Data security is a particularly important topic for multi-tenant SaaS applications that handle customers’ sensitive data. How to securely segregate tenant data and how to provide data access to customers will vary depending on the SaaS solution’s architecture and its requirements. This post explores how SaaS vendors can build secure, scalable, and cost-effective data exchange mechanisms using SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) with AWS managed services like AWS Transfer Family.
Migrating a database to a new platform is a significant event in an application’s lifecycle. The process can impact performance, availability, and reliability to a large extent. With Cloudreach, customers will see benefits from lower cost of migration, optimization and modernization, lower administrative burden to operate core databases, and confidence in the approach and technologies used to execute the most stressful part of an infrastructure change.
The increased need to support large amounts of business data exchange, a stronger need for data governance, security, and compliance, and a proliferation of data sources has driven many companies to seek native solutions for Managed File Transfer and B2B file exchange. AWS Transfer Family Service Delivery Partners provide the expertise, proven success, and validated solutions that allow customers to move to a modernized, cloud-native MFT and B2B file exchange solution.
AWS Transfer Family provides SFTP, FTPS, and/or FTP access to Amazon S3 or Amazon Amazon EFS. It does that by providing a secure, highly available, and scalable server endpoint. You pay for the time this endpoint is enabled, and for data transfer (upload and download). Learn how this makes a multi-tenant setup where an endpoint is shared between different users (or applications), a more cost-efficient solution than having dedicated endpoints.
AWS Migration Hub Refactor Spaces is designed to help customers refactor existing applications incrementally, while increasing business agility and time to market and maximizing the business value of AWS. Follow a demonstration of an actual upgrade of a monolithic application with AWS Migration Hub Refactor Spaces, including setting up the Migration Spaces environment and refactoring two microservices of the monolithic application.
AWS offers several services and tools that existing Dell EMC VxRail customers can utilize to create a hybrid cloud infrastructure, or accelerate migrations with AWS. This post reviews the AWS native offerings and architectures that can be used to connect Dell EMC VxRail clusters to AWS, including CloudEndure, VMware Cloud on AWS, and AWS Storage Gateway. It also provides guidance around when to use these options.
Customers that have decided to embark on a cloud transformation of their applications typically need to create detailed plans on how to secure business continuity during the migration period. Learn how MYCOM OSI was able to design workload migrations for its suite of Experience Assurance and Analytics (EAA) applications from on-premises private data center environments into a SaaS model based on AWS.
Instant Cutover for High-Availability Legacy Workload Migration Using AWS Outposts, CloudEndure, and Stromasys
Numerous legacy workloads, still hosted on premises, are mission-critical and hardly interruptible. Their migration to AWS must happen quasi-transparently for their users. This post details how the combination of AWS Outposts and CloudEndure can be used to solve for this issue. We demonstrate this by migrating a Solaris machine making use of the Charon SSP emulator by Stromasys, running on standard Amazon EC2 instances and using CloudEndure.
Companies are doubling down on developing operational maturity strategies and execution postures. Planning for disaster recovery is a vital aspect of an organization’s business continuity plan. The Cutover platform, along with CloudEndure, provide a best-in-class integration for operational resilience. At the core of the platform is the Cutover runbooks feature, which can be thought of as a dynamic to-do list. This allows you to bring together the teams, tools, and tasks involved in a program of work in order.
In the financial services domain, it’s a common architecture pattern to find shared services file servers that act as SFTP file server or FTP server. Because these financial applications are not always API driven, data exchange using flat files remains the standard way to share information between applications, even when some of them have been migrated to AWS. Learn how DXC Technology addressed migrating this type of server using AWS Transfer Family, Amazon S3, and Amazon EFS.
