AWS is handling all appropriate hardware maintenance and upgrades. Computing instances are virtualized and provide key identifiers (performance metrics) for appropriate sizing of servers. By continuous monitoring of applications and infrastructure performance the APTrust Ops team plans upgrades to instances. Due to the virtual nature of AWS and the automated deployment of APTrust’s infrastructure by using Ansible, upgrading to more powerful hardware is fairly straightforward and can occur with minimal downtime.
