For over 20 years, Arq Group has provided enterprise customers with solutions that are highly flexible, scalable, and available. In 2012 with the arrival of AWS to the Australian region, expanded these capabilities dramatically. We could not only support the needs of customers but leverage production-ready AWS cloud services and tools to innovate on behalf of our customer base to transform businesses.

Why Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Having provided cloud services for many years, Arq Group was seeking a cloud provider that had the reach, and scale to innovate, disrupt. But mostly, deliver a platform robust and stable enough to provide the foundations for the deployment of production workloads. "In my opinion, AWS is the only public cloud service provider with the tools and products to run enterprise production workloads in the public cloud," said Steve McCormick – Director Cloud Practice.

"Just as Arq Group has always supported a wide range of technology stacks, AWS offers the same breadth, making it easier to move more workloads to the platform". This flexibility, combined with price points that continually decline, accelerated time to market, innovation and the scalability to support enterprise workloads are a few of the benefits of working with AWS.

Arq Group has a proven capability of assisting organisations with shifting workloads into AWS and offers managed services for the workloads once set up and running - from the OS up to and including the application. These services are offered under a range of commercial models from pass-through billing to an outcome-based model where the customer can gain the benefits of a fixed monthly fee. Arq Group uses its knowledge and skills with AWS to guarantee the outcome.

Arq Group uses many of the AWS Products and Services, including:

  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)
  • Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS)
  • Amazon DynamoDB
  • Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)
  • Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS)
  • Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS)
  • Amazon Route53
  • Amazon ElastiCache

Internally, Arq Group capability development teams and all staff are empowered to experiment with AWS, to improve and optimise services for customers quickly and inexpensively.
