Provides automatic database backup (snapshot) function. The automatic backup process runs daily. Additionally, data can be restored as needed within the set retention period, helping to avoid data loss in the unlikely event of data loss.

●Security
To ensure database security, we provide numerous security functions such as database encryption, access control, and audit logging.

Features of Amazon Aurora

● Scalability
Amazon Aurora supports vertical and horizontal scaling. Vertical scaling allows you to increase resources such as CPU, memory, and storage for your instance. Horizontal scaling allows you to create read replicas to offload read processing for queries.

● High-speed processing of large amounts of data
Amazon Aurora provides high-speed reading (Reader) and writing (Writer) performance. It uses advanced techniques such as multi-threading, page caching, and online log replay to achieve high-speed performance even when processing data for large-scale applications.

● Supports automatic sharding
Sharding is a method of partitioning a database and exhibits high performance when handling large amounts of data. By dividing data by shard key (key for dividing data), for example, if the customer ID is the shard key, the data of the same customer will be stored in the same shard.

With sharding, Amazon RDS Aurora splits your data across multiple instances. Each instance queries its own shard. This allows for increased scalability and load balancing.

Amazon RDS Aurora supports automatic sharding. With automatic sharding, Amazon RDS Aurora automatically partitions your data to provide optimal performance. You can also configure sharding manually, and when you configure sharding manually, you have control over how your data is distributed.

Please tell me about Amazon EC2

Please tell me about Amazon EC2


Amazon EC2 is a computing service provided by AWS as a virtual server. Servers are managed in units called instances, and new instances can be created by simply clicking a few buttons on the browser or issuing a command from the CLI (command line interface). Therefore, compared to physical servers (on-premises), the preparation period for server machine procurement can be significantly shortened.

Amazon EC2 features

● Scalable computing resources You
can start as many as you need when you want to use them, and stop them when they are no longer needed. Additionally, you can change resources such as increasing or decreasing the specs of instance performance as needed.


You can use the security features of the secure cloud server For example, you can use instance-level security groups, network ACLs, and IAM.

● Global infrastructure
You can take advantage of AWS's global infrastructure. By using AWS Regions and Availability Zones (AZ), you can provide low-latency services to users around the world.

● Preset AMI
By using an AMI, a preset OS such as Linux or Windows and applications are provided with them already installed. This allows applications to start quickly.

● Various instance types
A variety of different types are available, including CPU, memory, storage, and network, so you can choose the most suitable type for each application.

● Billing based on resource usage Pay-as-
you-go billing based on the amount of time an instance is used and the amount of data transferred, so you can use only the resources you need for the amount of time you need.

Features combined with Amazon EC2

● Autoscaling
By using the autoscaling function, instances can be automatically scaled up or down depending on the application load. This allows you to quickly and automatically respond to increases or decreases in the number of users.


By installing a load balancer on top of a load balancing network, you can distribute traffic to multiple instances and expect to improve application availability and scalability.

● Storage
You can attach storage services such as EBS and EFS to store application data efficiently and securely.

● GPU Instances
You can use GPU instances to perform advanced computing tasks such as machine learning and data analysis.

What kind of applications are the services provided by Beyond suitable for?

Web services such as games, apps, EC sites, media sites, and digital content require speed and flexibility, and are suitable for companies that operate services that are directly linked to sales, and for content development and management. This is probably suitable for companies that want to concentrate, or companies that do not have a server administrator in the first place.

Additionally, there is a tendency for companies facing such issues to outsource their services to MSPs (managed service providers) like Beyond, which specialize in cloud/server construction, operation, maintenance, and monitoring.

Please tell me the comparison and differences between cloud servers and physical servers.

Please tell me the comparison and differences between cloud servers and physical servers.

Comparisons and differences between cloud servers and physical servers (on-premises) include the following features:

Characteristics of cloud servers
Safety ・Since the hardware infrastructure (server/network) is redundant as standard, there are fewer service outages due to hardware failures.
Operational aspect ・You can immediately build a server, add more servers, and improve specifications without choosing the location of the server.

- The server can be scaled out for high load access.

Price aspect ・Since most cloud services charge a pay-as-you-go fee for the amount of data transferred, monthly costs fluctuate.

・Service fees for overseas cloud services, such as AWS, GCP / Azure / Oracle Cloud, etc., fluctuate monthly due to exchange rates.

merit - Resources can be added as needed and in the amount needed, making it easy to add resources.

・Even if the server configuration is the minimum configuration at the time of cloud introduction, specifications can be increased or decreased after the service starts.

Demerit - Since the hardware infrastructure and configuration are black boxes, it is difficult to determine the cause and evaluate performance when a failure occurs due to hardware.

・Since the amount of data transferred is pay-as-you-go, the cost of monthly service usage fees may increase.

comprehensive evaluation ・For web services and systems where the access load to the server changes suddenly, such as games and apps / EC sites / media sites / digital content, the cloud is suitable because it can quickly respond to resource additions and scale-outs.

・When it comes to cloud reliability, most cloud services are audited annually by internationally recognized third-party auditing organizations to provide assurance regarding security, privacy, and compliance controls.

Characteristics of physical server (on-premises)
Safety - Since the data is stored in a physical environment, the location of the server is clear.
Operational aspect - Machine resources such as servers, firewalls, and load balancers can be monopolized by one company, making it easy to customize as a unique system according to the company's requirements.
Price aspect ・Although initial installation costs are required, monthly costs are often fixed, so monthly cost management is stable. However, there are indirect human costs that are not visible, such as infrastructure maintenance man-hours, data center rack costs, electricity costs, and hardware manufacturer maintenance updates.
merit - Because it is exclusively owned by one company, it is not affected by other users' systems.
- Performance of machines and resources such as CPU/memory is clear.
Demerit ・There is a risk of server outage due to physical hardware failure.
・It is difficult to improve the specifications of hardware resources.
・When initially introducing hardware, it takes time to size and estimate the system.
comprehensive evaluation ・Since server machine/hardware resources can be used to the maximum, when developing a mission-critical system that does not go through the external Internet, a physical server can maintain stable and high performance than a cloud. I can.

・In performance evaluation compared to cloud services, some studies have shown that the performance results are more than three times higher.

*Beyond does not design or construct on-premises (physical server) infrastructure environments or provide on-site support. In addition, even in an on-premises (physical server) infrastructure environment, we can provide server operation, maintenance, and monitoring (24 hours a day, 365 days a year).
