    What is Amazon Web Services ?

    Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 175 fully featured services from data centers globally.

    How does Amazon Web Services work?

    Amazon Web Service provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet. AWS owns and maintains the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.

    Six Advantages and Benefits of Amazon Web Services

    Cloud Benefits – Trade capital for variable expense icon

    • Trade capital expense for variable expense

    Instead of having to invest heavily in data centers and servers before you know how you’re going to use them, you can only pay when you consume computing resources, and only pay for how much you consume.

    • Scaling give you a BIG Benefit

    By using AWS, you can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own. Because usage from hundreds of thousands of customers are aggregated in the cloud, providers such as Amazon Web Services can achieve higher economies of scale which translates into lower pay as you go prices.

    • Capacity Planning become easy

    Eliminate guessing on your infrastructure capacity needs. When you make a capacity decision prior to deploying an application, you often either end up sitting on expensive idle resources or dealing with limited capacity. With cloud computing, these problems go away. You can access as much or as little as you need, and scale up and down as required with only a few minutes notice.

    • Increase speed and agility

    In a cloud computing environment, new IT resources are only ever a click away, which means you reduce the time it takes to make those resources available to your developers from weeks to just minutes. This results in a dramatic increase in agility for the organization, since the cost and time it takes to experiment and develop is significantly lower.

    • Stop spending money on 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.

    • Reaching out to your global audience is just a few clicks away.

    Easily deploy your application in multiple regions around the world with just a few clicks. This means you can provide a lower latency and better experience for your customers simply and at minimal cost.
