Featured Case Study

Lereve Labs Amazon Migration Case Study
Infrastructure Migration To Amazon
Recently, Lereve Labs helped a social media company in Washington D.C. to convert their existing systems from an outdated managed servers to Amazon’s cloud computing environment. Lereve Labs helped devise a plan migration plan, setup and secured the cloud beta environment which allowed the company to test the system before going live. After the beta test our team conducted the final migration and the company didn’t experience any down time.

After the update to the cloud servers our team also provided guidance on upgrading from a costly SQL Server database to utilize Amazon’s SimpleDB. The team setup the data strategy for the non-relational data structures and created a set of classes for data access components. Currently the company is utilizing this new infrastructure and experiencing better response rates than with the SQL Server database.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is moving to cloud good for my business?

If I move to a virtual server, is my data safe?

How much does it cost to host my site in the cloud?
Cloud computing is billed based on how much you use. There isn’t one list for cloud pricing because there are so many services but it can be computed per hour or based on how much space you use. Here are links for computing services for Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Do I have to pay for software licensing?
No, not exactly. One of the nice features of cloud computing is you don’t have to worry about licensing anymore BUT you still have to pay for it. Both Amazon and Microsoft build the licensing into the pricing. This is why a Linux instance will cost less than a Windows instance.
