EFutures has been a partner of Amazon Web Services (AWS) for over 7 years, providing a range of high quality services for many clients both internationally and locally. The highly trained cloud services team offers round the clock support and are more than capable of providing assistance for any AWS requirements.

AWS offers a secure cloud service platform, with ample computing power, database storage and a myriad of other services that are vital to aiding a business scale and grow. To keep it short, here’s why businesses should join AWS and a few of the benefits it holds in store:

Pay only for the server requirements needed, with no long-term commitments or upfront expenses

AWS gives users the ability to adjust (scale up/down) their setup to meet their changing business requirements and even terminate AWS accounts whenever required. Businesses can chase revenue goals and reduce costs, by taking on new challenges and responding to beneficial business opportunities as and when they arise.

The AWS Cloud is constantly extending its span

The Cloud currently covers 54 availability zones within 18 geographic regions, with plans for growth (12 more availability zones) already in motion. 

This also means is that AWS prices will continue to decrease due to economies of scale; as their client base and cloud consumption grows they will have to expand their infrastructure to accommodate this increase.

Allowing users to select the specific operating system, database system, web application system, and programming language

AWS also enables users to load all the software and services their application requires. 

This not only makes the migration process for existing applications swift and convenient, but also reserves the options for building new ones. While streamlining the entire process of development for teams, it also eliminates the requirement for any additional products or services.

Security is a huge advantage when using the AWS server

EFutures clients work in different industries, ranging from healthcare to retail, and are very particular about data security. 

AWS proves to be an invaluable asset because of its security features such as: authentication protocols, authorisation, audit trials for users and data integrity. 

The AWS server uses an end-to-end model to keep data secure, with several security certifications like ISO 27001, HIPAA, PCI DSS Level 1, FISMA Moderate, and SAS 70 Type II.

Deploying SaaS is much faster on AWS compared to other servers

Where standard deployment usually takes 2-3 days to acquire and test, AWS cuts the deployment phase down to just a few minutes.
