Getting started with AWS part two


Last year our colleague Christoffer Pozeus shared how to get started with AWS from a technical perspective covering the different alternatives such as AWS Landing Zone, AWS Control Tower and AWS Deployment framework (ADF). If you haven’t read his blog make sure to give it a read!

In this blog we would like to share some of our experience with some of our recent customers and also what we are seeing in the market and get up and running as quickly as possible with your new AWS environment.

What we are seeing are two main directions customers are taking, first group of customers are moving to the cloud, we are going to migrate from our data centers and go all in AWS. The second group has a lot on-prem, doing a huge lift & shift will not be cost effective and time efficient so they start small and grow from there.

If you are a company in situation one or two then you will need to start with building your foundation and AWS in this example there are many ways of doing this. What we are seeing is that many do this themselves and if it’s to build competence within AWS then that is great, but our recommendation is view it as just this, to build competence and not our future foundation that we will over time will move business critical applications which requires a high level of security, cost control and scalability.

Depending on your situation if you have an in-house team who you want to build this competence within or if you want someone else to manage this for you make sure that you receive some help. All from guiding principles, lessons learnt to recommendations. This will enable you and your team and set you up for success and of course avoiding costly troubles later down the road.

We have done this journey many times over the years with all different kind of customers in different shapes and sizes and the question we always get is how long will this take? The boring answer is of course it depends, but the realistic answer is from a few days to a few weeks.

We strongly believe that the best out-comes are when we do things together understanding you as a customer where you are, where you wantto be and how we can support and share our experience and learn together.

To summarize, make sure to set a solid foundation as early as possible which will be sustainable over time!
