For more than a decade now, we have been testing all sorts of cloud tech here at c-wise – storage, backup solutions, IaaS/PaaS provided by different vendors. As a result of this trial and error, we have found the things most worthy of adopting and sticking with. Our #1 spot is shared by Office365 with its vast capabilities of supporting decentralized, secure and highly available business processes and Amazon Web Services (AWS) with its countless possibilities of creating, automating and monitoring all kinds of enormously complex yet cost-effective infrastructures – from the smallest of WordPress installations to large-scale architectures consisting of hundreds of instances, load balancers, lambda functions and databases.
You know how they say everything is both easier and more cost-effective in the cloud? That’s true, but only if the cloud infrastructure has been properly planned, deployed and maintained. Then it actually surpasses most of the on-premise deployments with comparable characteristics.
They also say that passion is the secret ingredient to greatness and we actually have first-hand experience in how that works. The topics we are particularly excited about include: serverless architectures and CI/CD; the challenge to achieve zero-downtime / zero-efforts continuous deployments; the mastery of Infrastructure-as-Code and the buzz of Security by Design. These make our hearts beat and particularly eager when we have to deliver an on-prem to cloud migration (e.g. local Exchange to Exchange Online / Office365, shared-hosting web applications to AWS serverless architecture and so on.) They say enthusiasm is infectious, let’s discuss how we can help your business with much more than pure enthusiasm!
When it comes to cloud tech, we mostly use:
