Your organisation is about to move first workloads towards AWS or you plan to do this in the near future. The next consequent step is to find out which services and infrastructure setup are the best for your software. An example of an internal roadmap looks as follows:
- Moving your application to AWS in the most efficient way possible e.g. lift and shift;
- Implementation of AWS best practices;
- Automation as much as possible from the beginning;
- Implementation of basic monitoring.
Amazon Web Services is a cornerstone of your business and now you have an appetite for more. Your production setup is up and running, thus now it is a time to improve without investing too much manpower into cloud technologies. The next step is to find a reliable partner that supports you in following issues:
- Account access optimisation and complex user management;
- Reserved Instances and Reserved Capacity;
- Account wide monitoring on infrastructure and application level.
Sky is the limit
The organisation you are working with is playing on enterprise level with an significant AWS footprint. However, the cloud is only one aspect amongst many others that impact the success of your business. You need to scale up on multiple aspects and plan to grow significantly over next quarters. Focusing on your products and services have your full attention, and you demand following tasks to be performed:
- Your business and free resources scoping in order to concentrate on features, instead of investing into OPS;
- Costs - cutting and upscaling faster than the competition;
- Account wide monitoring on infrastructure and application level;
- Enterprise level access management;
- Applying Reserved Instances and Reserved Capacity;
- Handling of multi account setup;
- Business process visualisation and process optimisation.

Workshops and training
Security Assessment and Account Audits
Amazon Web Services offers excellent conditions to develop and operate resilient applications on secure infrastructure. Our engineers work daily in this environment and are familiar with the pitfalls that the cloud inevitably is prone of. The considerable number of services being released month by month by Amazon makes it difficult to recognise a consolidated approach. Considering our long track of experience, we offer not only a comprehensive AWS account analysis that is based on the latest AWS best practices, but also we identify weaknesses and propose appropriate solutions.
Would you like to exploit a full potential of your software and take a full advantage of AWS cloud, but you are facing unpredictable limits? We are there for you when you require to analyse your software architecture and optimise it for use in AWS. What resources are available for performance optimization, where costs can be saved or what is the value of managed services - we put these questions in the spotlight and develop a tailored solution together with you.
Cloud technologies require a revision at all IT levels, which create constant training needs for developers, operators and even management: whether it's AWS services, infrastructure automation like AWS CloudFront or Terraform, or themes like the Docker ecosystem. Training your employees is an excellent long-term investment, thus book your customised in-house training and find out how we add value to your organisation!
Managed Service Program (MSP)
We take over the operation of your AWS accounts and ensure reliable operations and infrastructure maintenance. As a result, the growth of your IT landscape is fully protected. Moreover, our services are not only limited to operations and problem detection, but also we ensure Amazon best practices in terms of architecture, transparency and reporting.
Costs and workload under control
Cost optimization is our top priority. Whether it is Reserved Instances or Reserved Capacity - we take care of everything on your behalf and arrange an individual invoice for every account within your AWS organization. As a result, you receive a detailed analysis of all resources. Of course, based on your request, you get an access to our billing - and optimization tools. Therefore you always have an overview that helps you to benefit from our cost advantages as AWS Channel Reseller.
Security and Compliance
Amazon Web Services offers tremendous possibilities down to the smallest detail. However, this benefit requires increased attention to security and compliance. An account managed by us is monitored around the clock, which drastically reduces the risk of a security hole as a result of misconfigured infrastructure. Proactive intervention prevents unintentional opening of entry gates for potential attackers. We throughly document every change we make and you are always able to view it.
Your product is constantly expanding and the underlying infrastructure in the cloud needs to be maintained. Certificates expire, disks are full, backups have to be created and imported - all of these issues require attention and with our support you are able to implement them as soon as possible.
Monitoring and Debugging
We offer individual monitoring models as Service Level Agreements (SLA). Here we adapt to your needs and develop a solution based on your requirements.
