What are Amazon Web Services and the benefits?

Zoosh

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides on-demand cloud computing platforms (also called web services, e.g. Managed Database). The technology allows partners to have at their disposal a full-fledged virtual cluster of computers, like a dynamic private datacentre, available all the time, through the internet. It is the largest and most innovative player on the market ranking high in Gartner’s magic quadrants year after year.

What makes AWS powerful is the vast number of services they provide on top of the pure infrastructure. They do not just offer virtual machines but platforms and software as services (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) for different levels of requirements. When using higher-level cloud managed services, it means you would not need to spend precious time and effort on maintaining virtual machines and application servers, saving time to focus on the business logic and the application itself.

Benefits of moving to Amazon Cloud Services

There are many benefits to moving to the Amazon Web Services platform from a business perspective, even if it is just partially.

Low-cost infrastructure platform

Having cloud computing and storage capacity available on-demand means that customers only pay for what they use. Resources can be obtained and released in seconds - a new service can go global in minutes. What’s more, this flexibility and elasticity do not come with a high price tag – thanks to AWS global footprint, efficiencies and economies of scale allow passing savings to the customers. Multiple pricing options make sure that everyone’s needs are covered.

Secure and reliable service

Security is the most common concern when people first consider moving to the cloud. In contrast, the AWS cloud is probably more secure than any on-premise datacentres. Customers can leverage the tight security measurements and Amazon’s Assurance Program, including a long list of industry-standard certificates (ISO, SOC, PCI DSS, HIPAA and many others).

Everything in one place

AWS service has breadth and depth, with more than 200 services spanning across core computing services, business processes, databases, analytics to machine learning – and the pace of innovation is rapid, meaning the service portfolio is continuously growing. The AWS portfolio has products and services to suit all types of businesses and at whatever stage they are at in their cloud journey.

Scalable and flexible

If your business is looking to scale up or down, AWS technology offers scalability and flexibility. With it being a pay as you go model, costs are directly reflected by what is consumed. The ecosystem is flexible enough for you to choose a preferred operating system, application, programming language - this makes it even easier to migrate from one platform to another.
