4 Benefits of AWS from iomart Amazon Web Services has been a game changer for the IT industry, providing a flexible and affordable route to the cloud for any organization. The many services, features and benefits available can meet requirements from the simplest to the most complex. The modular nature of AWS solutions means that customers can pick and choose exactly what they need, exactly when they need it. However, it s just this ease of access and breadth of available and variable services that can cause headaches for IT departments. Individual teams can very easily spin up AWS servers as required, potentially breaching corporate data policies, or unnecessarily duplicating time and effort by failing to use pre-existing cloud resources. Additionally, users may find that the configuration they have built isn t the most effective or efficient for their actual requirements. Using iomart to manage your AWS services ensures you re maximizing the benefits of using the platform and have a solution that perfectly meets your needs.

5 Use Cases HYBRID SOLUTIONS - the key benefit of iomart s agnostic approach to our cloud platform services is that we can offer not only the type of cloud that a customer needs; be that managed, public or private, but that we can offer hybrid cloud solutions too, with the customer s infrastructure spanning multiple different types. The AWS public cloud solution is perfect for many requirements including start-ups, testing and development and handling fluctuating demands, while in many instances it s important for other aspects of the infrastructure, such as customer data, to be held in more secure private clouds. iomart can offer a blended hybrid cloud solution to perfectly suit. TEMPORARY SERVERS need to test new applications away from your main platform? Running a marketing campaign or launching a new product and anticipating an upsurge in web traffic? With AWS, it s easy to spin up a virtual server to cope with these temporary requirements. Once complete, the server can be switched off until it s needed again. Customers only pay for the compute power they use. DEVELOPERS with an extensive range of options available, AWS is a perfect platform to enable developers to spin up the services they need to get their products to market. The accessibility and availability of AWS allows developers to carry out product testing, debug code and the low cost nature gives the freedom to experiment and perfect. BIG DATA industries with Big Data requirements can benefit from using AWS to meet their needs. From academia, to developers and companies with bulk storage requirements, organisations can use AWS to perform big data analytics and meet the challenges of the increasing volume, variety and rapidly changing nature of digital data. AWS is flexible and agile, scaling to meet demand as required cost effectively and with rapid response times. APPLICATION HOSTING some of the biggest web success stories host their applications on AWS, including Netflix, Pinterest, Reddit and Spotify, and it s easy to see why. Designed to allow application providers, ISVs and vendors to easily manage and configure their apps, the services are also reliable, secure and scalable, providing high performance for the end customers.
