One of our esteemed clients and long-time partner company Begasoft AG has been faced with challenge of moving part of their on-prem systems into AWS cloud.
Having had virtually no prior AWS hands-on experience on most services which AWS has to offer, we have agreed to make this first step together and implement together with Begasoft’s engineers Amanox’s own solution for generating AWS cloud environments based on best practices with the name of «Bob the Builder 2.0». This approach was necessary since many companies nowadays decide to proceed with their first step into AWS world on their own. Which initially, it does not seem like a bad idea at all, however over time this kind of approach proves not to be rewarding to any of the future operations, nor to the actual further developments. This path can potentially lead to critical security breaches, loss of tracking of «who did what and when and how», complicated bills at the end of the month, huge blast radius, non-efficient application deployments and many other.
