Our AWS Consulting Services include:
AWS Cloud Migrations
Our AWS Consultants will audit your existing infrastructure to get an understanding of the nuances of your current stack and come up with a design and strategy to implement your AWS cloud migration.
AWS Cloud Infrastructure Design & Strategy
Our AWS Infrastructure Design & Strategy Engineers use proven design patterns to ensure we are creating an infrastructure that can easily be maintained, is scalable and secure to meet the demands of your organization. We will design your infrastructure to be 100% codified & automated, making it less error prone, more reliable and stable.
AWS lets you scale globally, on-demand. We architect your infrastructure for high-availability and improved overall performance, offering
intrinsic flexibility throughout any enterprise life-cycle.
We can build your infrastructure using a hybrid approach of seamless connectivity between your internal data centers and your AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) for sending data upstream, downstream or both.
Uptime is of the utmost importance, so we make sure to build out your infrastructure to be self healing. We try to foresee problems before they happen by implementing proper monitoring, introspection and telemetry for a total holistic view of your AWS infrastructure.
When we build out a new AWS infrastructure we will build with security in mind from the beginning, following the principle of least privilege. By doing this we ensure your systems are secure from external threats but also internal threats like careless developers deleting something they shouldn’t.
Related to the AWS migration, many enterprise technical and business executives see cloud service benefits in term of performance, cost, and stability. However, they are more concerned about the cloud security issues. Cloud security faces many complex and diverse challenges, such as cloud computing data security, security challenges of application development under the cloud model, the threat of virtualization technologies for cloud computing, as well as cloud-computing stability and reliability issues. In order to implement cloud security services for enterprises, the key is to understand the clients and their needs, then design solutions for these needs.
Qmoniqs’s cloud security consulting services can help clients efficiently manage data. We can help clients reduce risk, enhance information integrity, and promote data sharing. End-to-end cloud security solutions provide clients with enterprise-level security technology to meet their strict requirements, creating separation between software and the commercial cloud platform. At the same time, it increases the capabilities of crash recovery.
AWS Application Development & Testing
Qmoniqs AWS Application Development and Testing consulting services utilizes the currently popular cloud technology. It incorporates the various needs of the current development and testing. We provide cloud-based integrated solutions for development, operation, and maintenance, which encompasses development and testing environments, project source code management, project flaws management, project progress management, and development and testing services.

Our evolving SRE engagement model
Build, Test, Deploy, Monitor & Managed Support on AWS
We setup all the automation to control the standing up and of your VPCs, VPNs, monitoring stacks, and Kubernetes clusters using tools like Cloudformation, Chef, Ansible or Puppet.
Once changes are detected in your application’s version control, continuous integration will run the build process which creates a Docker image and ships it to your Docker registry. Additionally, for quality assurance purposes a user acceptance testing environment creates a version of the application in your cluster. Regressions are captured in the pipeline and stopped at the door prior to getting to production.
Once tests pass and the team is satisfied, the GitOps workflow updates the application running in higher environments.
Once your application has been deployed, you can then proactively monitor your infrastructure to instantly detect issues with your deployments and alert the team. Logs are aggregated, shipped, and backed up automatically.
5. Managed Support
If issues arise from failed deployments, server outages, transaction locks in your database causing 500s, scalability concerns causing application reaping, our AWS Managed support team can handle incident management for your infrastructure. We also proactively maintain your infrastructure by handling security and patch management, health checks of your infrastructure, service upgrades, monitoring and backups.
Migrate your business, not your servers.
Realizing the benefits of the cloud requires more than identifying which workloads to move and in what order. Embark on a true cloud transformation by embracing cloud-native thinking, forging a path customized to your state of cloud maturity, and identifying clear outcomes you are looking to the cloud to enable.
Our pipeline-driven approach and innovative platform tooling enables us to move customer workloads quickly, efficiently, affordably – and with predictable results. Most importantly, we work with customers to avoid wasteful and undifferentiated outcomes delivered by typical lift-and-shift migrations.
Our AWS cloud-migration services create tailored solutions driven by a client’s desire to translate on-premise applications and datastores, to various cloud-based infrastructures. Our collaborative, phase-based approach provides the client with immediate results in the form of enhanced scalability, extended operational performance, and expanded security, resulting in better overall commercial enterprise flexibility.
Our steps for setting up the environment for an AWS cloud migration includes
Spin up environments with best practices around VPC’s
Spin up 3 private subnets in 3 different availability zones
Spin up 3 public subnets in 3 different availability zones
Setup all the proper routing and gateways
Setup framework for VPN connectivity
Setup SSH Bastion boxes (if needed)
Setup IAM policies for per VPC segmentation
Setup proper framework for Flow Log logging in each VPC
Setup load-balancer framework for sites, internal and external facing

The control and management of technological costs represent critical elements when establishing the viability of a particular commercial operation. On-premise life-cycle analyses suggest that mature firms spend up to 25% of net revenue per year simply monitoring and maintaining in-house systems and infrastructures. However, these static maintenance costs can be reduced considerably by migrating an data infrastructure from an on-premise, to consumption-based cloud approach.
Because cloud operations leverage aggregated customer densities higher than normal economies-of-scale can be realized from a cost perspective. This impact amortizes technical costs, thereby allowing the client to experience much lower price per usage value.
Increased operational performance
Since the cloud co-locates all operational elements in a central repository all applications, functions, utilities and affiliate systems can be applied simply and quickly. This approach allows the client to leverage the additional operational speed offered by centralized, demand-based usage.
Focus on business not technology
Necessary on-premise infrastructure responsibilities are entirely eliminated by leveraging the cloud construct. In turn, this impact allows the client additional time to identify, target and prosecute new sales opportunities leading to higher-rates of success than previously realized.

AWS Best Practices and Recommendations
AWS BASED DRAAS
AWS Based Disaster Recovery as a Service
The AWS cloud lets you back up, store, and recover IT systems in seconds by supporting popular DR approaches from simple backups to hot standby solutions that failover at a moment’s notice. And with 12 regions (and 5 more coming this year!) and multiple AWS Availability Zones (AZs), you can recover from disasters anywhere, any time. The following information shows a spectrum for the four scenarios, arranged by how quickly a system can be available to users after a DR event.
These four scenarios include:
1. Backup and Restore – This simple and low cost DR approach backs up your data and applications from anywhere to the AWS cloud for use during recovery from a disaster. Unlike conventional backup methods, data is not backed up to tape. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) computing instances are only used as needed for testing. With Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)
2. Pilot Light – The idea of the pilot light is an analogy that comes from gas heating. In that scenario, a small flame that’s always on can quickly ignite the entire furnace to heat up a house. In this DR approach, you simply replicate part of your IT structure for a limited set of core services so that the AWS cloud environment seamlessly takes over in the event of a disaster. A small part of your infrastructure is always running simultaneously syncing mutable data (as databases or documents), while other parts of your infrastructure are switched off and used only during testing. Unlike a backup and recovery approach, you must ensure that your most critical core elements are already configured and running in AWS (the pilot light). When the time comes for recovery, you can rapidly provision a full-scale production environment around the critical core.
3. Warm Standby – The term warm standby is used to describe a DR scenario in which a scaled-down version of a fully functional environment is always running in the cloud. A warm standby solution extends the pilot light elements and preparation. It further decreases the recovery time because some services are always running. By identifying your business-critical systems, you can fully duplicate these systems on AWS and have them always on.
4. Multi-Site – A multi-site solution runs on AWS as well as on your existing on-site infrastructure in an active- active configuration. The data replication method that you employ will be determined by the recovery point that you choose, either Recovery Time Objective (the maximum allowable downtime before degraded operations are restored) or Recovery Point Objective (the maximum allowable time window whereby you will accept the loss of transactions during the DR process).
Our dedicated team of AWS experts can help architect Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions for your business leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the hosting platform and our Managed Services Team as the support engine. AWS provides a robust platform to host Disaster Recovery and add additional services on-demand. This helps enable our customers to achieve their internal compliance, Disaster Recovery, and business continuity needs, while also planning for future technology requirements.
