Designing for AWS is fundamentally different from designing for the traditional Data Center. Several core concepts from the data center can be simply removed from the equation when designing for AWS. RAID 10 configurations involving Logical Volume Managers are replaced by Network-attached EBS Volumes and snapshots written to the highly durable AWS Simple Storage Service (S3). Backup Tapes are replaced by AWS Glacier. N+1 redundancy is replaced by AutoScaling Groups and DevOps.
Navigating this new landscape is difficult enough; doing so independently can be downright hazardous from both a cost and security standpoint. OC4 fills this void and serves as an experienced guide into the World of AWS. For example, to run workloads that manage patient data as defined by U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), OC4 can obtain through AWS, the AWS business associate addendum (BAA), a contract which clarifies how our Customers HIPAA obligations will be shared with AWS. OC4 works with various AWS Partners focused on Security within AWS, to support the OC4 Design, Implementation and Run of any Application subject to HIPAA, FISMA, CJIS, PCI DSS and/or NIST.
