The previous article in this series covered the “what” of choosing an Amazon Cloud Service Provider (CSP) using 5 critical selection criteria. This article helps you understand the “why” behind your choice for an Amazon CSP.
It is time to dive deep into the benefits of choosing an Amazon CSP.
Any cloud consultant can help you get your AWS solution up and running, but only an Amazon Cloud Service Provider can get your AWS solution running well. This is because only an Amazon CSP has the experience necessary to turn your unique business objectives into specific AWS cloud solutions that meet your precise enterprise needs.
Amazon CSPs also offer three added benefits for your organization:
Each of the cloud platforms (Amazon, Oracle, Google, and Azure) were developed independently, which means they have very different setups and very different quirks. If you are planning a complex cloud migration, such as running your Oracle Database in AWS, you have a lot of options to sort through.
While any cloud consultant can help you migrate your solutions, only an experienced Amazon CSP can quickly and easily guide you toward the right AWS model for your requirements. Instead of wasting your time learning about irrelevant cloud options, you deserve to work with a cloud solutions provider that simplifies the cloud, helping you compare details such as performance vs. costs or fully managed cloud (AWS RDS + Oracle) vs. self-managed cloud (AWS EC2 + Oracle). An Amazon CSP can also help you ensure you get the most out of AWS Oracle licensing.
When you are migrating an Oracle workload to another cloud, you want to make sure you do not undercut Oracle’s robust performance. After all, you are still paying for the benefits of an Oracle solution – so you deserve to enjoy them in full. You also deserve to optimize your cloud spending, so you can experience the fastest ROI from your cloud migration.
An Amazon CSP with full cloud stack expertise can help you ensure that you derive the best raw performance and best ROI from your AWS + Oracle workload on the cloud and can also help guide you away from potential lock-in pitfalls (which can be hard to spot in cloud marketing materials).
Long-term professionals perform their job functions so often and for so long that they inevitably come up with fast, repeatable systems to ensure fast, repeatable results. Amazon CSPs are no different from other professionals in that they want to perform tasks accurately and efficiently – which means your enterprise stands to derive big benefits from working with an experienced Amazon CSP.
The best CSPs develop standardized, step-by-step workflows to ensure seamless cloud transformations for their clients. They also often offer specific migration solutions (usually proprietary) that automate many parts of the migration process. Lastly, experienced Amazon Cloud Service Providers will be deeply familiar with the wide range of available AWS-developed tools and can help you leverage those tools effectively.
If you are undecided about whether you should choose an Amazon expert or just any cloud consultant to handle your Amazon Cloud + Oracle migration, simply think about the time you have to spare in running your enterprise. If you are like most CIOs or I&O leaders, you probably have very little time for delays or setbacks.
When you work with an experienced Amazon CSP, you can trust that your entire migration project will be smoother and faster than it would otherwise. This is because an Amazon CSP will act as your guide and trusted resource throughout each stage of selection, implementation, migration, support, and beyond. Why? Because only an Amazon Cloud Service Provider will understand the platform and software you are working with inside and out.
The in-depth knowledge and expertise of an Amazon CSP makes them the #1 resource to rely on to help ensure that you enjoy a smooth, well-planned cloud migration for your mission-critical workloads.
