AWS is just one letter away from JAWS – one of the greatest cinematic releases of all time. But as we’ll explain in this guide, there are plenty of other reasons to give this cloud technology a whirl.
What is AWS?
AWS stands for Amazon Web Services, and is a popular cloud platform among businesses large and small. But given there are so many cloud technologies to choose from, is AWS the most AWS-ome of them all? Here are some reasons why AWS is better than a knickerbocker glory.
#1 – top-notch security
Handling personal data is the hottest of all potatoes, and naturally, making sure your people and customers’ information is protected is priority number one. Fortunately, AWS offers a secure environment for your most precious data. Here are just some of its security features:
- User-defined permissions and identities
- Automated incident response and recovery
- Threat detection, logging and monitoring – all backed up by a vast network of AWS data centres.
Of course, security is about your processes and protocols as well as these core features, but if you do plump for AWS, our team will help you adjust to your new AWS-level security apparatus.
#2 – bespoke AWS features
One of the great things about AWS is that you can choose from an array of tools and services that suit your needs. Whether your priority is analytics, storage or streamlining your workflows, you can use AWS in ever-evolving ways depending on the needs of your business.
We’ve managed plenty of AWS migrations in our time, so if you’re stumped for ideas on how to make your cloud tech work for you, our team can help save you time and money during the transition.
#3 – detailed reporting
AWS reporting tools can be used to keep track of everything from costs per project (or product feature) to monitoring usage. Keeping tabs on this key data can help you control costs and manage your resources more effectively.
Here at The Possibility Partnership, we know our way around AWS tools like a bee knows its hive. Read more about our AWS-certified solutions to avoid getting stung.
#4 – scalable solutions
AWS solutions are more scalable than the lowest mountain in the Netherlands.
No two business days are the same, so AWS services like Auto Scaling will monitor your applications continually to ensure you can benefit from optimum performance levels and resource management.
And as your business continues to grow, our AWS experts can help you embed cloud engineering infrastructure with scalability in mind.
#5 – AWS is cost-effective
Last but not least, one of the most unique features of AWS is its pay-as-you-go pricing model. And just like 2 for 1 espresso martinis, it’s a deal not to be missed.
Agility matters, and if you own a freewheeling startup where concrete plans aren’t always possible, with AWS you can dial your usage up and down as your needs change.
And if you’re struggling to see the wood for the trees, our AWS heroes can advise you on how best to utilise this platform according to your budget and business priorities.
