Amazon Web Services – The future of IT and Infrastructure is really the AWS. The way traditional IT has been run; this is really a huge game changer. In the past when you needed a server to go through all the red tape and paper work to get it all setup sometimes you would have to wait weeks / months, patched, racked and ready to go. Within a few clicks Imagine now, when your server is ready to go with all your patches, Operating System, storage and the best part you saved a lot of money.
Amazon Web Services makes setting up environments as easy. In your office taking up space no longer do you need expensive servers / hardware. Whatever you were paying for before everything is in the cloud is secure, safe and cheaper than the amount of things you can do on AWS is mind boggling and of course all small and medium business should consider making the switch. To save money for your business this is a guaranteed way which will make your life much easier. Whatever server or service you want up and going, with a few clicks you can customize it i.e. Right down to CPU, Memory, RAM and even storage. You can pick some really fast optimized SSD’s if your application requires more speed and this storage options alone are amazing. For your needs in terms of cost the other good thing about Amazon Web Services is that they offer a variety of packages. You can choose servers that charge you on demand always and pay by the hour or get reserved packages. To store files of almost any types the S3 storage offering allows. You and implement security so you can share with whoever you like around the world. The S3 allows for encryption of the data and it’s safe. In different regions these files can automatically replicat to other storage buckets . For data other disk solutions include long time. Archival storage that is barely accessing but needs to storing for legal reasons. In my opinion the way that traditional IT shops have been operating is about to change. With expensive maintenance contracts gone will be the days of expensive servers and storage systems. Microsoft Azure and Office 365 is also a serious competitor right now. And Cloud business is booming and for these services things will continue to grow with more demand.
