Any cloud infrastructure development is crucial in reaching business success. Cloud infrastructures contribute to business success by offering better insights from any given data, providing better flexibility and scalability, driving collaboration and efficiency, and ensuring business continuity - all while saving on cost. And while business owners have plenty of cloud solution choices, only a few come close to the benefits of AWS and its Managed Services.
What is AWS?
AWS is short for Amazon Web Services - an online platform that provides on-demand cloud computing solutions. AWS can be configured into different services based on a company user’s needs, with more than 100 services comprising the AWS portfolio. These include operations like database storage and backup, application development, security, analytics, computing, and more. Each service helps corporations scale efficiently.
What is AWS Managed Services?
Today, companies in over 190 countries utilize AWS. However, there is a problem in the actual implementation of cloud migration and management of AWS: internal IT departments have limited knowledge and experience with regard to the services and tools involved. Business owners and IT managers don’t know how and where to start migrating to the cloud and even if they do, they are bombarded with huge expenses for just starting the implementation.In addition, there is very little talent available for AWS services onshore. If there is talent available, it can be expensive to hire onshore and business owners simply cannot afford additional costs including overheads. This is why the benefits of AWS Managed Services and its importance cannot be overlooked.AWS Managed Services helps companies operate their AWS infrastructure more easily and cost-efficiently. Whether you need to migrate data or automate analytics, AWS Managed Services lets you augment and optimize your operation skills in both existing and new AWS environments. Below, we list down the benefits of AWS Managed Services that your business can start reaping.
