KeyCore advices on moving Microsoft workloads to AWS

Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) offers a variety of advantages when running Microsoft Windows Server instances on AWS.

Microsoft workloads

Amazon EC2 offers your business scalability, cost-efficiency, and security, essential for meeting the needs of clients in industries like media, financial services, and life sciences.

The pay-as-you-go pricing model, high availability, and global reach allow you to deliver tailored solutions that optimize costs and meet stringent security and compliance requirements. Integration with the AWS ecosystem and flexible licensing options further enhance the value of EC2 as a valuable resource for your business.

KeyCore also offers a service where we provide a complete Managed Service for all your AWS workloads, allowing your company to focus more on business logic and application development instead of worrying about the underlying infrastructure.
