What is AWS Cloud Computing?
- AWS stands for Amazon Web Services.
- It provides different services such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and packaged software as a service (SaaS).
- Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources over the Internet with the pay-as-you-go pricing model.
- Instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centers and servers, you can access technology services, such as computing power, storage, and databases, on an as-needed basis from a cloud provider like Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The benefit of Cloud Computing
- Reduce Trade capital expense: Cost saving is one of the biggest Cloud Computing benefits.
If you need to run the application into your own data center and then we have to set up your own data center where we have to manage the building, networking, computer power, storage, electricity, and more.
Instead of having to invest heavily in data centers and servers, we can pay only what you consume computing resources, services.
- Long-term planning results can reduce the cost with different Services available in AWS.
- Hourly pricing model — try new products at a very low cost.
- you can manage services and compute capacity on-demand and expand your infrastructure as needed
- Eliminate guessing on your infrastructure capacity needs
- Scale up or down with only a few minutes of notice with autoscaling feature available in AWS.
- The cloud offers almost limitless storage capacity. At any time you can quickly expand your storage capacity with very nominal monthly fees.
3. Performance and Speed:
- Cloud computing allows you to deploy your service quickly in fewer clicks.
- This faster deployment allows focusing on projects, more development, and business growth.
- you can have huge amounts of computing resources available in a short time, with great ease and flexibility, and without expensive investments.
- New resources are only a click away
- Developers can get resources in minutes instead of waiting for weeks
4. Reliability and Security
- The data, store in AWS is always available, even in the event of a corporate device failure.
- AWS provides your own security controls in place for the data and applications you deploy and store in the cloud using such Security Group, NACL, WAF firewalls, and more.
- AWS Service such as Identity and Access Management (IAM) and CloudTrail to hold track activity of various clients.
- Server centers are staffed 24×7 with a trained security team, and access is approved carefully on the least privileged.
5. Stop spending money running and maintaining data centers
- Focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure.
- Cloud computing lets you focus on your own customers, rather than on the heavy lifting of racking, stacking, and powering servers.
6. Go Global in Minutes
- Deploy application close to customer for lower latency and compliance requirements
- Better end-user experience at minimal cost
- The cloud computing platform helps employees who are located in different geographies to collaborate in a highly convenient and secure manner.
7. Consumption-Based Pricing: AWS provides many tools and service which can give a detailed breakdown of charges, budget based alerts and can restrict an AWS user to use the specific services and resources.
