AWS Velocity

AWS Velocity

We are software engineers and independent consultants. Our goal is to enable you to increase velocity. We build and improve digital solutions on top of Amazon Web Services.

Amazon Web Services

We are focusing on building highly available, scalable and flexible environments on top of AWS. From web and mobile applications to Big Data solutions.

DevOps

We are automating the process from committing changes to the source code repository to deploying a new version of the application to production.

Cloud-native Architecture

We are developing cloud-native applications. We continue to see strong demand in Serverless applications build with API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDB, and others.

Consulting Principles

The following principles describe our working method.

AWS first!

Amazon Web Services is offering services and tools for a wide variety of use cases. Services and tools provided by AWS are highly integrated and reliable. We prefer managed services from AWS to self-hosted services or third party *aaS offerings. Wherever possible we are using tools and frameworks provided by AWS as they offer tight integration with the platform and enterprise-level support.

Cloud-native Architecture

A cloud-native architecture allows you to increase velocity and generate value out of a cloud platform. We architect for high availability and scalability. We implement self-healing systems, distributed among multiple machines and data centers. Wherever suitable, we implement serverless architectures.

Deployment Pipeline

Gathering feedback from the market is important. Therefore, we are optimizing the process from implementing to delivering software. Setting up an automated deployment pipeline, that can update an application and its cloud infrastructure without service interruption is part of all of our projects. We are using automated tests to avoid shipping broken changes to production.

Operations

Centralized monitoring and logging are essential when operating applications within a flexible cloud environment. We analyze hiccups and incidents within production environments. Instead of creating manual work for on-call engineers, we aim to improve the system or to automate countermeasures. We make ourself superfluous by enabling our customers to operate their applications and systems in the cloud without our support.
