Amazon's list of cloud-based applications is extensive, ranging from cloud formation, analytics and content delivery to data storage and intelligence, database management, and deployment. AWS consultants at EasyStepIn are deeply knowledgeable about a wide range of Amazon cloud computing services, including Redshift - the big data management arm of the AWS cloud.

Cloud computing has become one of the most discussed IT paradigms of recent years. It builds on many of the advances in the IT industry over the past decade and presents significant opportunities for organizations to shorten time to market and reduce costs. With cloud computing, organizations can consume shared computing and storage resources rather than building, operating and improving infrastructure on their own. The speed of change in markets creates significant pressure on the enterprise IT infrastructure to adapt and deliver. Cloud computing provides fresh solutions to address these changes. As defined by Gartner, “Cloud computing is a style of computing where scalable and elastic ITenabled capabilities are delivered as a service to external customers using Internet technologies.”

Cloud computing enables organizations to obtain a flexible, secure, and cost-effective IT infrastructure, in much the same way that national electric grids enable homes and organizations to plug into a centrally managed, efficient, and cost-effective energy source. When freed from creating their own electricity, organizations were able to focus on the core competencies of their business and the needs of their customers. Likewise, cloud computing liberates organizations from devoting precious people and budget to activities that don’t directly contribute to the bottom line while still obtaining IT infrastructure capabilities. These capabilities include computing power, storage, databases, messaging, and other building block services that run business applications. When coupled with a utility-style pricing and business model, cloud computing promises to deliver an enterprise-grade IT infrastructure in a reliable, timely, and cost-effective manner.
