AWS vs. Azure: Why to Look Beyond the Price Tag

As you may be aware, we are a very AWS oriented shop when it comes to our cloud services. We provision servers, workspaces, EC2 instances, etc., all day long. With our certifications as an AWS Partner, it allows us to concentrate on this single dynamic, powerful platform and perform our jobs extremely well.

Bomb Cyclone 2018: Cloud Services and Mother Nature

I am literally writing this blog on January 4, 2018, during what is known as the bomb cyclone. My offices have no power, no Internet; backup batteries have been expended; cellular towers are down.

So why am I talking about this on a business blog?

Keeping Your Servers Up When the Power and Internet is Down

Quite simply is a lesson in environmental concerns when it comes to your network. The reason why is simple. At Triton Technologies, for most of our clients, we have implemented cloud-based servers and networks. The majority of our corporate servers are cloud-based, residing on multiple Amazon servers throughout the United States, providing us with regional stability when it comes to our networks.

That basically means all of our antivirus, monitoring servers, backup servers, and more are actually still operational even though our endpoints are not. That means that our clients based in the European Union, Australia, California, and Canada can still access their corporate resources without worry when it comes to productivity.

Connectivity Outside the Storm

Now my house and most of our technicians have lost intranet and power, but our clients wherever they have power and Internet are operational. This is great as a live fire proof of concept. The only received couple reports of VPN connectivity for those clients that are looking to connect locally but all Amazon servers and services are fully operational.

That is why we recommend, when budget and IT infrastructure to the Internet allows, every business having a cloud-based server. The uptime, cost, and benefit are all there.
