CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Amazon Web Services this week authorized Beanstalk Data as an AWS Technology Partner, recognizing their exceptional expertise in Cloud migration. AWS is the undisputed leader in Cloud services for enterprise organizations and SMBs. Beanstalk Data's recent certification enables businesses to build and transition software into the AWS Cloud with confidence.
Most businesses now recognize the necessity of moving legacy software systems into the Cloud. In particular, high transaction volumes necessitate its superior ability to handle spikes in activity.
But because Cloud services are relatively young, many enterprises struggle to find a trustworthy and competent partner to implement the complex transition. Authorized AWS Technology Partners like Beanstalk Data represent a leap forward in ensuring high quality migration.
"We were approached this year by a Fortune 500 company that was still running major applications through a hosted solution," says Gilbert Bailey, EVP Beanstalk Data. "They were launching a mobile application supported by national advertising, and they needed a back end database that could support millions of users and transactions with significant peak periods."
Beanstalk Data used a combination of ready built tools and custom built interfaces to deploy the customer into AWS in less than 24 hours. Over the next week, they assisted in load testing the application and provided guidance on auto-scaling to handle transaction spikes while reducing cost during slow times.
Beanstalk Data is able to migrate in a consistently fast, seamless, and effective manner thanks to a toolbox of fully tested, interchangeable modules and web services that act as efficient building blocks. "We've been building AWS-native applications since the early days," says Bailey. "We're excited to offer our AWS services as an authorized Technology Partner. Moving into the Cloud just got easier and faster."
