How to Find the AWS Products and Services that Work for You

There's a wealth of helpful information out there on AWS architecture if you know where to look  

There comes a time - in life and business - when you have to make a big move. For Charles, that moment had arrived. He'd watched his online business expand beyond his wildest dreams, thanks to the infrastructure he got from his well-architected framework. The modest success he was experiencing had given him a taste of what was possible and now he was determined to get there. 

But Charles wasn't an impulsive man - he liked to do his research before making big changes so he put his head down and began looking for examples of AWS Architecture that he could replicate and improve upon. As he dug into the research, he began to understand how the right architecture should be able to facilitate traffic, a growth in the number of users and data size without any drop in performance.

That's what he wanted to achieve. 


  • AWS architecture diagrams 'are very helpful in conceptualizing the architecture of your app according to the particular AWS service you are going to use, they are also useful when it comes to creating presentations, whitepapers, posters, dashsheets and other technical material.'  Creately has a selection of very helpful templates that help you envision your new AWS architecture.
  • The number of applications and resources that are available can feel overwhelming. You may know what you need but you're not sure what Amazon product can get you there. Codeburst has done a great job of explaining simply what the options are for Amazon resources and what their strengths and weaknesses are.  
  • Amazon has a refreshingly transparent approach to AWS architecture. It provides many examples of the various ways that its services are being used on its AWS Architecture Centre, as well as a number of 'Quick Starts', which are effectively templates that can 'help you rapidly deploy fully functional software on the AWS Cloud, reduce hundreds of manual procedures into just a few steps, and follow AWS best practices for security and availability.'

To be able to draw on the work that others have done before is a very powerful resource at your disposal.  

Having done his research, Charles felt more confident than ever that he knew what he needed. But he also realized that the smart move was to partner with AWS experts who could make it happen for him. After all, he had enough on his plate to think about in terms of his own business without having to learn the ins and outs of AWS. That's when he decided it was time to partner with Privo. He had no doubt that with their experience and understanding, they could save him time and money.
