When it comes to cloud computing, Amazon's AWS platform is arguably the market leader. We've been providing AWS consulting since 2007 and, well, we're big fans. Our AWS developers are experienced with all aspects of Amazon Web Services, including EC2, S3, ELB, EBS, IAM, and acronym-after-acronym more.
Clients like Right Guard turn to Objective's AWS development team because of our depth of experience and our successful track record as AWS consultants.
Learn more below about how we can use AWS to move your application into the cloud, saving you money and eliminating the need to manage hardware.
Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) provides the core of Amazon's scalable computing offering. With complete control over your virtual computing environment, EC2 lets you create and boot new server instances in minutes, scaling dynamically to handle fluctuations in demand.
While S3 covers file storage, RDS provides Relational Database Services for your application. RDS also handles automatic database backups with user-defined retention periods, reducing the time a DBA spends doing database maintenance tasks.
CloudFormation makes creating and managing stacks (collections of AWS resources) simple. Resource dependencies are automatically handled for you, which makes deployment more predictable and less stressful.
ELB Load Balancing
Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) gives AWS developers a way to automatically distribute incoming traffic to multiple EC2 instances which helps with fault tolerance, application performance, and even multi-zone deployments.
IAM Access Security
The Identity and Access Management (IAM) capabilities of AWS give you secure access control for both users and integrated systems. Integration with existing identity federation systems eliminates duplication when granting and revoking access.
SQS MESSAGE QUEUEING
Queueing and delivering messages between servers requires a high degree of scalability and reliability. Amazon SQS is a hosted service which gives AWS developers an easy-to-integrate solution to this problem.
Amazon's S3 provides scalable storage in the cloud for your application's data. Using S3 eliminates the issues associated with anticipating user/system data and trying to purchase hardware accordingly. With S3, you have access to exactly the amount of storage space you need at all times.
CloudWatch is one of our favorite AWS tools. Cloudwatch provides customizable monitors and alerts, allowing your application to react automatically to pre-defined critical events like CPU over-utilization.
AWS Auto Scaling lets you define conditions upon which capacity can be scaled up or down automatically. During peak demand, Auto Scaling will fire up additional EC2 instances and then remove them later when they're no longer necessary.
