8 Business Drivers for Migrating to the AWS cloud
Cost reduction is the most popular migration motivator, as retiring legacy infrastructure in favor of more efficient AWS solutions is virtually certain to bring costs down, along with many other benefits.
reduction in operational costs
Agility & Staff Productivity
Flexible AWS architecture improves business agility, while automation allows staff to increase the pace of innovation and dedicate more time to important tasks.
Migrating to AWS hardens security to help protect against attacks, define and manage access policies, and prevent unauthorized disclosure and modification using encryption and policy-driven controls.
fewer monthly security incidents
Many organizations migrate to AWS due to the end-of-life of their licensing. These companies see the cloud as a way to improve depreciating capabilities
Data Center Consolidation
Organizations can spend less time managing data centers and more time running their businesses by migrating to AWS.
Migrating to AWS helps businesses achieve digital transformation by boosting agility, enabling broader use of advanced technologies, and facilitating culture change.
Going Global Quickly
AWS customers gain access to a global network of data centers—enabling rapid, strategic scalability. AWS also makes it easier to integrate digital assets, shortening and streamlining M&A procedures.
Migrating to AWS is a more economical and practical solution for meeting the data storage and computational requirements of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence/machine learning and internet of things.

Cloud Migration 101: Separating Myths from Reality
Despite 89% of SMBs having at least one cloud tool, there’s still a great deal of hesitation among SMBs to fully commit to cloud migration. With many cloud conversations centered on enterprises—who have a completely different set of needs and resources than SMBs—that hesitation is no surprise. And the information that does exist for SMBs is often misleading at best and downright untrue at worst.

You can continuously replicate your data with high availability and consolidate databases into a petabyte-scale data warehouse.
Microsoft SQL on AWS
Run Microsoft SQL Server for as much or as little time as you need and select from a number of versions and editions. SQL Server on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) gives you complete control over every setting. Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a fully managed service that takes care of all the maintenance, backups, and patching for you.
VMware Cloud on AWS
If you’re looking for a way to migrate to the cloud with all of the advantages of VMware and AWS, look no further. We can help you expand capacity and alleviate maintenance disruptions, with all of the scalability you need to cost effectively address peaks and valleys in your compute workloads.
