Our goal as a company is to ensure that our services are efficient and fast to load. After years of using traditional web hosts, we finally made the switch to Amazon Web Services and we have not looked back. Our biggest issues with traditional web hosting was the inability to store large amounts of data and the lack of scalability for our different applications. AWS allows us to run our services more efficiently and without absorbing the high cost of owning servers. For our business it's really about solving 3 problems:
- Scaling - The solution should be able to allow us to scale effectively without the hassles of setting up new servers.
- Cost effective - The solution should allow us to manage our costs effectively so that none of our clients have to pay more for our services.
- Integration - The solution should integrate well into our development teams coding and not slow them down.
Amazon Web Services has done these for us.
