What is AWS End-Of-Support Migration Program(EMP) for Windows Server?

AWS EMP is End-Of-Support Migration Program offered by AWS to help customer migrate their legacy windows server applications to the latest, supported versions of Windows Server on AWS without any code changes.

How does AWS EMP for Windows Server work?

The AWS EMP technology identifies the dependencies that your application has on the outdated OS, and creates a package that includes the resources necessary for the application to run on the newer version of Windows Server. The package includes all the application files, runtimes, components, and deployment tools, as well as an engine that redirects the API calls from your application to files within the package.The EMP technology decouples the applications from the underlying OS, enabling AWS Partners or AWS Professional Services to migrate critical applications to a newer, supported version of Windows Server on AWS.
