The Benefits of Migrating to AWS

If you’re tired of managing servers, paying excessive storage costs, or being limited by your own server infrastructure, it’s time to move to the cloud.

When you migrate, you’ll be following in the footsteps of many other businesses. As long ago as 2017, 95% of IT professionals surveyed for SolarWinds IT Trends Report claimed to have migrated critical applications and IT infrastructure to the cloud within the last 12 months.

Running a cloud-based infrastructure is now considered the norm, but which cloud platform should you migrate to? The clear market leader is Amazon Web Services (AWS), which accounts for almost half the world’s public cloud infrastructure market.

If — like more than 47% of businesses worldwide — you’ve already decided you want to migrate to AWS, the Isotoma team would be happy to help. As Amazon Advanced Consulting Partners, we’re best placed to carry out your migration and support you in building a strong and secure cloud infrastructure.

If you need a little more convincing, here are just some of the benefits your company will enjoy by migrating to AWS.

Financial Freedom

With AWS, there’s no initial sign-up fee and you only ever pay for the storage or resources you need. You’re never tied into a long-term contract or forced to make upfront commitments. In contrast, you could be spending eye-watering amounts on running and maintaining your current servers.

Scalability When You Need It

In the spirit of its ‘pay as you go’ approach, AWS gives you complete control over the capacity of your infrastructure. If your workloads experience seasonal peaks and troughs, or you require less hosting capacity overnight, you can scale back your requirements, and thus costs, during those quieter periods. Then, when demand picks up, you can extend your infrastructure in order to cope with increased load.

In doing so, you can limit your expenses by only paying for what you need while also ensuring your services are strong enough to run reliably during peak periods.

Reliable Hosting

AWS is a global, tried-and-tested computing infrastructure. It props up Amazon.com’s online business, and has done so for more than a decade. During that time, it has been honed and refined to be efficient and reliable. Knowing your application is supported by one of the largest companies in the world can really help you sleep at night.

Safety and Security

On the internet and in the cloud, security is crucial, and AWS is the most secure cloud computing environment available today. It utilises an end-to-end approach that strengthens its infrastructure, combining physical, operations, and software measures to make sure that the data it stores remains secure at all times.

Your Needs Accommodated

When moving to AWS, you receive a virtual environment that caters for the software and services that your application requires. You have the ability to select the operating system, programming language, web application platform, database, and additional services you need. As a result, AWS makes the migration process easier for existing applications while still ensuring it’s possible to build new solutions.

An Easy-to-Use Platform

Whether you’re migrating an existing application or a new SaaS-based application, AWS has been built to allow application providers, vendors, and independent software vendors to securely host your software. AWS also makes it easy to monitor your application, giving you access to its management console or well-documented web services APIs, allowing you to access the AWS application hosting platform.
