Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing refers to a variety of services ranging from virtual computing to storing and accessing data and other computing services over the internet. Many on-demand and scalable services such as processing, storage, networking, and applications are part of Cloud Computing.
One of the most common uses of Cloud Computing is to run heavy processing workloads on powerful data centers, which are virtually infinite in terms of capacity. Scalability and economies of scale make such solutions highly cost-effective. High availability is another benefit that you can depend on for mission-critical applications.

Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cost savings are one of the main advantages of Cloud Computing. In addition to the direct savings from not having to maintain your own data center and infrastructure, companies can also greatly benefit from all the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) available with Cloud Computing.
Cloud Computing offers services like AI, Machine Learning, Image processing, and authentication, which would otherwise require companies to incur substantial costs to develop them on their own. These services are available as SaaS solutions and empower applications that use Micro-services architecture.
Scalability can be considered the most beneficial of all the advantages of Cloud Computing. It provides a myriad of possibilities in comparison to in-house data centers where any form of scalability requires hardware changes. Some service providers even allow switching off certain services during off-peak periods.
Business Continuity is critical, as any downtime can be fatal to the business and its customers. Cloud Computing solutions cover many scenarios, such as natural disasters and force majeure. This is done by redundantly hosting data and applications in multiple geographically dispersed locations.
Personal computing is another area that has been benefitted from Cloud Computing. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) has brought security, performance, and continuity to personal computing in a manner never seen before. VDI solutions provide a solution to the menace of Ransomware that has plagued both organizations and individual users.

Migrating to the Cloud

Despite the many benefits offered by Cloud Computing, many organizations incur high costs and face many difficulties in migrating their data and applications to the Cloud. This is mainly due to the fact that many applications are monolithic and bulky in nature and are not suited for the Cloud.
The preferred architecture for Cloud Computing is Micro-services. Converting legacy applications to Micro-services or components that can be migrated to the Cloud can be both costly and time-consuming.
The Cloud migration process involves high risk, and it can completely disrupt your data and applications if it is not planned correctly. You need to determine three factors that will shape your Cloud migration. The first of these is the migration strategy.
Many organizations choose to completely replace their applications when migrating to the Cloud due to this reason. However, there are many ways of moving applications to the Cloud. The most common of these is the “Lift and Shift” method, where applications are simply moved to cloud-based infrastructure without any change. While this method can be cost-effective, it restricts organizations from fully leveraging the benefits of Cloud Computing.
Micro-services allow organizations to decentralize their applications. So components are platform and language independent, meaning that they can be gradually refactored and migrated to the Cloud one component at a time. This strategy is the most recommended approach as it allows organizations to integrate business changes to their applications during the refactoring process.
Re-platforming is another common approach in which applications are re-written in a Cloud compliant format. While this approach requires the most effort, it allows organizations to leverage the power of Cloud Computing fully.
Once the strategy has been decided, the next step is to select the deployment model. This refers to the type of cloud solution which could range from a single cloud provider to a multi-cloud solution. The Micro-service architecture allows you to deploy each component in the Cloud service that is most suited for it.
You will also need to determine whether you are comfortable with the public Cloud or whether you prefer a private or hybrid cloud, which offers additional security and features.
Lastly, you will need to determine the service model. The available options are SaaS, PasS, and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). These decisions can make or break your Cloud Computing success. So don’t take a chance, talk to the experts at Cloud Computing Technologies.

Data Analytics

Data Analytics is the study of raw data in view of identifying trends and converting it into meaningful information that can facilitate decision making. It is highly dependent on processes and algorithms. This has lead to a convergence between data analysis and cloud computing.

Kubernetes

The popularity of Kubernetes has made the term almost synonymous with Containers. Kubernetes are an open-source system for deploying, scaling and managing containerized applications. The open-sourced nature of Kubernetes makes it compatible with many different types of infrastructure, such as on-premise, hybrid, or public clouds.

Data Science

Data Science is the superset of Data Analysis. In contrast to Analytics, Data Science focuses on analyzing large data sets for insights through techniques such as predictive analysis and machine learning. It is the broader study of data to arrive at insights regarding the unknown facets of data sets.

Cloud Enabled “Work at Home” Workforce

cloud enabled remote workforce, resilience to what if scenario, secure remote worker

Work culture has seen a paradigm shift in the recent past with the introduction of reliable and highly cost-effective cloud services. An increasing number of businesses are encouraging a cloud enabled remote workforce and bringing your own devices (BYOD).

The recent COVID-19 pandemic has made working remotely more of a necessity than an option. Lockdowns and social distancing have caused many offices to be deserted, but business continues as usual.

Are you wondering how this is possible?

It’s all thanks to world-class cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services. Let’s see what AWS has to offer.

Setting up a “Work at Home” platform

As a Public Sector Partner of AWS, Cloud Computing Technologies (CCT) recommends the following process for setting up AWS solutions, which is now easier than ever.

1. AWS Terraform Landing Zone (TLZ) Accelerator

Terraform Landing Zone (TLZ), commonly known as Terraform is an AWS accelerator. It helps customers to build secure AWS Landing Zones in the least possible time while following AWS best practices. Terraform automates provisioning of Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and other solutions, providing secure infrastructure within an automated, self-service portal.
The main benefit of a landing zone is that it allows your organization’s users to set up their accounts while giving administrators overall control and monitoring capabilities. We’ll be looking at landing zones next. Terraform Landing Zones also extends to hundreds of other third-party providers such as cloud services. So you will be able to manage all your services through one provisioning portal.

2. AWS Landing Zones

We discussed Terraform as a solution for setting up AWS Landing Zones. They are secure, multi-account portals that enable customers to quickly set up workspaces for a cloud enabled remote workforce.

The ability for users to set up their working environments and accounts is essential, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic situation. Given all the possibilities and design options available on AWS, setting up the ideal environment for your users can be time-consuming. So AWS Landing Zones come in handy in such instances by automating the set up of your environment and setting up the core accounts and resources, while taking care of the initial security baseline. Identity and Access Management (IAM), data security, logging, and much more can be automated in this manner.

The best part about AWS Landing Zones is that they deploy AWS Account Vending Machine (AVM). These are portals for creating, provisioning, and automatically configuring new remote worker accounts based on a pre-defined security baseline. It allows customers to manage user accounts and Organizational Units (OU).

AWS Landing Zones also provides additional security features like centralized logging, AWS CloudTrail for auditing, and Cross-Account Access from security accounts to user accounts.

3. Ansible for AWS

Once you have your AWS Landing Zone(s) set up and configured, the next challenge is to create multiple server instances or workspaces for your users. Depending on the size of your organization, you may need to spin up hundreds or even thousands of virtual desktops.

Ansible’s deep support for AWS will allow you to manage all the AWS services that your users require. Whether it be virtual desktops or hundreds of server instances for their applications, Ansible playbooks will come to your rescue. Once you have described your Desktop-as-a-Service instances with Ansible, you can deploy thousands of instances with ease.

Ansible comes with close to a hundred modules for managing various AWS services and over a thousand additional modules for many operating systems and platforms. Monitoring comes built-in through Ansible Tower Cloud, and you will be able to monitor all your remote worker environments even if they were deployed outside Ansible.

AWS Solutions for Remote Working

If the ease of setting up your cloud environment for remote working hasn’t convinced you, here are the other major benefits of an AWS Cloud enabled “Work at Home” workforce:

1. Remote Collaboration

Communicating with your teams has never been easier. Amazon Chime is a one-stop solution for all your chat, screen sharing, call, meeting, and collaboration needs. It connects all your remote workers through a user-friendly app with support for all your devices.

2. Secure Content Collaboration

Amazon WorkDocs is a versatile tool for creating and managing documents and collaborating. WorkDocs allows you to easily migrate your legacy file-sharing systems and local files so that you can get started without a hassle.

3. Secure and Scalable Remote Network Access

AWS Client VPN allows your cloud enabled remote workforce to securely connect to their work resources irrespective of whether they are on AWS or on-premises. It supports VPC subnets, computer and mobile support, and various levels of authorization to ensure proper levels of authorization.

4. Virtually manage your Contact Center

Amazon Connect is a virtual platform for contact center agents. They will be able to connect from where ever they are and continue to accept and make calls as if they were seated in the office. Additional features include monitoring and training tools for supervisors and coaches.
