Learn how you can utilize AWS Solutions to help drive your cloud development. AWS Solutions help you solve common problems and build faster using the AWS platform. All AWS Solutions Implementations are vetted by AWS architects and are designed to be operationally effective, reliable, secure, and cost efficient.

The one thing you know about machine generated data is that there's always more of it! But keeping that ever-expanding collection of log data can become costly. Amazon Elasticsearch Service is the perfect tool for storing and analyzing log data to deliver insights. While it's most common to focus on your more recent logs, sometimes you want to retain them for longer term, more forensic analysis. At a cost reduction of up to 90% over hot storage, UltraWarm for Amazon Elasticsearch Service provides you with cost efficient, long-term, transparent access to this older data, while maintaining the same fast, interactive experience. Jon Handler, Principal Search Services Solutions Architect at AWS, is here to walk us through what UltraWarm is and how you can leverage it!

Simon and Nicki take you through an interesting collection of updates across a broad range of services.

Cloud migrations remain a challenge for many organizations, however not in the areas you might think! Today Simon is joined by Edgar Haren, Sr. Product Marketing Manager with Amazon Web Services and Curran O’Brien, Migration Business Development with AWS, to discuss the value organizations can find when working towards cloud migration readiness, and how the new Cloud Adoption Readiness Tool (CART) can help kick-start the process. Across thousands of migration consultations, we found that AWS customers weren’t struggling with the technical aspects of a migration, as much as the Operational and Organizational elements. Completing a cloud readiness assessment with CART can transform your idea of moving to the cloud into a detailed plan that follows AWS Professional Services best practices. The AWS Cloud Adoption Readiness Tool (CART) helps organizations of all sizes develop efficient and effective plans for cloud adoption and enterprise cloud migrations.
