An agentless service for migrating thousands of on-premises workloads to AWS. This is the enhanced replacement of Amazon EC2 VM Import service.
SMS orchestrates server migrations by:
automating incremental replication of live server volumes to the AWS cloud
allowing customers to schedule replications
track the replication progress of a group of servers via Management Console
Each server volume replicated is saved as a new Amazon Machine Image (AMI), which can be launched as an EC2 instance in the AWS cloud. If you are using application groupings, Server Migration Service will launch the servers in a CloudFormation stack using an auto-generated CloudFormation template.
AWS SMS creates a new EBS snapshot with every replication. It replicates server volumes from your on-premises environment to S3 temporarily and purges them from S3 right after creating EBS snapshots.
You can migrate virtual machines from VMware vSphere and Windows Hyper-V to AWS.
You can replicate your on-premises servers to AWS for up to 90 days (per server). After that, your replication job will be automatically terminated. This duration can be increased by submitting a request to AWS.
Customers are able to migrate large volumes up to 16 TB.
AWS Server Migration Service Connector
A pre-configured FreeBSD virtual machine (in OVA format). You need to first deploy the SMS Connector virtual appliance on each of your on-premises VMware vCenter environment to use AWS SMS.
The AWS Server Migration Service Connector supports password-based proxy, but not NTLM-based proxy.
The SMS Connector can be configured to use SCVMM or standalone Hyper-V VMs.
You need two separate SMS Connectors to simultaneously migrate VMs from both VMware and Hyper-V environments.
AWS Server Migration Service offers multi-server migration support as well. You can migrate entire application stacks rather than migrating each server individually. This is done through an auto-generated CloudFormation template (non-modifiable).
AWS Server Migration Service has the ability to resume failed replication jobs, allowing you to take remedial action and resume the replication from the point it failed, as opposed to restarting the job. This adds resiliency to the migration process and allows you to complete large-scale server migrations in an efficient and timely manner.
Replicated server volumes are encrypted in transit by TLS.
AWS SMS Connector only captures basic VM inventory information and snapshots of server volumes from VMware vCenter and does not gather any sensitive information.
You incur charges with every S3 usage and EBS snapshot created by AWS SMS.

What our students say about us?
I’m deeply impressed by the quality of the practice tests from Tutorial Dojo. They are extremely well-written, clean and on-par with the real exam questions. Their practice tests and cheat sheets were a huge help for me to achieve 958 / 1000 — 95.8 % on my first try for the AWS Certified Solution Architect Associate exam. Perfect 10/10 material. The best $14 I’ve ever spent!

Given the enormous number of students and therefore the business success of Jon's courses, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jon personally responds to many, including often the more technical questions from his students within the forums, showing that when Jon states that teaching is his true passion, he walks, not just talks the talk. I much respect and thank Jon Bonso.
The explanation to the questions are awesome. Lots of gap exposed in my learning. I used the practice tests along with the TD cheat sheets as my main study materials. This is a must training resource for the exam.
Using the practice exam helped me to pass. I think I wouldn't have passed if not for Jon's practice sets.
I can say that Tutorials Dojo is a leading and prime resource when it comes to the AWS Certification Practice Tests. I also tried other courses but only Tutorials Dojo was able to give me enough knowledge of Amazon Web Services. My favorite part of this course is explaining the correct and wrong answers as it provides a deep understanding in AWS Cloud Platform. The course I purchased at Tutorials Dojo has been a weapon for me to pass the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate exam and to compete in Cloud World. A Big thank you to Team Tutorials Dojo and Jon Bonso for providing the best practice test around the globe!!!
