Solution Architecture

We design AWS solutions at every level. From determining an appropriate AWS account hierarchy with Organizations and SCPs, to determining the correct VPC layout, to designing your application to take advantage of what AWS has to offer, we have the experience and skills to get it done.

CI/CD

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) accelerates application and infrastructure development by automating the workflow from a source commit to production deployment. We use tools like AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodePipeline, and AWS CodeDeploy to build out CI/CD capabilities for our clients.

Infrastructure as Code

Fully defining your infrastructure setup in code has huge benefits. We use tools like Terraform, CloudFormation, EC2 Systems Manager, and Chef (among others) to completely automate infrastructures. We apply SDLC best practices like git flow and semantic versioning to infrastructure codebases.

Training

Managing an organization’s transformation to DevOps and AWS is a challenging task. We assist clients in developing AWS Best Practices as part of their DevOps Centers of Excellence. Then we develop training materials and workshops, and then hold interactive training sessions and webinars with various teams to get them quickly up to speed.

Cloud Migration

Which Cloud Migration strategy is right for your project? We have done all kinds of migrations from a straight ‘lift and shift’ to a total rearchitecture as part of moving to AWS. We work with tools like AWS Database Migration Service and the AWS Schema Conversion Tool to migrate large datasets to AWS with minimal impact to application users.

Cost Optimization

AWS is an incredibly cost-effective solution, if provisioned correctly. However many times, over-provisioning, insufficient cataloging, or using only on-demand instances leads to higher than necessary AWS costs. We treat monthly AWS cost as a key metric and work to minimize cost through the use of AWS Cost Explorer, Spot Pricing and Reserved Instances.
