5 AWS Services And Money-Making Tips For Partners
Jared Reimer, president and founder of Cascadeo, an AWS premier consulting partner, breaks down five services and opportunities Amazon Web Services channel partners should be leveraging today.
DevOps Guru For ‘Flip-The-Switch’ Cloud Insights
AWS has a service called DevOps Guru. This is the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning to cloud operations. So instead of building your own monitoring systems and alerting systems, then hiring engineers to watch them and interpret the results, and having engineering teams try to understand the relationships between different systems and different signals coming out of these monitoring systems—they’ve turned that into a ‘flip-the-switch’ service.
[With DevOps Guru] the customer can turn it on, and within a matter of a day or two, start getting insights about their cloud deployment.
It’s insights on different things like: How efficient is it? How’s your database performing? Are there bottlenecks? Are there things that are going to fail in the future that we can anticipate and take corrective action about? These insights are so powerful, and so valuable, and they save you so much time, money and toil, that you’d be silly not to buy it.
A lot of companies haven’t discovered this yet. It’s like continuing to fly the airplane by hand when there’s an autopilot button that can help radically reduce pilot workload. Yes, you still need the pilot, but the pilot doesn’t have to sit there and hand fly day in, day out and never make a mistake. So these kinds of tools and technologies are going to be massively powerful in the years ahead. We’re really seeing the tip of the iceberg with that.
