Affordable Cloud Services and Storage Options
One of the hallmarks of AWS is its virtually unlimited storage capacity with EBS (Elastic Block Store), Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), and Amazon CloudFront. While EBS provides persistent block level storage for Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) instances, Amazon S3 can be used for disaster recovery, archiving, and backup, for instance. Amazon CloudFront, on the other hand, is a content delivery service designed for businesses and developers. Its low-cost and pay-as-you-go options allows companies to use IT resources more efficiently with the added flexibility of knowing that additional services and capacity is available when they need it.
AWS networking services include scalable DNS, private network connections to the cloud, and tools to create logistically isolated networks. Some of the networking services include Amazon Direct Connect and Amazon VPC (Virtual Private Cloud). Amazon Direct Connect service allows users to bypass the internet and connect directly to AWS’ cloud while Amazon VPC is a service that creates a private cloud within Amazon Web Services, while offering built-in security, including network access control lists and security groups.
Cloud Application Services
The cloud application services of AWS are a comprehensive set of IT resources that enable applications to use push notification, streaming, queuing and email delivery provided with Amazon SWS (Simple Workflow Service) and Amazon SQS (Simple Queue Service). Amazon SWS is a task coordination and management service for the Amazon Web Services cloud.
