AWS Managed Services

Overview

Cloud Computing and DevOPS are no more just Buzzwords. More and more enterprises, SME, small, medium and large customers, governments and startups are leveraging Cloud bases services and offerings to manage and facilitate core IT needs which includes , Infrastructure, Platforms, Applications and business services using a subscription based business model.

Amazon web services (AWS) is the oldest and a pioneer in all the cloud computing areas of IAAS (Infrastructure-as-a-service), PAAS (Platform-as-a-service) & SAAS (Software-as-a-service). They have a global footprint including Availability zones in Mumbai (India).

In 2017, AWS comprised more than 90 services spanning a wide range including computing, storage, networking, database, analytics, application services, deployment, management, mobile, developer tools, and tools for the Internet of Things. The most popular include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). Most services are not exposed directly to end users, but instead offer functionality through APIs (Application Programmable Interface) for developers to use in their applications. Amazon Web Services’ offerings are accessed over HTTP, using the REST (Representation State Transfer) architectural style and SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol)

Amazon markets AWS to subscribers as a way of obtaining large scale computing capacity more quickly and cheaply than building an actual physical server farm. All services are billed based on usage, but each service measures usage in varying ways. As of 2017, AWS owns a dominant 34% of all cloud (Iaas, Paas) while the next three competitors Microsoft, Google, and IBM have 11%, 8%, 6% respectively according to Synergy Group

Focus Areas

  • Web Sites and Web Site Hosting
  • Amazon Web Services offers cloud web hosting solutions ranging from simple websites, static websites, Enterprise web sites that provide businesses, non-profits, and governmental organizations with low-cost ways to deliver their websites and web applications. Whether you’re looking for a marketing, rich-media, or ecommerce website, AWS offers a wide-range of website hosting options. Our AWS team will help you select the right set of services and tools for your individual hosting needs.

  • DevOps
  • DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools to facilitate the principle of “Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery” that needs to be practiced in order to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This speed enables organizations to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market. Our AWS experts has the right skills to help institutionalize this doctrine for our customers.

  • Virtual Servers and Auto Scaling (EC2)
  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides secure, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change. Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate them from common failure scenarios.
    Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling helps you maintain application availability and allows you to dynamically scale your Amazon EC2 capacity up or down automatically according to conditions you define. You can also use Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling for dynamic scaling of EC2 instances in order to automatically increase the number of Amazon EC2 instances during demand spikes to maintain performance and decrease capacity during lulls to reduce costs. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling is well suited both to applications that have stable demand patterns or that experience hourly, daily, or weekly variability in usage. We have a dedicated specialized infrastructure team capable of meeting all of your virtual server and auto scaling requirements using EC2.

  • Serverless Computing and Applications
  • Serverless computing allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers. Serverless applications don’t require you to provision, scale, and manage any servers. You can build them for web applications or backend services like real-time data processing. Building serverless applications means that your developers can focus on their core product instead of worrying about managing and operating servers or runtimes, either in the cloud or on-premises. This reduced overhead lets developers reclaim time and energy that can be spent on developing great products which scale and that are reliable. We have resources with specialized skills on the “AWS Serverless Platform” that spans the areas of ;

    • Compute
    • API Proxy
    • Storage
    • Database
    • Interprocess Messaging
    • Orchestration
    • Analytics
    • Developer Tooling
  • Backup Storage & Archive
  • AWS has a broad range of storage solutions for backup, recovery and data archival designed for today’s workloads. This flexibility allows you to focus on your business’s needs, and eliminates the challenges around figuring out what storage systems to purchase. Our team of storage experts will help you pick and implement the right storage strategy and tools for your business needs. Some of the benefits of storage on the cloud using AWS include;

    • No Overprovisioning needed (Pay for only what you need)
    • Your Data is Secure with the help of standards like AES 256, AWS security certificates & VPCs
    • Data transfer at just the right speed
    • You control where your data is

  • Containers & Microservices

  • Containers are a method of operating system virtualization that allow you to run an application and its dependencies in resource-isolated processes. Containers allow you to easily package an application’s code, configurations, and dependencies into easy to use building blocks that deliver environmental consistency, operational efficiency, developer productivity, and version control. Containers can help ensure that applications deploy quickly, reliably, and consistently regardless of deployment environment. Containers also give you more granular control over resources giving your infrastructure improved efficiency. Containers and Microservices are the two pillars for every cloud enabled / cloud native applications that need to follow a strict CICD (Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery) regimen.
    In a microservices architecture, services should be fine-grained and the protocols should be lightweight. The benefit of decomposing an application into different smaller services is that it improves modularity and makes the application easier to understand, develop and test. It also parallelizes development by enabling small autonomous teams to develop, deploy and scale their respective services independently
    A microservices-based architecture:

    • Naturally enforces a modular structure.
    • Lends itself to a continuous delivery software development process. A change to a small part of the application only requires one or a small number of services to be rebuilt and redeployed.
    • Adheres to principles such as fine-grained interfaces (to independently deployable services), business-driven development (e.g. domain-driven design), IDEAL cloud application architectures, polyglot programming and persistence, lightweight container deployment, decentralized continuous delivery, and DevOps with holistic service monitoring.
    • Provides characteristics that are beneficial to scalability.

    We have enterprise and application architects who excel in designing applications around the microservice design pattern with the ability to containerize each independently functional module within a container like docker. This approach is the proven and most suitable approach for cloud enabled / cloud native apps .
