Why Migrate with eWay Corp?
With data growing at an exponential rate and the need for access your information from anywhere at the same pace, in-house servers containing the database and the time working to run them are under immense pressure to perform just as well as their counterparts in the cloud. Local managed infrastructures have become too costly in both time, budget, and management to scale with your business’s potential.
We also understand that you may be worried about the time and cost to migrate your entire database to the cloud in a manner that will minimize downtime in the process, continue maintenance, and regularly update infrastructure for optimal use.
By leveraging AWS, we can help you manage costs through a scalable interface with solutions such as Amazon Aurora and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS). These solutions can provide you the flexibility and scalability to manage your database services that will reduce your operational overhead beyond simply going far below the costs of on-premise infrastructure. We will also:
- Minimize any downtime during the migration process with our back up management
- Create a scalable environment to keep costs at exactly the compute capacity you need at any point in real-time
- Free up time for your IT team to focus on advancing your organization’s goals.
Managed Database Services on AWS
AWS offers managed database services in the form of Amazon RDS, a scalable, easy to set up relational database that can leverage any of seven familiar database engines, including Amazon Aurora (PostgreSQL), Amazon Aurora (MySQL), PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, and Microsoft® SQL Server. Amazon Aurora is a secure, high performance, and highly available MySQLand PostgreSQL-compatible relational database engine. Amazon Aurora is fully managed and is designed to provide up to five times better performance than MySQL and three times the performance of PostgreSQL with the security, availability, and reliability of a commercial database, but at one-tenth the cost. Amazon RDS provides administration for Amazon Aurora by handling routine database tasks like provisioning, patching, backup, recovery, failure detection, and repair.
Benefits of Migrating Your Database to AWS
AWS services are built on an architecture designed to enable organizations to elastically scale their database’s compute and storage resources quickly, helping them quickly ingest large volumes of data into their database. Organizations can also launch one or more Read Replicas to offload read traffic from your primary database instance.
Amazon RDS enables you to run your database instances in Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), logically isolating your database and enabling you to connect your existing IT infrastructure via an encrypted VPN. Amazon Aurora and Amazon RDS enable you to encrypt data at rest and in-transit, and integrate with identity management systems to control access to your data.
help you use AWS services in the right way to create a highly available architecture for your databases. Amazon Aurora and Amazon RDS run on the same highly available and secure infrastructure and Availability Zones as other AWS services.
Both Amazon Aurora and Amazon RDS are easy to use, fully managed database services. Managed database services offered by AWS are designed to reduce the amount of time developers and database architects need to spend provisioning and maintaining databases. Since AWS handles the maintenance, including installing software, patching, and upgrading infrastructure, your developers and database architects can shift their focus to projects that provide additional value for your organization, by developing new applications and advanced analytics.
AWS database services are compatible with a wide variety of database engines. This delivers not only a wide degree of functionality but helps avoid lock-in, enabling organizations to be flexible with their database solutions.
