How it has helped lowering hosting costs for start-ups?
AWS has helped start-ups to scale quickly, go to market faster, control costs and stay lean.
With AWS enterprises can replace upfront capital cost with low variable cost and spend only on the resources that are used. For Start-ups AWS has proven to be more cost-effective than on-premises environments in both the short, and long, term. Amazon EC2 provides many flexible pricing options to help start-ups take advantage and reduce overall IT costs, including On-Demand, Spot, and Reserved Instances. Use more and save more option of AWS offers volume discounts and custom pricing to customers for high volume projects with unique requirements.

Our Managed AWS Solutions render a comprehensive portfolio of products and services to support and manage our customer base. Combined with the industry standards and best practices and range of tools, we have delivered AWS managed solutions across many domains. Our services cover the following key areas:
Our experienced cloud consultants perform a full assessment of the enterprises current environment, its existing infrastructure and hosting set up, performance and security requirements and application deployment. We identify gaps and recommend improvements; we then set up a PoC to prototype and validate the project requirements. All feedback and findings are noted and implemented in the final project.
We offer a systematic and a phase-driven step-by-step strategy for migrating applications to the cloud. We identify the framework/library/SDK that works best for integrating with AWS services. We cater to both application migration as well as data migration. We understand the different options for moving the data and accordingly we utilize the Amazon S3 for migration. For moving the applications we leverage the Forklift strategy – where we migrate an existing application into the cloud with few code changes, or the Hybrid strategy option where we take only some parts of an application and move them to the cloud, the rest of them are in its place.
We monitor the performance of the cloud applications in order to proactively identify any performance issues and help you diagnose the root causes so you take appropriate actions. We monitor AWS usage bill, Service API usage reports, Amazon S3 or Amazon CloudFront access logs periodically. We also perform:
We leverage Auto Scaling options that AWS provides which enables to set conditions for scaling up or down the Amazon EC2 usage. We also perform the following:
