Moving IT Infrastructure to the Amazon Cloud
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a set of cloud based solutions offered by Amazon. Many businesses are moving parts of their IT infrastructure to the cloud and AWS is a preferred choice. Amazon has feasible solutions for web and application hosting (EC2, EBS, S3), backup and storage (S3), content delivery (CloudFront) and database (SimpleDB, RDS, ElastiCache). These solutions are flexible and secure compared to traditional solutions.
Amazon data centers are located in the U.S., Europe, Singapore, Australia, and Japan. This geographically spread infrastructure allows creation of low-latency, highly-available applications. Businesses can create reliable, highly-available virtual IT infrastructure that can scale up or down depending on the needs at any point in time.
QBurst is an Amazon partner with the experience and expertise to help businesses migrate to the AWS infrastructure. We have migrated many websites and applications from traditional managed services to AWS public cloud. This has resulted in improved performance, far better reliability, and considerable cost savings.
The following are some of the AWS products we help businesses implement.
EC2 is a web service to create on-demand instances in the cloud. The elastic feature enables businesses to increase or decrease the number of CPU instances and vary the type of CPUs as needed. The feature of scalability is offered on the computer power though EC2.
S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve data in the cloud. Data is kept safe and protected from unintended loss. Apart from S3, Amazon also provides storage solutions through EBS (Amazon Elastic Block Store), Glacier etc.
CloudFront provides quick delivery of content using a global network of edge locations. Redundant copies of content are stored in various locations. This web service is designed to work with other services like EC2 and S3.
Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a web service that makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It supports MySQL, SQL Server, and Oracle databases. It provides service across different regions and multiple availability zones to provide maximum uptime for your database. It’s also enabled with easy to manage features in addition to its scalability.
Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) web service. It helps to manage name server of your cloud hosted infrastructure. This works in connection with other AWS services and DNS management activities are much faster with Route 53.
