Welcome to the Eplexity blog. Over the next few weeks, we will be writing several posts to help you with your cloud planning. In the meantime, please check out the following documents from Amazon Web Services:
The AWS Cloud provides a broad set of infrastructure services, such as computing power, storage options, networking and databases that are delivered as a utility: on-demand, available in seconds, with pay-as-you-go pricing. From data warehousing to deployment tools, directories to content delivery, over 90 AWS services are available. New services can be provisioned quickly, without upfront capital expense. This allows enterprises, start-ups, small and medium-sized businesses, and customers in the public sector to access the building blocks they need to respond quickly to changing business requirements. This whitepaper provides you with an overview of the benefits of the AWS Cloud and introduces you to the services that make up the platform.
The AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF) helps organizations understand how cloud adoption transforms the way they work, and it provides structure to identify and address gaps in skills and processes. Applying the AWS CAF in your organization results in an actionable plan with defined work streams that can guide your organization’s path to cloud adoption. This framework leverages our experiences and best practices in assisting organizations around the world with their cloud adoption journey.
This paper describes the AWS Well-Architected Framework, which enables customers to review and improve their cloud-based architectures and better understand the business impact of their design decisions. We address general design principles as well as specific best practices and guidance in five conceptual areas that we define as the pillars of the Well-Architected Framework.
In this whitepaper, you’ll see how you can use AWS to adapt to a changing interconnected market, and take advantage of global responsiveness and minimal barriers to innovation. AWS can help you create value for the business in addition to saving costs on infrastructure.
