With the continuous growth of business, Huge’s enterprise data center has been gradually incapable of delivering the needs of rapid business development. The development of IT is becoming the biggest blocker of Huge enterprises. In order to speed up the agility of IT and innovation among the fiercely competitive market to ensure sustainable development, Huge are always seeking great flexibility and scalability solutions in IT for their data centers. Therefore, Huge choose public cloud computing as the preferred option.
Why Amazon Web Services
Huge have tried and evaluated the services of mainstream cloud vendors. Ultimately, AWS cloud services are the most feature-rich with highly scalable capability and stability, as well as come as reasonable billing model
AWS spans across great portfolio in cloud computing, not only in computing and networking, storage and security, databases, application management, deployment management, but also IoT, Big Data, Machine Learning with abundant customer support services. Users can flexibly configure each service according to their needs. The various features of the AWS help Huge to shorten development cycle and reduce maintenance cost.
Safety and stability
AWS uses a full range of measures to ensure system security and reliability. For example, AWS IAM allows users to create and manage AWS service users and groups; Amazon CloudWatch can detect AWS cloud resources and applications running on them. Amazon VPC allows users to create their own virtual network, the different applications used to isolate the resources to ensure that the entire system is safe and reliable. This all-round security architecture and management tools for enterprises to provide a safe and stable cloud platform.
Reasonable billing mode
Compared with other cloud service providers, AWS billing model is more diversified, including "on-demand instances", "reserved examples" and "auction instance" mode. Start-up companies in the initial stage can choose "on-demand example" mode, with how much to pay, no need to invest a large amount of money. When the business evolves into a smooth phase and can estimate the general resource requirements of the system, you can choose a lower-priced "reserved instance" model that will ensure the required processing power and significantly reduce costs. Non-core business can use the 'bid instance' model to get the required processing power at a much cheaper price.
The benefits of using AWS on Huge are mainly reflected in two areas: rapid deployment and cost savings.
First of all, the biggest advantage using AWS is to shorten the product development cycle and no need to procure physical appliance nor setup DCs. Therefore it allows Huge to start Business on IT quickly, then relief their staff from underlying infra work to focus more on advance technology development and new business growth.
Secondly, AWS reduces investment in fixed capital and operating costs. Relying on AWS, the demand for Huge IT resources is based on the dynamic changes in the number of customers, without any previous investment, Huge can also use AWS management tools to manage the entire system in flexible way.
