Cloud Databases


We understand that moving mission-critical systems to the cloud is a challenging task, but we are here to help…

From moving your relational databases to Cloud managed services (Amazon RDS), or removing the need for expensive licensing contracts by migrating to Amazon Aurora (AWS cloud native relational DB solution) to re-factoring and modernizing your applications to use purpose build databases like Amazon DynamoDB (NoSQL), Amazon MemoryDB (MemoryDB), Amazon RedShift (Datawarehouse). Our team of experts have done it, and we can guide you on the best approach under the industry best practices, to ensure your systems are Secured, Highly Available, Cost Efficient, fine-tuned for Performance, and Operating efficiently freeing your teams from maintenance task that can be automated.

Moving your databases to the Cloud or even better having a Cloud First approach, brings with it not only the ability to deploy databases anywhere at any time, with all the scalability, reliability, flexibility and cost savings of the Cloud, enabling the applications and IT teams to innovate and get to market faster than ever, but additionally, by utilizing the managed services offerings of the Cloud, helps to drastically improve the operation and maintenance, by automating the routine tasks needed on a traditional datacenter, like backups, upgrades, security patches, and OS activities.

Cloud Databases

What is Amazon RDS (Relational Database Service)?

A managed database service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) designed to simplify the setup, operation, and scaling of relational databases in the cloud. It provides a reliable, scalable, and highly available database solution without the overhead of traditional database management.

  • Support for Multiple Database Engines: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQL Server, and MariaDB.

  • Automated Backups: RDS provides automated backups of your database, enabling you to restore your data to any point in time within a specified retention period.

  • High Availability: RDS offers features like Multi-AZ deployments for failover support, which helps ensure that your database remains available even in the event of hardware failures or other issues.

  • Scalability: RDS provides options for both vertical and horizontal scalability to accommodate changing workloads. Additionaly users can choose from a variety of instance types with different compute and memory configurations to match their application’s needs.

  • Security: Encryption at rest and in transit, network isolation through Amazon VPC, integration with IAM (Identity and Access Management) roles for authentication.

  • Automated Maintenance and Patching: AWS takes care of routine maintenance tasks like applying patches and updates to the database engine, allowing you to focus on your application.

  • Monitoring and Metrics: Amazon RDS offers monitoring tools like Amazon CloudWatch, which helps you track the performance of your database instance and set up alarms for specific events.
