AWS provides pay-as-you-go infrastructure that allows businesses to scale their IT resources with the business demand. Prior to the proliferation of cloud providers, businesses would turn to smaller localised companies, such as web hosts and software development agencies, to provide them with what they needed. Over recent years, things have greatly progressed as cloud services have become more expansive, integrated and able to cater to more complex business requirements than ever before.
When you first create an account with AWS and open up the console menu for the first time, the expansive nature of the services that they provide becomes very apparent.
Here, you’ll find all of the most expected services such as online storage facilities such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Relational database hosting, Amazon Route 53 (DNS) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2),Amazon Lambda, Amazon Lightsail and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, creating an array of infrastructure options large enough to host any environment.
