Cloud hosting services provide hosting on virtual servers which derive their computing resource from various underlying networks of physical servers.
Clients can tap into their service as frequently as required, at any stage. This results in cost savings for they have to pay for only what they are using. Also, since they can access it at any time, they don’t need to make any additional payments.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud service platform, providing compute power, database storage, content delivery and other functional services to help the already existing and new businesses grow. AWS is a suite of hosting products that aims to reduce the headache out of traditional hosting solutions. Services like Dropbox and websites such as Reddit all use AWS.
Amazon took a very convenient approach towards pricing, when launching AWS. For every service you pay for what you use. This makes way for better server infrastructure, as traffic tends to be very voluptuous especially the site is larger. Traditional hardware goes unutilized for 90% of its lifecycle. The AWS pricing helps deal with this problem by keeping it cost-effective during the slow times.
Many people do not use AWS due lack of knowledge and information. EC2 is not like a traditional hosted solution. It is designed to bring servers online as well as offline very quickly as per need. This is why many IT professionals were dubious about using EC2 because of the cost associated. The free tier resolves this by providing sufficient credit to run an EC2 micro instance 24/7 all month. It comes with features like S3 storage, EC2 compute hours, Elastic Load Balancer time, and a lot more. This gives developers a chance to try out AWS's API in their software
The speed of AWS cannot be overlooked. The Elastic Block Storage is nearly as fast as S3, but provides features that somewhat differ. EC2 Compute Units give Xeon-class performance at an hourly rate. It provides better reliability than most private data centers in the world, and if there is a problem, you're usually still online, but with reduced capacity.
Access to the AWS resources can be controlled through the IAM (Identity and Access Management). The privileges for user actions greatly reduce any malpractices. AWS also provide VPC. Hosting a website and web application on AWS restricts unwanted access to the resources. You can gain access to these resources hosted in the private network using the Amazon VPN or some open source service like OpenVPN.
The most important feature of AWS is its flexibility. All the services work, connect and communicate together with your application resulting into automatic judgement of demand. Combined with the API and the Amazon Machine Images created, you can have a completely customized solution that provides for a server instance in less than 10 minutes, and is ready to accept connections once it comes online.
