Cloud Services

The advent and progress of cloud computing in recent years has resulted in a major advantage and opportunity for businesses of all sizes, to specify, design, build, test, deploy and manage applications, platforms and supporting infrastructure in completely new ways.

Business survival today depends upon IT innovation. The promise of the cloud is for the delivery of ‘service anywhere’ – services at the right place, at the right time and at the right cost. However, the impact of the cloud on traditional IT can be confusing and complex.

We understand this. Our experience and skill profile in both private and public cloud environments, across multiple platforms, puts Attenda in a unique position to play a vital role in your plans to embrace hybrid computing.

AWS Managed Service

Introduction

AWS public cloud is market-leading, recognised as a valuable resource for mid to large enterprises, to provide additional capacity quickly, or to support commodity applications. Offered with utility based pricing, you only pay for the cloud resources that are actually used.

We can help to ensure that you can gain the full business benefits of Amazon’s infrastructure as a service platform, ensuring that you can integrate, govern and manage AWS public cloud services in a hybrid delivery environment. We design, deploy and manage solutions on Amazon AWS, either independently, or as an integral part of a hybrid cloud solution; taking advantage of the unique platform capabilities, scale and presence of AWS.

Attenda’s unique managed services expertise adds an ITIL-based 24x7x365 monitoring and management framework to Amazon’s infrastructure platform, combined with Attenda’s specialist knowledge of platform and service design. Our Managed AWS Public Cloud Service provides clients with all of the benefits of the AWS infrastructure platform, combined with a coherent Service Management layer.

You may not have the required skills in-house to develop production solutions using AWS; so our AWS Managed Service is the answer. We can provide up to a 99.9% application availability SLA, based upon a geographically redundant environment, where an application is deployed across multiple AWS ‘regions’.

Our AWS Service Management layer includes architectural guidance, platform solution design, technology choice, cost optimisation, automation and orchestration, performance optimisation, enterprise-class security and release management within the production environment, Patch management, detailed monitoring and Disaster Recovery planning.
