Amazon AWS CLoud Services provided by Lotus CSP

Our goal is to help organizations achieve business agility combined with the optimal total cost of ownership. Services we provide are grouped into following major sections:

Consulting for cloud migration We help our clients ascertain validity, profitability and feasibility of cloud migration for their particular infrastructure. We document existing state and create future state architecture in order to define clear migration path. We design brand new Cloud deployments where legacy systems are not of consideration. Oracle database and Amazon Web Services are incredibly versatile technological systems . Myriads of features and options will give great results if appropriate combination of products, configurations, solutions, methods and techniques are chosen and accurately implemented. We perform:

Assessment of suitability of Oracle database infrastructure for cloud deployment or migration
Data analysis
Design of migration cloud – transition, pre-cut over architecture
Future state cloud design (of on-premise – private, public, hybrid flavors)
Advise on best Oracle licencing strategy to take advantage of available licencing models (bring your own licence, pay as you go)

Design/architecture We combine thought leadership with technologies like Oracle on Amazon Web Services to make companies more agile. Essential characteristics of cloud computing – on-demand, self-service, rapid, elastic provision of computing resources over the network and resource pooling are fully implemented in Amazon Web Services cloud. We will:

Help define requirements for migration to Amazon AWS
Create Oracle database architecture that will most optimally fit in AWS offering
Define migration strategy
Design test plan
Design DR site
Design DR procedures and techniques
Design advanced solutions based on special Oracle database/Amazon AWS features

Install, configure, deploy Oracle production databases and perform data migration
Provide 7×24 support for Oracle databases on Amazon AWS
Monitor your servers to ensure Oracle database backups to Amazon S3 storage are successfully completed
Monitor database servers to ensure proper SLA is achieved
Perform change management activities on Oracle databases
Manage Oracle Data Guard databases on your DR site to ensure smooth operations
Configure, tune performance, provide end user support for Oracle databases
Apply Oracle database patches
Perform upgrades
Perform regular DR tests, Oracle Data Guard switchovers between primary and DR sites
Test restores
Implement state of the are Oracle database features and techniques using best practices and most advanced techniques

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
