THE SOLUTIONS offered by wph digital

  1. Migrate all production servers to AWS: This will involve moving all of the company's production servers from its on-premises data center to AWS. This will allow the company to take advantage of the scalability, performance, and reliability of AWS.
  2. Re-host the Domain Controller and transfer master role and schema: The Domain Controller is a critical component of a Windows network. It is responsible for authenticating users and computers, and for managing access to resources. By re-hosting the Domain Controller in AWS, the company can improve its performance and reliability. Transferring the master role and schema to the new Domain Controller will ensure that the company's network continues to operate smoothly.
  3. Create a site-to-site VPN for on-premises and a VPN client for external users: A site-to-site VPN will create a secure tunnel between the company's on-premises network and its AWS VPC. This will allow users on the on-premises network to access resources in the AWS VPC, and vice versa. A VPN client will allow external users to securely connect to the company's AWS VPC. This is useful for employees who work remotely or for customers who need to access the company's network.


  1. Cost savings: AWS can help companies to save money on IT costs. For example, AWS offers a variety of pricing options, such as Reserved Instances and Spot Instances, which can help companies to save money on long-term and unused capacity.
  2. Scalability and flexibility: AWS is a highly scalable and flexible platform. Companies can easily add or remove resources as needed, without having to worry about managing their own infrastructure.
  3. Security and compliance: AWS offers a wide range of security and compliance features. For example, AWS offers encryption for data at rest and in transit, as well as a variety of compliance certifications, such as HIPAA and PCI DSS.
