Architect

Our Solution Architects work closely with you to understand your requirements and architect solutions that fit your business needs, based upon scalability, fault tolerance, security and disaster recovery.

Scalability

One of the key features of AWS is the ability to scale up resources based on demand. By working with you to understand your applications needs we can design the optimum scaling configuration to maximise scalability and minimise costs. Solutions can be designed to cope with regular traffic patterns allowing you to only pay for your resources when you need them as well as coping with unexpected demand

Fault tolerance

By creating IT solutions spread across multiple data centers, along with redundancy built in to remove any single points of failure, we can maximise fault tolerance for your application whilst maintaining flexibility. Self healing architecture can replace any failed components automatically, minimising any potential downtime as a result.

Security

AWS has the most advanced security system in cloud computing. We can configure security at many levels to match your needs, including data encryption, firewalls, user access controls, audit logging and private network access. AWS is certified for ISO 9001, ISO 27001, PCI DSS and many more, making it the perfect solution for your IT needs, whatever the level of security required.

 

Backup Strategies

Our Architects can design infrastructure to meet your backup needs based upon your Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO). For example, database servers can be configured to have real time backups in place, allowing you to restore data up to the exact second data loss occurred, whereas application files can be backed up on an automated schedule or if using Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3), file versioning can be configured, allowing you to restore previous versions of files at any point.

Disaster Recovery

Whilst running applications across multiple data centers allows you to resolve many of the issues relating to disaster recovery, in the event of mission critical systems, we can also design architectures that can fail over to an alternative AWS region, allowing your systems to be up and running again quickly, even in the event of a total outage of multiple data centers
