This spring, STORM’s teamed up with the powerhouse that is Amazon Web Services (AWS). It’s a winning combination that’ll let you tap into Amazon’s incredible bandwidth, security and global performance – with all the intuitive functionality and fast, friendly support we’re proud to have poured into STORM. It’s a great new way to up your game.
What’s so good about AWS?
Millions of people worldwide use AWS to host their sites every day, from start-ups to big businesses and major government agencies. It’s the world’s most comprehensive cloud platform, with more services and features than any other cloud provider, all running from data centres right across the globe. The power, reach and bandwidth it offers really is game changing.
STORM powered by AWS = Boom.
We’re now offering AWS hosting here at Nimbus, through our very own agency-friendly interface, STORM. It’s a great way to get the best of both worlds – all the benefits of Amazon’s security and international data centres for better bandwidth, accessed through STORM’s smart, intuitive dashboard and powerful features. So, all your servers will sit in your STORM dashboard, just like all our other servers. Even better, it’s backed up by the friendly, expert support of everyone here at Nimbus.
Why are we doing this now? Well, we want to make it easier for agencies everywhere to work with clients… well, everywhere. By adding AWS into the mix, we’re giving creatives here in the UK a better way to serve clients all over the world – while boosting performance and security.
Stronger security with encryption at rest.
When Amazon built AWS, they made it the most flexible, secure cloud environment on the planet. In fact, today it’s trusted not just by a whole range of brilliant businesses, but by huge, highly sensitive organisations like banks and the military.
With 230 security, compliance and governance features that meet 90 rigorous security standards and compliance certifications, it’s fair to say AWS is built of tough stuff. And one of the strongest security features in its toolkit is encryption at rest. It’s a clever piece of functionality that means your data is encrypted all the time, even when it’s stored offline, on disk or on a hard drive.
So, if a hacker gets hold of a hard drive full of your encrypted data, they won’t be able to read it without your AWS encryption keys. Which means extra protection and peace of mind – for you and your clients.
Improved performance for international agencies.
As we mentioned earlier, another big benefit of AWS is its impressive global reach with data centres across the US, Europe, Asia and South America. That makes it a great asset for agencies working internationally, offering the ability to store data closer to their specific customer base. Sites can serve up pages faster, by your data having to travel less distance, in turn, creating an overall better user experience.
A friendly team who’ll get you set up fast.
If you’re already up and running in STORM, it’s easy to switch your hosting so it’s powered by AWS without impacting the day-to-day tools and dashboard you’re used to.
