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 better 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, 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 Consulting 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.
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.
EBS stores data as blocks and can be attached to an existing EC2 instance. The size of the blocks range from 1 GB to 1 TB and they are replicated to prevent data loss.
VPC allows to create a private cloud using AWS infrastructure. Businesses can customize the network and have complete control within the cloud.
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.
