Migrating an web app to aws


I have been asked to help migrate a app to aws, I havent deployed windows into the cloud before and was interested in getting some pointers ?

Im not worried about the app more about moving the database, its a 200gb mssql db and im wondering about the best way to get it up into the cloud.

Thanks, Alex

Depending on your requirements and budget, this use case might be addressed by AWS Import/Export, which is a dedicated offering to accelerate moving large amounts of data into and out of AWS using portable storage devices for transport:

AWS transfers your data directly onto and off of storage devices using
Amazon’s high-speed internal network and bypassing the Internet. For
significant data sets, AWS Import/Export is often faster than Internet
transfer and more cost effective than upgrading your connectivity.

You can gauge the latter via AWS Import/Export Pricing.

See Getting Started in the AWS Import/Export Developer Guide for further details.

Good luck!
