When launching a new online service, companies can find many benefits using some Amazon AWS platforms. As an experienced developer, I have used many of these services and can recommend them to others starting online services or dynamic sites.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) was launched in 2002, already using one of the largest Internet marketers on the Internet. AWS provides a set of web services now known as the “cloud.” AWS currently provides about 20 web services that are used in the cloud. Undoubtedly the most popular are Elastic Cloud Compute and Simple Storage Services, known as EC2 and S3, respectively.
The service that current site owners may use is Amazon Simple Storage (S3). The S3 is an online file storage system with built-in high redundancy and unlimited scalability. Any existing file (up to 5 GB per file) can be easily migrated from the site to S3, allowing it to be used as a content delivery network (CDN). Amazon's AWS blog infrastructure is based on a very fast Internet survey, which means that content would typically be delivered much faster if it were delivered with cheaper shared hosting accounts. Due to the relatively low cost of gigabytes of storage and data transfer, many site owners who currently use web hosting with limited storage and bandwidth may experience immediate cost reductions when switching to S3 content delivery.
For large sites and online services that provide large amounts of data, Amazon S3's cost performance can be very high and in some cases an essential tool if other services are unable to store such large amounts of data. For a business considering launching a content service such as online file-sharing or a photo or video sharing site, Amazon S3 offers many benefits and performance that would otherwise require a large initial release.
Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) is designed for a server that hosts what S3 means for file storage – it's infinitely scalable and cost-effective. With EC2, you can create your own group of virtual servers running in the Amazon Server cloud. You can choose to run a low-power virtual server or a group of thousands of high-performance virtual servers, whatever the difference between them. Each of your servers is called an “instance” and you can choose to use one billion hours of copies.
The ability to choose how long to use an instance, as well as how robust it is, allows new businesses to test a new powerful web application without the need for expensive hardware. This reduces the many risks often faced by new beginners, who calculate how much power they will need when a site becomes popular. Underestimation of capabilities can lead to service disruptions, and overestimation will make the service less cost-effective.
The EC2 platform is also fully programmable, which means that companies can build intelligent systems that meet the capacity constraints of each case. For example, if the server load is high, more instances may run and the system load is shared. When the load is reduced, unnecessary cases can be reduced while maintaining constant cost and efficiency.
There are currently many examples of Windows and Linux Amazon machines (AMIs) that users can use as a starting point for optimizing their virtual servers. User-contributed AMIs with dedicated server configurations are also available.
For new beginners looking to migrate and existing web services, hosting EC2 servers with S3 as a content delivery network may be the ideal solution. An additional advantage for those who can use both services is that in the network between EC2 and S3 accounts you will not normally have to pay for bandwidth.
