Amazon web services (AWS) Amazon Web Services, a collection of remote computing services, also called web services, make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. It was launched in 2006, Amazon web services provide online services for other web sites or client-side applications. Most of these services are not exposed directly to end users, but instead offer functionality that other developers can use in their applications

The infrastructure consists of compute and storage servers interconnected by high- speed networks and supports a set of services. Key points and instances of AWS: An instance is a virtual server with a well specified set of resources including: CPU cycles, main memory, secondary storage, and communication and I/O bandwidth. Network Address Translation (NAT) maps external IP addresses to internal ones. In June 2007, Amazon claimed that more than 180,000 developers had signed up to use Amazon Web Services, which is a key success for AWS Some parts of Amazon Web Services suffered a major outage. A portion of volumes using the Elastic Block Store (EBS) service became "stuck" and were unable to fulfill read/write requests. It took at least two days for service to be fully restored. On April 30, 2013, AWS began offering a certification program for computer engineers with expertise in cloud computing. In April 2015, AWS was reported to be profitable, with sales of US$ 1.57 billion in the first quarter of the year, and US$ 265 million of operating income. Founder Bezos described it as a fast-growing US$ 5 billion business; analysts described it as "surprisingly more profitable than forecast. The AWS Management Console is the easiest way to access all services, but not all options may be available. EC2- Elastic cloud computing: Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.   Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction. It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment. Amazon EC2 passes on to you the financial benefits of Amazon’s scale. You pay a very low rate for the compute capacity you actually consume. See Amazon EC2 Instance Purchasing Options for a more detailed description. References:
