Modernize today with Containers on AWS
For organizations beginning the journey to modernization, containers continue to gain momentum as the go-to solution for developers to package and deploy applications more efficiently. Containers provide a portable, consistent, and lightweight software environment for applications to easily run and scale anywhere.
This e-book offers practical instruction for getting started with containers on AWS today. With proven tools for infrastructure provisioning, orchestration, security, networking, automation, and monitoring, AWS provides all the solutions needed to make containerization seamless.
Determining the total cost of ownership: Comparing serverless and server-based technologies
The popularity of a serverless strategy is growing because it provides cost savings through hands-off infrastructure management, allowing organizations to redirect IT budget and development resources from operations to innovation. With a serverless operational model, there are no servers to provision, patch, or manage and there is no software to install, maintain, or operate.
Deloitte’s latest study discovers how your organization can significantly lower its total cost of ownership (TCO) by choosing to go serverless. Learn exactly how serverless helps you:
- Increase agility with flexible on-demand consumption
- Lower application development and maintenance costs
- Reduce time to market by deploying faster and more often
Guide to Windows modernization
According to IDC and Principled Technologies, rehosting your SQL database to SQL Server on Amazon EC2 Windows delivers significant benefits, including:
- 98% reduction in unplanned downtime
- 71% faster deployment
- 26% higher developer productivity
Read our Guide to .NET Application Modernization to explore rehosting and other proven approaches our customers are using to modernize their Windows-based applications. Learn how you can power the evolution of your applications with proven AWS tools, services and support.
Letting the use case drive the database choice
Building modern cloud-based applications often comes with a need for handling widely varying requirements for scale, performance, querying, data management, reliability, and more, which has driven the development of database solutions that can complement the traditional, widely used relational database engine. In this report, veteran industry analyst Tony Baer from dbInsight explains how organizations no longer need to pick one database and compromise their needs; they can select several databases, built for different optimized use cases, to achieve their business goals. Tony details how all types of businesses, from e-commerce stores to online language apps, are using AWS Database offerings, including Amazon Aurora, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon ElastiCache, Amazon DocumentDB, and more.
With this paper:
- Learn how digital transformation, and the growing need for storing and organizing data, have changed the database landscape.
- Understand how different AWS Database services are optimized to help address business problems.
- Plan your organization’s database strategy with case studies from Duolingo, Zulily, Caresyntax, and more.
