How to get the most out of your Amazon Web Services?

How to get the most out of your Amazon Web Services?

Amazon Web Services

Have you ever noticed that Amazon Web Services is not only cost effective, but helps organizations achieve scalability and reduced time to market. However, you may notice that these benefits can be lost in its IT infrastructure.

But by incorporating Amazon Web Services with SteelConnect it becomes a revolutionary application-defined SD-WAN solution.

Benefits of Riverbed SteelConnect + AWS:

  • Performance: Riverbed SteelConnect delivers high performance – even if network conditions change – for any application (encrypted or conventional, on-premises or cloud-based) to any user (mobile or static).
  • Agility: Simple workflows with intelligent automation reduce IT turnaround time. Setting up a cloud instance takes minutes in AWS and establishing a secure, high-performance mesh network takes another few minutes with Riverbed.
  • Efficiency: The ability to seamlessly leverage hybrid WANs to connect the user to the cloud improves network efficiency. Simple management increases overall IT efficiency.

AWS releases tool for migrating on-premises apps to the cloud


The Server Migration Service was created to simplify the process of incremental replication of virtual machines from their on-premises infrastructure to Amazon’s cloud.

IT administrators install a connector that will analyze their virtualized server environment and collect information about the instances they’re using. AWS Management Console allows for viewing all the operating connectors and inspect the inventory of virtualized servers running in an environment. Adminstrators can then create and manage replication jobs to take the contents of a VM and reproduce it as an Amazon Machine Image stored in the AWS Elastic Block Store (EBS) service.

Replications can be run on an ongoing schedule and each incremental replication will sync only what has been changed to minimize network bandwidth use. Furthermore it is possible to spin up new instance that should be a duplicate of what is running on-premises. This can be used either for testing the replicated VM or for getting it running in production.

Server Migration Service is available now. Works with regions in northern Virginia, Ireland, and Sydney. Service itself doesn’t carry a charge, but customers must pay for $3 storage used for the move and EBS snapshots that result from the migration process.
