The cloud is changing the way businesses operate. We at Avantra thought now is the time to explore the great benefits of going to the cloud and why now is the time to consider doing so. To learn more about cloud integration options, see our official documentation.
What are the advantages of using Avantra in a cloud environment? Here are some of the most important benefits you can get:
A flexible pricing structure is one of the top benefits of going to the cloud. It allows monitoring applications without committing to a fixed cost for servers, software, setup, or maintenance.
- Quick & easy set-up
The cloud can be easily deployed and configured from everywhere (remotely) with just an internet connection. Avantra automatically detects servers running on the cloud and allows operations such as start/stop directly from the Avantra user interface.
- Maximum uptime & business continuity
If you are using Avantra in a cloud environment, you have maximum uptime for your SAP applications and monitoring. Since the overall cloud system interconnects several servers, if any particular server fails or the workload becomes too high, automation can be set up in Avantra to immediately start an extra server/instance to take over the additional workload or system failure. This ensures that business-critical applications run smoothly and continuously.

- Agility & employee happiness
You can simplify internal operations, have better collaboration, faster rollouts, and improved data gathering and analysis ability with the cloud.
Engineers, administrators, and other employees can execute their tasks completely independently of data centers’ location or service hours. Employees have more flexibility than ever before.
- Migration assistance
Thanks to Avantra, migration to the cloud can be fully monitored and automation can be set up to transfer systems. Systems can be monitored on-premise, in legacy environments, and in parallel with the new cloud environment. This way, monitoring is uninterrupted and the business is guaranteed full monitoring coverage, even during critical transition phases, without slowing down the migration process.
- Environmentally friendly
Resources can be added and deleted as needed. This means no wasted energy consumption, no half-empty data centers, and no equipment required.
Avantra can automate the activation/deactivation of resources in a guided way. In addition, event-triggered resource allocation, especially on the cloud, is an important functionality asset. This includes, among other things, stopping NAS or SAN storage when not in use by clients, starting servers and connected resources only during business hours, stopping and resuming full landscape just with one mouse click.
Avantra is capable of communicating in a bi-directional way with major software applications on-premise or in the cloud. Full ServiceNow support is one of the really best examples of integration. Avantra also offers a full set of API for triggering events or gathering information directly from the cloud environment.
- Ease of use for DevOps
