Amazon Web Services (AWS) has rewritten the rule book on all things Cloud. There’s no SLA, no contracts and no boundaries. Capacity scales with usage, so you don’t have to decide up-front how much storage or bandwidth you’ll need. And you’re not limited by cost either, because you only pay for what you actually use. You get ultimate scalability for the lowest possible cost.

So, there’s no need to plan for anything up front, you can just ‘deploy and go’, right?

Unfortunately, no.

In fact, there’s never been an IT opportunity that offers so many benefits to the SME, but is so easy to get wrong. And the results of getting it wrong could be impressive: huge bills, fragmented and incoherent infrastructure and even security breaches. Difficult to come back from that.

The key to getting it right is really understanding what you’re getting into and, because we want people to get it right because AWS is what we do, we’ve written a report that sets it all out in black and white.

Get your AWS strategy right first time

In the report ‘Are you ready for Cloud’, we tackle seven areas that are affected by migration AND are key to your AWS strategy:

  • Cost
  • Scalability
  • Uptime and SLAs
  • Security
  • Agile goals
  • In-house expertise
  • DevOps

In our usual, down-to-earth manner, you’ll get a frank presentation of the facts and what that means for your deployment. You’ll learn what you need to know and have in place BEFORE you begin any AWS migration.

For example, you’ll learn:

  • why hosting your application in the world’s most secure cloud doesn’t let you off the hook
  • to let go of the SLA safety net – and what to do instead
  • why planning to fail is actually essential in Agile development
  • that your staff might need more help than you previously thought
  • what devops actually means – when infrastructure IS code.

AWS will save you money. But only if you make the right decisions at the start. Learn what you must consider for successful deployment in the free report ‘Are you ready for Cloud?’
