AWS – Amazon Web Services
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a cloud computing platform. It is one of the most popular cloud services providers.
AWS is comprehensive, easy to use and provides customers with a wide variety of cloud services ranging from virtual machining, file storage, email sending services, media processing and AI, to name but a few! It’s processes and workflows are well established.
AWS also provides third-party software such as Microsoft Windows, SQL Server, Atlassian Jira, all with built-in licensing fees which removes the licensing administration overhead.
P92 has been working with AWS for approaching 10 years and we make full use of the vast choice of services for all businesses and technical challenges that the platform offers.
Generally, we deploy in the region where our customers and their customers are based so that we can best comply with local and global data protection laws.
In our most intensive AWS project yet, we helped our customer to develop their CRM system to include such features as system generated emails for users and the monitoring of campaign effectiveness.
To achieve the required infrastructure needed to support the workflows and user experience desired, we set up several servers, across multiple organisational accounts that would maintain truly separate entities for security purposes, whilst joining to another root AWS account.
During the delivery of the project we used several AWS services such as EC2 (Elastic Cloud Computing), SES (Simple Email Service) and RDS (Relational Database Service).
