consistent way to connect multiple regions, multiple-clouds, and seamlessly extend the clod operation model down to on-premises. 

 

This specialty training covers basic SAP fundamentals with a focus on S/4HANA, cloud networking components, and terminology of the major cloud service providers. The training also discusses challenges and limitations when utilizing public cloud infrastructure. 

 

The training focuses on SAP S/4HANA common design patterns from a multicloud networking and security perspective, traffic flows between various SAP system components, and common networking and security use cases.
