Planning service
How the planning service works
As part of our “AWS Infrastructure Design for migration or new workloads” offering, we’ll review the needs of your users, and the business outcome you’re looking to achieve, along with your security, cost, and performance constraints. From there we’ll work with your application developers to create a plan for your cloud deployment.

Training service provided
How the training service works
We provide training on AWS fundamentals for developers and operations teams, as well as hands-on training workshops teaching real use cases for specific AWS services. Each workshop has a very specific scope, but these can be combined together to build a bespoke learning path. Our course materials are available for training recipients to take away, and depending on attendee numbers, workshops can run either at our London offices, or on your premises.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
We’ll review your existing applications and services, looking at the needs of your users, and the business outcome you’re looking to achieve. We’ll make sure we understand your security, cost, and performance constraints. From there we’ll work with your application developers to create a plan to migrate your applications to AWS. We’ll often look to simplify and improve services during a migration, and highlight areas where your developers can make application changes to support these goals.

How the support service works
Through our AWS Incident Support offering, we provide a 24x7 helpdesk for your teams to raise incidents with us for immediate attention. Our team of experienced AWS solutions architects will guide your team through troubleshooting and resolving your problem.
Through our AWS Developer Support offering, we provide your team with access to a shared Slack chat channel where they have access to our AWS experts throughout the working day. We also provide surgery hours where your team can book time (in person, or on a video call) with our experts.

Service scope

Service constraints
The Scale Factory is a remote-first team, and we encourage our team to choose the hours that work best for them, as long as these are compatible with the client projects they’re working on. We’ll share our colleagues’ typical working hours and make sure there’s sufficient overlap with your team.

We regularly run coworking and development days to support the growth of our team. These will sometimes impact on our availability to you, and we’ll make sure you’re aware of these dates and how they might affect your project. Some are flexible, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
