Are you using your AWS solution to its full potential?

In these days of “there’s an app for everything”, businesses are increasingly looking for ways to manage their environments better. With Amazon Web Services (AWS) – particularly when it is managed by an accredited partner – development, deployment and management are not only easier, but the entire DevOps environment is more cost effective as well.

A mix of compute services, storage, application service and system management are all available in the Amazon AWS.

AWS provides on-demand access to scalable web and application servers, storage, databases, content delivery, cache, search, and other application services that make it easier to build and run apps.

Agnostic platform

AWS is a language and operating system agnostic platform. Companies can therefore choose the development platform or programming model that makes the most sense for them. And, because different parts of an app require different compute, memory, and networking configurations, AWS offers many instance types with different amounts of compute, memory, I/O performance, and graphics hardware. AWS offers both Linux and Windows instances and provides root access to each one.

Automatic load balancing and auto-scaling

AWS monitors the load on an application and can add extra servers if needed, and distribute work across a set of servers.  Automated scaling makes it easier to administer applications with variable demand. When traffic increases, the auto scaling service will launch additional instances to respond to the demand, while the elastic load balancing service will distribute the increased load across the instances. When demand decreases, auto scaling can shutdown idle instances, saving money.

Managed services makes cloud easy

Many companies are unaware that there are consulting services they could be leveraging for their AWS solutions. As an AWS Certified Partner, EOH has the training, certifications, successful implementations and references to provide consulting services to help customers of all sizes design, architect, build, migrate, and manage their applications and workloads on AWS.

EOH does the integration, testing, monitoring, management and automation of the cloud platform, fine-tuning the environment to get the best possible ROI. In addition, EOH offers its customers a single pane of glass for hybrid cloud and multi-cloud provisioning.
