Modernizing your application development on AWS
Why modernize your application development?
In order to be more competitive, companies must create better products, and to do that, they must increase agility and innovate faster. Modern application development is an approach to designing, building, and managing applications that enables faster innovation and accelerates time-to-market for new features. By modernizing your applications, your company can deliver better service to your customers, and keep pace in a competitive landscape. In many cases, AWS has helped companies modernize by implementing cloud-native databases.
Working with FORTE CLOUD and AWS for modern application development
Companies of all sizes are ﬁnding new ways to leverage technology to innovate faster and better respond to customer demands. This is fueled by the need to maintain a competitive edge in a fast-changing environment. For many companies, an important step toward building better products faster is modernizing their applications on AWS. While customers can approach modern application development practices from diﬀerent starting points, in many cases FORTE CLOUD and AWS have helped companies modernize by implementing cloud-native databases so they can innovate faster, build more reliable applications, and reduce costs.

The next evolution: cloud-native databases
Cloud-native means you can focus on your applications and your data, not on managing databases. Additionally, you can expect availability and durability across multiple data centers and global regions, as well as performance that exceeds commercial databases without expensive licensing costs. You will also benefit from native integration across the AWS portfolio like integrated AWS Lambda functions, native read/write to Amazon S3, and customer-friendly features like Amazon Aurora Serverless, when you build modern applications on AWS’ managed, cloud-native database offerings
Why Amazon Aurora for modern application development?
To address a new and rapidly-evolving set of customer requirements, you must architect your applications for the future. Amazon Aurora is a MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database built for the cloud, that provides the security, availability, and reliability of commercial databases at 1/10th the cost. Amazon Aurora is the right cloud-native database foundation for building modern applications, for several reasons:
Amazon Aurora outperforms self-managed and commercial databases. Amazon Aurora provides fast, hyperscale, cloud-native databases to store terabytes and petabytes of data, provide access to data with millisecond latency, process millions of requests per second, and scale to support millions of users anywhere in the world.

Migrating from commercial databases to Amazon Aurora
Primary Use Cases for Amazon Arura
Migrate off commercial engines, such as Oracle or SQL Server.
Amazon Aurora powers enterprise applications that need a relational database. Compared to old-guard, commercial databases, Amazon Aurora can help cut down your database costs by 90% or more while improving the reliability and availability of the database.
Focus on building high-quality Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
Many SaaS applications run multi-tenant architectures, which require high performance and reliability as well as a great deal of flexibility for instance and storage scaling. Amazon Aurora offers a managed database service built to handle the complexities of SaaS while freeing up developers to focus on creating high-quality applications instead of managing the database.
