27 Sep 12 Amazon Web Services (AWS) Services you MUST know
In our previous blog, we discussed what AWS services is and how it functions. We will now explore the multitude of services this cloud giant entails.
The AWS edge
AWS eliminates the need for a traditional physical data center for a company to build and maintain its digital infrastructure. The AWS cloud provides infrastructure reliability, guarantee of security compliance and flexible infrastructure capacity tailored to your needs and budget.
In this article, we will shed light on twelve of these services.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
Amazon EC2, as complicated as it may sound, is simply a web service that provides secure, flexible compute capacity in the Amazon cloud. Its time and cost efficient structure allows users to launch as many virtual servers as required and manage security, networking and storage. The Auto Scaling tool is a feature that allows users to increase or decrease capacity without affecting the performance of the virtual servers.
Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)
Amazon S3 is essentially an on object storage service designed to provide scalability, data storage, security and analytics. Business of all sizes and industries can utilize this platform to manage and secure copious amounts of data from a variety of sources, conduct big data analysis, and handle all kinds of devices including those part of the Internet of Things (IoT).
There are options for short term storage (Infrequent Access Storage) and long term storage (Amazon glacier), along with several other components.
Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS)
Amazon RDS is a managed database service that provides cost-efficient, scalable capacity with the ability to automate administrative tasks, freeing time and resources to focus on core jobs. Amazon RDS is offered on several database instance types – enhanced for memory, performance or I/O.
AWS Migration Hub
The AWS Migration hub enables users to migrate applications, servers, databases, servers and data onto its public cloud. This platform shifts the need to manage data from a physical location to cloud management.
Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
Amazon VPC provides users with a logically isolated part of the AWS cloud to launch AWS resources in a virtual network specified by the user. The network gives you the autonomy to exert complete control with features such as flexibility to select your own IP address range, create subnets and develop route tables and network gateways.
Amazon Development tools
Users can use AWS command-line tools and software development kits (SDKs) to manage and monitor application, websites and devices.
Amazon Web Services Config
AWS Config helps oversee the AWS infrastructure, manages security and ensures compliance with standards. It assists in staying abreast of resource inventory and infrastructure changes from one easy to use management panel.
AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM)
This tool enables users to securely control access to AWS services and resources. It allows you to create and manage AWS users and groups and their access to different resources.
This tool enables users to gather and analyze real-time streaming data to extract useful insights and use it to make better decisions. This tool is not limited in its ability to process data of any size and can do it with a variety of tools. Machine learning is used to analyze real-time data and respond promptly to changes in the environment.
Amazon Artificial Intelligence
Amazon AI allows users to utilize capabilities such video and image analysis, natural language, virtual assistants and forecasting. The tools include Amazon Lex for chatbot technology, Amazon Polly for text-to-speech translation and Amazon Rekognition for image and video analysis.
AWS Mobile Hub
The AWS Mobile Hub shortens the process of configuring and testing mobile applications by allowing you to customize your features from a consolidated console, saving time and resources.
