Are you currently thinking of moving to Amazon Web Services but are hesitant to do it because you find the process complicated or complex? Four Cornerstone’s team of expert AWS consultants will be able to assist you in three areas: AWS Migration and Upgrade, AWS Administration, and AWS Training.

AWS Migration and Upgrade

Four Cornerstone can help you identify your current infrastructure and needs when you move to AWS.

First, we inventory your current infrastructure to make sure that you have the right hardware for AWS. We then come up with a plan that would give you a roadmap of how your migration and upgrade would take place as well as give you a better view of what you should expect, including the infrastructure needed, and application & platform changes.  

This roadmap will also help you see how to address issues such as availability, disaster and downtime recovery, security, and capacity.  You can opt to have the migration done in phases and the Four Cornerstone plan also details how this is done. Four Cornerstone can initiate and perform the migration itself, without having to interrupt your operations. This includes custom application and cloud development for those apps that you need but cannot migrate, or that you want to rewrite to make sure that it works seamlessly with AWS.

AWS Administration

After you have successfully migrated to AWS, or if you are currently using AWS for your operations, Four Cornerstone would be able to manage AWS for you.  You can rely on our team of AWS experts to ensure that your operations based on AWS run without a hitch, freeing your own developers to focus on other more important tasks.  

Four Cornerstone’s team of experts can help you with these AWS-related tasks:  

  • Backup and disaster recovery
  • Cost optimization
  • Incident response and management
  • Provisioning for users
  • Service and instance provisioning
  • Service monitoring, instance monitoring and alerts
  • System maintenance

This means that we take care of everything related to your AWS systems, from making sure everything runs smoothly to getting you back on your feet when it does not.  

AWS Training

Your employees might need some intensive training with AWS, and we can provide them with the tools and the support they need to learn this, optimizing your AWS investments.  With Four Cornerstone, you get on-demand support and training.

Four Cornerstone can also help you manage AWS resources on your own.  We have our own team of infrastructure experts that can help you find out what’s causing problems, assist you migrate a troublesome application, or support you with just about any one-off problem that you might encounter.  It does not matter what operating system you use or which AWS services are there; we can troubleshoot any problems that may arise.  These include AWS-related problems with:
