We design, deploy and support your AWS Infrastructure.
A robust, loosely coupled and with triggering matrix hosting infrastructure is critical to support your Magento webstore. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world's most comprehensive cloud platform. Whether you’re a small business or a multi-national corporation in need of scalable, international cloud hosting for Magento – AWS has a cloud infrastructure to meet all your needs.
Hosting solutions for Magento webstores aren’t a one-size-fits all. The hosting solution will depend on the number of products, traffic volume to the website, extension and integration. It isn’t uncommon for Magento websites to see a spike in traffic when marketing campaigns are live, and a well-built Magento hosting environment must effectively auto-scale to match the demand and increased traffic with adequate resources.
Advantages of hosting Magento on AWS
Enhanced availability and scalability
Security, Scalability and Auto scaling policy is what makes Magento hosting attractive on AWS.
During spikes in traffic and depending on Cloudwatch rules set, when a threshold is reached auto scaling policy can start firing multiple servers and scale up the resources to meet the increased traffic. When traffic normalises, these additional EC2 instances can automatically get terminated.
Magento store can be designed to run even in the event of a datacentre failure or region failure.
Performance and Backup
AWS provides various performance optimisation features, the most prominent one being AWS Cloudfront.
AWS Cloudfront is a Content Delivery Network (CDN) service with edge locations around the globe. To improve user experience http and media content can be distributed across multiple edge locations to accelerate delivery. In addition, AWS also offers Memcached and Redi caching to improve database query and webserver optimisation.
Snapshot of an EC2 instance can be made with data backed up on an AWS S3 bucket. AWS S3 allows unlimited data backup and durable storage solutions with 99.99% availability and option of version control can be enabled. Data can be backed up across geographic locations.
Geo Targeted Marketing
AWS is the world leader in cloud technology and supports over 1 million customers in 190 countries.
If you wish to market your Magento website to different regions across the globe, we could utilise AWS infrastructure to effectively market your products. AWS Route53 is an Intelligent DNS service and Magento website can be targeted to various regions using AWS Route53’s weighted, failover, latency and geo targeting features. AWS Route53’s weighted can be applied for beta testing of new features with percentage of traffic distribution.
As Magento is an eCommerce CMS that allows online transactions with credit cards, it can become a target of exploitation.
With AWS, we can implement multiple levels of security for your Magento website. Vulnerabilities like Port scanning, DDNS attacks, IP spoofing, Packet sniffing and man in the middle attacks are mitigated at AWS infrastructure level.
Network Access Control List (NACL) allows security to be implemented at Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) level. AWS Security Group allows for firewall rule to be set at EC2 instance and database layers. For implementation of firewall rules at the web application level, AWS WAF rule can be implemented to provide added security with a Magento-specific CMS.
