Cloud Storage Practice
Persistent storage such as AWS Elastic Block storage
As a Practice, Crimson leverages the Storage solutions available on AWS and other cloud service providers. Persistent block storage – EBS is used for a generic root & data volume, application and not so performance intensive Database services.
If the Apps / DB requires a specific Performance and throughputs, we design & deploy the solutions around EBS Optimized with dedicated IOPS
As part of the managed services, Crimson helps customers shrink / expand EBS volumes, creates snapshots and attaches the same to Test EC2 instances for testing purposes
Low cost, highly durable Backup storage
Object storage from Cloud services providers such as AWS S3 storage is largely used for storing the Web Application content / Images / Videos, integrating the backup services or for uploading the customers data temporarily onto AWS before the actual migration scenarios
Further, AWS Glacier is used for archival purposes by enabling the Data life cycle policies to move the older data from S3 to Glacier.
Storage in Data migration services – Crimson uses the Storage Gateway and AWS Snow ball or Azure Import / Export services to migrate the data from Onprem storage to AWS or Azure Cloud storage. Crimson’s team works very closely with the AWS SA team to define the solutions and deployment support.
