AWS Shared Responsibility Model

Security and compliance on AWS operates on a Shared Responsibility Model which means that AWS is responsible for updating, maintaining, and protecting the infrastructure it provides to its customers, but YOU, the customer, is responsible for managing and securing all of the assets and resources YOU run on AWS. To put it simply, AWS is responsible for “security of the cloud” and you are responsible for “security in the cloud.”

In this ebook, you will learn how to navigate the AWS Shared Responsibility Model in order to build on AWS with the utmost confidence, clarity, flexibility, and control.

12 Hidden Costs and Hurdles to Managing AWS Infrastructure

Cloud adoption is booming. Gartner estimates that spending on cloud services grew 6 percent in 2020 to a total market value of $257.9 billion. While there are several large public cloud players, Amazon Web Services (AWS) remains the largest, with 45 percent of the market share for Infrastructure-as-a-Service, and more than 1 million active users.

But, even with an estimated 91 percent of organizations now using a public cloud, many lack the bandwidth, internal resources, and expertise to properly manage their infrastructure. Aspects like monitoring, proactive improvements, and cost optimization typically require substantial legwork that may occupy engineers and pull them away from core business initiatives.

Without the right resources and expertise, managing your own AWS infrastructure can lead to:

  • Costly outages due to hard-to-use monitoring tools.
  • Never achieving a proactive approach.
  • Overpaying for cloud services.

In this Ebook, we will review 12 hidden costs and hurdles to managing AWS infrastructure on your own, and how working with a managed cloud service provider like Mission can help leverage AWS to accelerate your business.
