Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers over 200 products and services that are available worldwide.
AWS is probably most well-known for its cloud services - and rightly so since AWS owns 33% of all cloud. Many businesses have already switched to the cloud, with more planning to do so in the near future. No wonder: cloud computing is more flexible, more reliable, and more secure than on-premise solutions, and it takes care of maintaining and updating systems. With so many cloud providers and platforms available on the market, it might be difficult to choose the best for your organization. In this article, we will show you the benefits AWS cloud brings to businesses so you can confidently implement it in your company.
The following are some of the biggest benefits of the AWS cloud.
The first things most businesses consider when switching to the cloud are, reasonably, costs. We all want a high-quality solution, but do not want it to break the bank. This is often taken into consideration: in fact, many cloud service providers (such as AWS) allow variable resource provisioning. This means that enterprises can scale up or down based on their current requirements. In the AWS cloud, you may control resources at a granular level and use numerous cost-cutting measures to lower your bill.
Another facet of the cost discussion relates to on-site servers. These imply the presence of an IT staff, to monitor the hardware and upgrade the software, as well as a server room to store the machines. Needless to say, this is very expensive and not feasible for small and medium businesses. Here’s where AWS cloud comes in: by removing the on-premise hardware and staff, a business can become 40% more cost-effective than before.
AWS can handle any business need, and allows companies to expand as they wish without having to worry about service interruptions. This is thanks to AWS’s unlimited server capacity, which is used by more than a million entities all over the world. Choosing cloud is better for your business because you don’t have to worry about hard drive failures. Hard drive failures can be caused by limited storage: this is a completely avoidable risk that no business should ignore.
AWS offers an exceptional security framework, virtually as well as physically. Their Availability Zones allow you to remain flexible even in the face of most failure modes, including natural catastrophes. A skilled security crew is on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week in AWS server centers, and with CloudTrail users can keep track of tasks done. Many big companies use AWS - Dow Jones and NASDAQ are among them. For obvious reasons these companies cannot compromise on security - and neither should you.
Speed and agility have never been more important for businesses, and AWS rises up to the challenge. Users in AWS can request and receive more server space in a matter of minutes. There are also numerous methods available to reduce the amount of time spent orchestrating, like autoscaling, elastic load balancing, storage speed increase, and access to high-performance databases.
There are many options you can choose from when looking for a cloud provider for your business. But we believe your business deserves the best, and the best is most certainly the global leader in the cloud computing industry - Amazon Web Services.
