As cloud computing continues to grow at rates much higher than IT spending generally, it’s not an exaggeration to say that cloud services are becoming businesses’ favourite method to deploy ERP systems and host websites.
Many cloud computing beginners can get confused when stepping into the space for the first time. There are many available options with often complicated pricing models. So how do companies know which model is the best fit for their business?
Last week, we’ve covered the difference between a public cloud and a private cloud by comparing WatServ to Microsoft Azure. If you’re interested in the comparison between the two cloud computing models, please take a look at our previous post. This week we will focus on Amazon Web Services.
Similar to Azure, AWS is also a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) where users are able to access its resource at a commoditized price. The customer buying a PaaS solution is simply buying compute resources. The support that the user get is limited to the platform. The provider of a PaaS solution is not committing to the performance of your application, that is the customer’s responsibility. On the other hand, at WatServ we offer a richer support experience. We commit to the effective interoperability of the complete Microsoft Dynamics solution. When businesses are dealing with private cloud hosting companies, they are essentially outsourcing part or all of their IT department. This is where we see our value. We strongly believe in providing services such as high touch support as part of our complete hosting service.
