Welcome to Towards the Cloud, where we share trusted Amazon Web Services (AWS) insights, guides, and best practices, catering to startups, medium businesses, and large enterprises in the tech scene.

Our goal is to help you navigate the AWS landscape and guide you on your journey to the cloud.

The Journey

In 2020, I embarked on a mission to document and share my AWS migration experiences from various projects. Towards the Cloud was born out of a desire to create a comprehensive resource for others to learn from and apply in their own cloud migration journeys.

As we started publishing in-depth how-tos and guides, the positive feedback from the community was overwhelming. This encouragement fueled our passion for sharing knowledge and expertise on AWS migration best practices.

Editorial Guidelines

Every piece of content on Towards the Cloud is based on in-depth research across the web (e.g., AWS documentation, stack overflow) along with my 8+ years of Cloud Engineering experience, I ensure its quality, accuracy, and relevancy.

For example, the article titled “AWS Organizations – A Complete Guide with Best Practices” has been written after I built an AWS Organization for a client of ours. This means I’ve personally experienced how it works and figured out the pros and cons of this AWS Service.

For the article titled “How to pass the AWS DevOps Engineer Professional exam – guide” I studied different source materials and conducted the AWS Certified exam in order to share my experience on how you could prepare as best as possible to pass the exam.

Older posts are frequently updated to maintain their freshness and stay relevant like my AWS Certification guides.
