Amazon Web Services is one of the cloud computing giants offering not only virtual resources as such but also a range of other services. The list of AWS products takes up a whole screen in small font and includes tools for all sorts of applications, from database management to AI and game development.
Naturally, with such universal scope, AWS is very popular with EPAM development teams, and recently EPAM Systems subscribed to the AWS Enterprise Support plan, the highest level of support offered by Amazon, to ensure top quality support for projects working in AWS.
EPAM Cloud as a hybrid cloud supports integration with AWS via its native tools and in many ways acts as contact point between EPAM and AWS. With the company subscription to AWS Enterprise Support, EPAM Cloud implemented the mechanism of quick and easy request submission directly to AWS via native EPAM Cloud tools. In other words, you do not need to log in to any other console or portal, everything is right there on the Cloud Management Console.
