Amazon Web Services are a set of services provided by Amazon, including S3 (Simple Storage Service) and EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), provided to developers and web service providers that allow them to take advantage of Amazon’s large datacenter infrastructure in a pay-as-you-go, infinitely scalable way.
Simple Storage Service
S3 is a scalable storage solution that makes storing files on the Internet easy. With it, you never have to worry about running out of disk space or making sure your data is redundantly accessible again!
Elastic Compute Cloud
EC2 provides powerful on-demand computing that can be scaled up or down as you need, while paying per hour for the use of virtual machine instances.
Elastic Block Storage
EBS is a way to persistently store your data with EC2. EBS is like a removable hard drive that can be reattached to any EC2 server. Snapshots are easy and incremental, so your data is safe and can be restored with a click.
How Does Joomdev AWS Consulting Work?
We can work in a wide variety of ways with you and your team. We can perform all of the server management, deployment, and support needs for you, or just provide per-incident support assistance, or a mix of the two. You’re in control with our Amazon Web Services consulting.
Though our consulting service is truly custom in nature, we do tend to follow this general workflow with a new client:
- Initial Assessment – We discuss the details of your project and provide an estimate of the expected initial engagement cost.
- In-Depth Analysis – We then examine your current infrastructure and devise a plan based on recommended best practices.
- Implementation – If you desire, we can either help your team implement the plan, or perform all the work for you.
- Support and Maintenance – We then assess your ongoing needs to devise a maintenance package that best suits your needs and budget.
Why use Joomdev for AWS Consulting?
Joomdev Solutions has been both using and helping our customers make use of Amazon’s S3 (Simple Storage Service) and EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) services since their early limited beta period in late 2006. We have an extensive amount of experience in adapting existing Internet technologies and practices into the new wave of infinitely scalable solutions that Amazon offers.
In addition, we offer a full selection of web hosting services that can both augment and enhance your EC2 deployments. Our custom mix approach increases reliability and decreases reliance on just one company or service to maximize uptime.
Common AWS Consulting Tasks
Create a Custom AMI
By creating a custom Amazon Machine Image, you can clearly define your environment and reduce future setup and migration times dramatically.
Amazon Web Service’s VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) platform allows you to fully manage your own networking resources. We recommend this for nearly every AWS deployment.
We can configure both SQL (MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Microsoft SQL) as well as No-SQL databases (MongoDB, SimpleDB, DynamoDB) for performance, durability, and availability.
Often multiple AWS services are used in concert to deliver a solution. We can help you leverage the AWS API to automate your deployment.
