Connectria’s Managed AWS Solutions and Support

While AWS delivers some of the most comprehensive Cloud Computing solutions in the world, AWS can be challenging to implement and administer, and the pricing can be extremely confusing and complex. Amazon does not provide AWS management or implementation support for its customers, nor an extensive number of tools to optimize your costs, security and performance.

That’s where Connectria comes in. Connectria has been providing managed hosting services since 1998. With more than 1,000 customers in 30+ countries, Connectria offers the broadest portfolio of managed services in the industry. As the Gold Standard in managed services for the hosting industry over the last fifteen (15) years, we’ve taken our Best Practices and sophisticated tools and migrated them to deliver our Managed AWS Solutions. Our Managed AWS Solutions include the industry’s broadest, most comprehensive portfolio of products and services to support and manage our customers’ AWS solutions.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cost & Performance Optimization: Connectria delivers sophisticated, proprietary tools to manage and optimize our customers’ AWS implementations. Our tools will identify properly, over, and underutilized resources to highlight areas of inefficiency and waste. Critical data is organized by utilization level, size, region, and purchasing type so that our customers have actionable information to balance performance and availability with their optimal spend.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Best Practices: Connectria’s AWS engineering teams compile and update hundreds of best practices for AWS configurations that affect security, cost, and availability. Connectria will assess on an ongoing basis the latest state of your deployment against up-to-date best practices, and alert you of any exceptions that we find.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Resource Control: Connectria will have comprehensive and up-to-date visibility into your deployment, including complete and accurate inventories of your services, resources, configurations and policies. We implement continuous change monitoring to stay informed on the latest state of your AWS account, and we receive alerts when there are significant changes to your deployment to ensure they are accurate and appropriate.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cost Savings – Up To 60% Or More: Connectria’s sophisticated Cost Optimization toolset provides our customers the tools you need to substantially reduce your AWS purchases. Our tools analyze your AWS spending, and provide options and recommendations to reduce your cost. This includes changing your instance sizes, when they run, and detailed analysis to determine when you should consider converting your instances from “On- Demand” to “Reserved Instances.” Our Cost Optimization toolset analyzes up-front costs, monthly recurring costs, time to break-even, and total achievable savings over time for all available options. We provide this purchasing analysis for both the service, and for individual resources. This allows you to generate substantial savings.

Beware Of Resellers Claiming To Save You Money! Some AWS resellers claim to be able to save you money if you buy through them, allegedly because of their volume discounts. What’s really happening is that they are running similar cost optimization tools such as ours, purchasing Reserved Instances, and keeping a large portion of the savings for themselves. You might save some money with them, but not as much as you could with Connectria’s approach. With Connectria’s Full Access Model, you have visibility into what you’re spending, what services you’re receiving, and how to generate savings – 100% of which you get to keep. With Connectria’s Full Access Model, we remove the mystery in buying cloud computing, so that you enjoy the true cost and performance benefits of the cloud - without getting taken advantage of.
