Hi Andreas and Michael,

I found it interesting that you moved a bank's infrastructure over to AWS.
My impression of the banking sector was that they tend to be conservative when it comes to technologies.
What were some notable challenges - technical, procedural (ex: regulatory compliance) or managerial - that you ran into?

Thanks for your question, Karthik.

I agree, the banking sector is conservative in general. We had the chance to work for a very innovative bank which is focusing heavily on automating every part of their business. Especially everything that is related to technology.

A big challenge was to comply with the regulations that are in place for the banking sector. But we were able to convince all involved parties. AWS offers a lot of possibilities to build a highly available and secure infrastructure. In my opinion the quality of infrastructure increases a lot when using AWS compared to on-premise.

You'll find a lot of security related topics in our book Amazon Web Services in Action (https://www.manning.com/books/amazon-web-services-in-action?a_bid=cc17df85&a_aid=awittig) and in our blog (https://cloudonaut.io).

Yes, I can imagine compliance and convincing people wouldn't have been easy. Thank you for the links - I'll check them out.
