Reduces Data Centres
Traditional infrastructure is characterised by a large initial investment, followed by operational costs. Facilities, power, cooling, upgrades and repairs, equipment redundancy, and dedicated human resources are recurrent expenses, independent of the level of activity. In contrast, there are no investment costs in the AWS cloud. Following the "pay as you go" maxim, operating costs are solely dependent on the activity level. You only pay for what you use, and when you use it.
Reduces Operating Costs
With the migration of information to the cloud, it is possible to benefit from a dynamic escalation service, as more services are needed when the operation requires it and, in contrast, they also may be subject to reduction or removal when not needed. This reactive component allows you to cope with fluctuating organisational needs and thus balance costs as the use of resources in the AWS cloud automatically adjusts to needs, increasing or decreasing in real time. Therefore, there is no need to predict capacity, no resource saturation, and no wasted capacity.
A migration to the AWS cloud helps companies improve data accessibility and availability, while maintaining information security standards through constant updating and monitoring of security mechanisms. The AWS cloud advocates the use of encryption for both data transport and storage. The implemented architectures restrict accessibility to what is strictly necessary by minimising the points of failure. Continuous monitoring of resource usage combined with a versatile alarm mechanism enables the prevention and detection of intrusions.
Cloud migration services simplify the complexity of installation and configuration of physical infrastructure and network. On-site operations can take days, months, hours or minutes. In practice, it saves implementation and maintenance time and resources, which can be allocated to other business areas responsible for the growth of the operation.
Optimised Operational Efficiency
Work teams will experience new levels of productivity. With AWS cloud services, collaboration between teams is possible, and physical presence in a specific location will not be necessary to implement, update or correct a service or a machine, which is why it is a more flexible solution, since it allows the reduction or extinction of unnecessary tasks, freeing the work team for other tasks of greater value for the project.
Through information migration, you can implement applications and services faster than the traditional process involving the purchase of servers, installation of the operating system and their placement in a data centre. In contrast to cloud hosting, in the conventional data centre hosting model, IT teams are faced with the inevitability of predicting future needs. This forecasting exercise is a process that entails costs of unused resources or saturated resources. With AWS cloud migration services, resources automatically adjust to your company's needs, increasing or decreasing with the volume of demand.
In the classic model, high availability is based on the redundancy of equipment or resources, with the inherent costs. In the AWS cloud model, the health status of resources is continuously monitored and they are automatically replaced in case of failure without interruption of services. Again, following the "pay as you go" philosophy, the replacement of a resource does not incur additional costs.
