Streamline your daily operations on AWS

If you’re not looking for an agency to help you build on AWS but rather do it yourself, then we got you covered!
We’ve created a comprehensive dashboard called the AWS Operational Checklist which is designed to help you implement best practices, reducing the time and costs associated with maintaining your infrastructure without having to search the internet for random blog posts to help you setup a managable infrastructure on AWS.
Managing AWS infrastructure can be costly and time-consuming without the right setup, often requiring a dedicated team.

Constantly firefighting infrastructure problems and spending countless hours pinpointing issues leads to unpredictable costs and lack of control, diverting your focus from core business goals.

Reduce your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by applying the best practices in our checklist that you can apply immediately on your AWS environment.

Who is behind Towards the Cloud?

Surprising fact: This is a one-person agency. Collaborate directly with Danny, the founder and Cloud Engineer. Our clients span the globe, including startups, enterprises and mid size-businesses. All are focused on moving to AWS Cloud and need someone to built and automate their distributed applications.

Why not hire a full-time DevOps or Cloud Engineer?

Hiring full-time professionals can be a headache. It’s costlier and more challenging to manage.

A Senior Cloud or DevOps Engineer might set you back $100k+. My goal is to build solutions that are optimized to scale and gave low maintenance, so you can focus on your business instead of needing teams of engineers maintaining your solutions.

Where are you based?

I’m based in Amsterdam (GMT+2 timezone). I work remotely and asynchronously, allowing me to effectively serve clients worldwide.

By clearly defining project requirements upfront, we can focus on delivering outstanding results without the need for constant meetings.

Do you offer cloud solutions?

Yes, we offer comprehensive cloud solutions tailored to meet your specific business needs. Our services include designing, implementing, and managing highly scalable and resilient AWS Cloud infrastructures using infrastructure as code (AWS CDK). We offer a variety of solutions for a fixed price that can be found over here.

Do you offer cloud services?

Absolutely, we provide a wide range of cloud services to help you leverage the full potential of AWS Cloud. Our services are customized to fit your unique requirements and typically involve an intake and assessment process before we can provide an estimate on costs.

This ensures that we fully understand your needs and can deliver the most effective solutions. Our offerings include cloud migration, infrastructure setup, continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) pipelines, security and compliance management, and ongoing support and optimization.

We work closely with you to deliver services that enhance your operational efficiency and reduce costs, empowering your team to manage and scale your cloud environment effectively.

How do international clients make payments for your services?

We offer our services and solutions to international clients primarily via AWS IQ. This platform provides a secure and easy payment process through its escrow service, ensuring peace of mind for both clients and experts.

When you work with us through AWS IQ, your payments are directly linked to your AWS account, offering a seamless and integrated billing experience.

You might notice that our solutions link back to our listings on our AWS IQ profile page, where you can review and engage our services with confidence.

This approach not only simplifies the payment process but also ensures that all transactions are secure and transparent. You can read more about it on our contact page.
