As the marketplace transforms, enterprises are undergoing a radical shift in the way they create value and competitive edge. Cloud Services is an emerging approach to shared infrastructure in which large pools of systems are linked together in private and public networks to provide IT services.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a recognized leader in Gartner’s cloud solutions magic quadrant and we understand the opportunities and the challenges associated with the cloud. As Advanced AWS - Consulting Partners, Locuz Cloud Capabilities have mastered the language of the Cloud to help customers of all sizes, workloads, and applications with AWS solutions. Our Cloud IPs, solutions, services and skilled resources provide the best AWS solutions for your environment

AWS Storage & DR
Cloud storage is a critical component of cloud computing, as it holds the information used by applications which is primary to its functioning. Big data analytics, data warehouses, Internet of Things, databases, and backup and archive applications all rely on some or the other form of data storage architecture.
We in partnership with AWS offer a complete range of cloud storage services to support application, storage and archival compliance requirements.
As Advanced Consulting partner to AWS; our AWS Storage competencies spread across multiple domains like Primary Storage, Backup & Recovery, and File Transfer & Data Replication. These capabilities have been vetted, validated, and verified by the AWS Partner Competency Program to support you in:
Primary Storage: Provide cost-efficient storage resources to your Amazon EC2 based storage targets, such as Amazon EBS and Amazon S3, while maintaining existing legacy Network Attached Storage (NAS) connections.
Backup & Recovery: Transform traditional backup and recovery operations away from traditional tape or disk targets to use AWS based storage resources as a fast, cost-conscious method of data protection. Use AWS storage such as Amazon S3 or Amazon Glacier as the target for backups to provide high durability for AWS workloads.
File Transfer & Data Replication: Move data from legacy storage solutions to new, AWS storage-based targets including Amazon S3 or Amazon EBS, and accelerate your existing connection to AWS resources.
We use the AWS Storage Gateway and AWS Snow ball services to migrate the data from On-Prem storage to AWS Cloud storage. Our team works very closely with AWS Solution Architects to define the solutions and migration support for our clients.
AWS offers a complete range of services for you to store, access, govern, and analyze your data to reduce costs, increase agility, and accelerate innovation. Select from object storage, file storage, and block storage services, backup, and data migration options to build the foundation of your cloud IT environment.
In our effort to beat the curve, we have invested heavily in Engineering and have rolled out offerings that include Cloud Storage as one of the primary solution component; delivering great value to our customers.
HPC on AWS
Demand for HPC continues to grow, driven in large part by ever-increasing demands for more accurate and faster simulations, for greater insights into ever-larger datasets, and to meet new regulatory requirements, whether for increased safety or for reduced financial risk.
The growing demand for HPC, and the time and expense required to deploy and manage physical HPC infrastructures, have led many HPC users to consider using AWS, either to augment their existing HPC infrastructure or to entirely replace it. There is a growing awareness among HPC support organizations – public and private - that cloud provides near-instant access to computing resources for a new and broader community of HPC users, and for entirely new types of grid and cluster applications.

DevOps on AWS
AWS provides a set of flexible services designed to enable companies to more rapidly and reliably build and deliver products using AWS and DevOps practices. These services simplify provisioning and managing infrastructure, deploying application code, automating software release processes, and monitoring your application and infrastructure performance. The AWS Developer Tools help you securely store and version your application's source code and automatically build, test, and deploy your application to AWS or your on-premises environment.
Start with AWS CodePipeline to build a continuous integration or continuous delivery workflow that uses AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeDeploy, and other tools, or use each service separately.
Why AWS for DevOps?
Get Started Fast: Each AWS service is ready to use if you have an AWS account. There is no setup required or software to install.
Fully Managed Services: These services can help you take advantage of AWS resources quicker. You can worry less about setting up, installing, and operating infrastructure on your own. This lets you focus on your core product.
Built for Scale: You can manage a single instance or scale to thousands using AWS services. These services help you make the most of flexible compute resources by simplifying provisioning, configuration, and scaling.
Automation: AWS helps you use automation so you can build faster and more efficiently. Using AWS services, you can automate manual tasks or processes such as deployments, development & test workflows, container management, and configuration management.
Secure: Use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to set user permissions and policies. This gives you granular control over who can access your resources and how they access those resources.
Pay-As-You-Go: With AWS purchase services as you need them and only for the period when you plan to use them. AWS pricing has no upfront fees, termination penalties, or long term contracts. The AWS Free Tier helps you get started with AWS. Visit the pricing pages of each service to learn more.
Cloud Security on AWS
60% of enterprises that implement appropriate cloud visibility and control tools will experience one-third fewer security failures. - Gartner Despite years of cloud maturity and examples of highly sensitive and regulated workloads, security remains one of the top reasons companies don’t move specific workloads to the cloud, especially in highly regulated industries. For some, however, cloud security continues to remain largely misunderstood—and certainly underestimated. The security provided by major cloud providers is as good as or better than most enterprise data centers, so this concern should no longer be considered a legitimate road-block to cloud adoption.

SAP on AWS
Ensuring reliability and availability of your SAP applications
Why CIOs Are Migrating Their SAP Environments to AWS?
During the past few years, SAP has focused on the cloud versions of its core products, especially S/4HANA. Meanwhile, public cloud providers are continuously innovating to build more scalable, reliable, and secure services. Vendors such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) have invested heavily in SAP as demonstrated by the wide and ever-expanding choices of SAP-certified compute instances that can accommodate even the most demanding compute needs.
Let’s looks at the three main drivers that would prompt you to migrate your SAP environment to the public cloud:
1. The role of the IT leader changing
2. Legacy technology creating more risks
3. The public cloud speeding up innovation and agility
As your partner we recognize each of these needs & can help you mitigate these challenges with ease by easing out your SAP environment migration.
