By allowing businesses to run AWS infrastructure on-premises, AWS Outposts improve the consistency of hybrid cloud systems. For this reason, AWS Outposts can be extremely useful in situations where businesses need some workloads to remain on-premises due to latency sensitivity or local data processing needs. For example, businesses that deal with high-frequency trading platforms, live video stream processing, and editing, or telecom virtual network functions are ideal beneficiaries.
TeraSky is helping customers make their journey to the cloud as efficient as possible. Through our AWS Outposts partnership and deep engineering expertise, we support our customers in creating a consistent hybrid user experience at scale, while preserving the use of the same tools, APIs, hardware, and functionality across on-premise and cloud systems.
What are AWS Outposts?
AWS compute, storage, database, and other services run locally on Outposts and grant access to the full range of AWS services available in the Region to build, manage, and scale on-premises applications using familiar AWS services and tools.
There are two types of AWS Outposts:
VMWare Cloud running on AWS Outposts, which allows businesses to use the same APIs and VMware control plane they use to run their infrastructure.
AWS native variant that uses the same control plane and APIs that businesses use in the AWS cloud.
Outposts Main Benefits
Consistency: The main benefit is consistency. When developers use PaaS tools on AWS, AWS Outposts makes it easy to move applications between cloud and on-premises environments, ensuring a consistent hybrid user experience at scale.
Cost Savings: Many businesses find the costs associated with using AWS Outposts are lower than the costs of maintaining legacy on-premises systems.
Security: Many businesses worry about the potential security risks of moving data to the cloud. However, ensuring security in an on-premises environment can be just as difficult. AWS Outposts allow businesses to keep data within their own data centers, affording greater control over information security. At the same time, AWS security policies and best practices further help keep data safe.
Future-Proofing: One final reason to use AWS Outposts is the desire to future-proof business infrastructure. Upgrading an Outpost with next-generation hardware and software can be much easier than upgrading a traditional on-premises server. AWS Outposts is fully managed and supported by AWS. Your Outpost is delivered, installed, monitored, patched, and updated by AWS.
