Thanks! Hopefully you will check out my two sites. I am really considering full time freelancing in Design here in Knoxville, but I am curious if the market here is enough to sustain me. I am a graphic and web designer, and I also write a blog, and I am building it up to sell advertising space. Hopefully there are many people looking for my services.
News: We are now offering “Amazon Web Services” Consulting
You heard about Cloud Computing. You thought about moving your servers and websites to the cloud. You did some research and found the leader in cloud infrastructure: AWS, Amazon Web Services (http://aws.amazon.com). You look deeper into starting an AWS system, then you realize it is overwhelmingly geeky. Yes, AWS can be a bear to setup the first time.
We are here to help. Carp Data is now offering its AWS expertise as a consulting service. We use Amazon Web Services for all our hosting and web applications. We consult with you to setup, manage, and train your staff to use all the great tools from Amazon: Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2), Elastic Block Store (EBS), Simple Storage Service (S3), Relational Database Service (RDS), and so on.
An Amazon server, now called a “node” in the cloud, starts around $75/month with full root access. Build a web farm with load balancing and a redundant relational database for less than $250/month at Amazon. Great commodity pricing, however, doesn’t help if you don’t have the resources to implement the plan. That’s where we come in. We consult with you every step of the way, as little or as much help as you need.
