The Value of AWS Consulting


Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the leading suite of cloud services for all facets of web development. From infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) to scalable cloud storage to “big data,” high-performance computing solutions, AWS offers something for every organization’s needs. AWS is powerful, robust, and ubiquitous. In fact, many of us are benefitting from it without even realizing it, as it forms part of the infrastructure of some of the most well-known websites in the world. Amazon does not release figures of the total AWS value to the company but it is estimated to be worth $19 billion.

AWS is comprehensive and varied, which means that in order to fully realize its value to your organization, there are many expert considerations to make. Let us take a look at some of the key decisions to be made when ad opting AWS for web solutions.

Combining Services
One of the most in-demand services from AWS is its infrastructure component, Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). This service allows developers to create virtual machine “instances” that can be provisioned at their convenience and are charges per hour of use. These machines can be used to serve web applications or however the organization employing them sees fit. AWS also encompasses the storage system S3, one that currently stores over 1 trillion “objects” – items that are up to 5 terabytes in size.  AWS also features Elastic Beanstalk, a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) option for developing and deploying apps on the EC2 infrastructure, thankfully at no extra cost beyond running the virtual machine instances. While a web software solution could use all three, it is under no obligation to use all of them together. In fact many PaaS services offered by other vendors use EC2 as their base. Expert AWS consulting can help an organization decide which combination of services is best for its operations.

AWS runs from 8 regions around the globe, each with its own availability zones that spread access to the service throughout the region. This architecture is designed to mitigate outages and provide the best worldwide coverage of the services. AWS experts are in the best position to decide how to provision EC2 instances and other resources for the best performance and uptime for its needs.
