AMAZON Presence in Disaster Recovery as a Service
Amazon Web Services offers remote support through its dense network of technology partners located globally. The company leverages its internal R&D budget to cater to the needs of a wide class of enterprises by deploying highly innovative and customized DR services. The company has a strong foothold in the Americas, Europe, and APAC, and has been focusing on expanding its foothold in the emerging markets by ensuring product availability among its regional distributors, channel partners, resellers, service partners, and technology partners, specifically in MEA and Latin America. The company delivers business, technical, sales, and marketing resources, to help enterprises grow their business and better support their customers. The company provides consulting and technical support to customers and enterprises under two different Amazon Partner Network (APN) programs, namely APN Consulting Partners and APN Technology Partners. APN Consulting Partners include system integrators, strategic consultancies, agencies, MSPs, and VARs. Moreover, APN Technology Partners are software solution providers, such as ISVs, providers of SaaS, PaaS providers, and security vendors. In October 2015, Amazon Web Services announced the launch of its Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), which supports the popular MySQL-compatible, open-source database, MariaDB. The fully-managed AWS Database Migration Service enables enterprises to bring their production databases to AWS with virtually no downtime. Amazon RDS manages complex and time-consuming administrative tasks, such as PostgreSQL software installation and upgrades, storage management, replication for high availability, and backups for DR. In November 2014, Amazon Web Services launched AWS Lambda, a compute service that runs automatically by defining the codes. This new addition enabled developers to reduce overall development efforts, and save time and money. AWS Lambda integrated with Amazon CloudWatch automatically monitors functions and generates reports.
