Amazon Web Services cloud consulting
In many cases, the businesses want to perform AWS cloud migration in hope of reaping the benefits that AWS offers with it wide range of features. However, sometimes the best solution is not to go neck-deep with AWS cloud, due to high Amazon cloud services prices. IT Svit provides the required consulting to determine which AWS services are essential for your product, and what can safely be replaced with open-source alternatives.

Our ample experience with configuring and running Amazon web services for our customers resulted in a wide range of turnkey solutions for typical challenges that multiple customers encounter while building their AWS cloud infrastructure. Being able to solve these issues quickly and proactively helps us to greatly shorten the time-to-market for new product features and provide reliable infrastructure management services.
Managed Amazon Cloud Computing Services
Amazon Web Services is the most popular cloud service provider worldwide, and many businesses want to move to this platform or start their new project there. However, in order to use AWS cloud infrastructure in the most cost-efficient way, one must know all the nooks and crannies of AWS services in order to ensure scalability, performance and reliability of the system.
The standard approach to dealing with this challenge is trying to hire a software engineer with DevOps expertise in-house. However, this approach suffers from all the downsides and risks of any other recruitment: skilled professionals are hard to find, hiring them takes a long time, they cost a lot, and if they quit, the project is in grave danger. This is why the companies worldwide begin to search for alternatives, in order to save their time and money.
There are three major approaches to starting using Amazon cloud services quickly:
- hiring AWS support engineers / partners to do the job for you
- doing everything yourself using an extensive AWS knowledgebase
- hiring a Managed Services Provider to configure AWS services
Hiring AWS support engineers or partners for cloud infrastructure design and implementation
This is a viable and quite popular approach, as who can know AWS features better than their own engineers and certified partners? Many companies go this way and they receive multiple benefits of this choice:
- in-depth understanding of AWS features,
- quick design and implementation of relevant systems,
- using the most appropriate AWS services and products
- end-to-end solutions built on AWS cloud infrastructure.
However, there is quite a large downside to this approach. AWS support engineers, as well as AWS certified partners, are prone to use only AWS offers and features to build the cloud infrastructure for your projects — especially because the range of Amazon cloud services is huge and covers all the needs your project might possibly have. Thus said, this naturally results in vendor lock-in, as you cannot migrate from AWS to another cloud platform easily, because you will have to rebuild the infrastructure from scratch with the new cloud provider.
In addition, many AWS features come in bundles, and not all of their components might be needed for your project. Thus said, you will likely have to pay for the services and features you do not actually need, unless you know the open-source tools and systems to replace them with. But in this case — why pay AWS support engineers at all?
Building an AWS cloud infrastructure yourself
Amazon Web Services provides an extensive knowledgebase describing all the aspects of operating AWS offers, tools and components. Any startup can learn this goldmine of knowledge to build and run the systems they need without ever contacting AWS support engineers. This will help save lots of money in theory, but you will have to invest lots of time to get a firm grip of AWS knowledgebase and entrepreneur’s time cost a lot.
In real life, not a single knowledgebase can describe the whole range of use cases for AWS services. Most likely, your project will be conventional enough to use several standard AWS tools — but it will be innovative enough to require filling the gaps with third-party open-source tools, or even custom modules (which are not described in the knowledgebase, of course). Thus said, you will need a decent DevOps and AWS architecture expertise to build the system required to run your project. And unless you have such an expertise within your team — the best way is to hire experienced professionals from a Managed Services Provider, like IT Svit.
Ordering AWS Cloud infrastructure from a reliable MSP
IT Svit combines the benefits of both previous approaches and does not have their downsides. We house a team of skilled DevOps engineers, who have an in-depth knowledge of both AWS cloud infrastructure and the systems the startups typically need for their projects. We know the patterns for the most commonly used web app workflows, and have a profound knowledge of the open-source DevOps tools that are best for using these patterns.
Working with IT Svit will provide you with an instant access to skilled professionals, who will build modular cloud infrastructure using only the most relevant AWS services, and replacing the rest with open-source tools like Terraform, Kubernetes, Docker, ELK stack, Prometheus + Grafana, Jenkins, Ansible, Nagios, Icinga, Sumologic, Datadog, Gitlab CI, etc. This will ensure that you avoid vendor lock-in and get the project one as quickly as possible.
AWS cloud consulting
Sometimes the startups come to us after trying to build AWS cloud infrastructure for their projects themselves and messing it up somewhere. In these cases, we provide AWS cloud consulting and help these businesses optimize their cloud systems and workflows, to make them manageable, transparent, cost-efficient and well-performing.
In addition, accomplishing multiple similar projects resulted in us having built a huge array of turnkey solutions, meaning we can build an AWS infrastructure quickly using building blocks from previous projects, instead of reinventing the wheel every time. This also increases project efficiency and greatly reduces time-to-market for your products and services.
