If you've migrated your application to AWS, you're aware of the benefits of cloud computing. Even after you've moved your code into an EC2 instance and your files into S3, there are more AWS services you could be taking advantage of, and more are added every day. Below are five useful services every non-AWS professional should know about to get the most out of their application in AWS.
After evaluating the advantages of the cloud and strategies for your application migration, the next thing to consider is how to leverage cloud technology to implement/improve Disaster Recovery (DR).

There are multiple approaches to getting your application to the Cloud, but many companies are going “all in” to take advantage of a cloud native microservices approach because it makes it easier to deploy, scale, enhance, and maintain applications. In this article, we use an example of the architecture design decisions for our anonymous email tool, DragonMail, to demonstrate some options and capabilities to consider when moving away from a monolithic to a microservice architecture utilizing the dotNet capabilities in AWS.
