Wellpepper is pleased to announce that we are now an AWS Advanced Technology partner!
When we started Wellpepper in 2012, we evaluated a list of hosting options. We looked at availability and durability guarantees, the breadth of service offerings, how deeply the provider was investing in their cloud offerings, and their expertise and compliance with healthcare requirements.
AWS was clearly at the head of the pack in their cloud investment, and had the most believable availability and durability guarantees. Over the last 5 years, this has proven true – AWS has been a rock solid platform for us. But what’s really been incredible is to watch how fast AWS has broadened their service offerings (many new useful platform-as-a-service tools), and pulled many of these under the HIPAA-eligible service umbrella.
Our software architecture has evolved over time. We have always relied heavily on EC2 instances and S3 for bulk object storage, and we still do. We have also started using services like Lambda for some of the newer parts of our platform. We also rely heavily on AWS services like CloudWatch for monitoring and logging, CloudTrail for auditing, and CodeDeploy to deploy services automatically. We did a little video about our architecture with the AWS Startups team last year if you want to know more.
As Advanced Tier partners, we’re looking forward to delivering the Wellpepper patient engagement platform through the AWS marketplace, in addition to selling directly.
