Amazon Web Services
Our preferred infrastructure for hosting custom apps in the cloud is AWS (Amazon Web Services). AWS has a reliable and robust infrastructure for hosting a wide variety of web applications. They provide all the core building blocks needed for almost any web application. Additionally, the admin console for AWS is web organized and efficient to use.
As an example, we have multiple sites that use the following AWS components lambda, S3 buckets, cognito, Route 53, and RDS databases.
We have also integrated with the AWS Rekognition API as a security measure for a popular adoption matching service.
Rekognition provides highly accurate facial analysis and facial search capabilities that you can use to detect, analyze, and compare faces for a wide variety of user verification, people counting, and public safety use cases.
