Introduction to AWS
Amazon Web Services (AWS) distributes cloud computing services which provide on-demand
computing resources and services in the cloud. AWS supplies the resource which can be used for rapid
business growth. Amazon Web Services is a loosely coupled collection of “cloud” infrastructure services
that allows customers to “rent” computing resources. The resources like database storage and
networking, content delivery compute power and also some efficient service that helps the client
business to grow in rapid and efficient speed.
Internet based computing that simply referred as ‘the Cloud’ is the delivery of on-demand
computing resources – everything from applications to data centers – over the Internet on a pay – for –
AWS Helps to?
AWS helps to manage and build your application and websites more efficiently.
- Host a dynamic website, or web app. These websites can include classic three-tier applications.
- Its stores Public or Private data that can use to deliver through internet as a static link.
These services operate from 13 geographical regions across the world. The most central and
best-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud.
The AWS Management Console is a web application that helps for managing Amazon Web
Services. The console provides an intuitive user interface for performing many AWS tasks, such as
working with Amazon S3 buckets, launching and connecting to Amazon EC2 instances, setting Amazon
Cloud Watch alarms, and so on. Each service has its own console, which you can access from the AWS
It helps to manage our resources and status of it accurately by using this AWS console; we can
also access wide range of Amazon service using this console.
Key Components of AWS
AWS components are loosely coupled, you’d be able to mix and match only what you need but here is an overview of the key services.
- Simple Storage Services(S3)
- Elastic Compute Cloud
- Amazon Route 53
- Simple Email Service
- Elastic Book Store
Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT infrastructure services to businesses in
the form of web services — now commonly known as cloud computing. One of the key benefits
of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with
low variable costs that scale with your business. With the Cloud, businesses no longer need to
plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance.
With the help of AWS Toolkit we can able to easily deploy, manage, and debug a .Net
application using visual studio. We can also monitor our application by using AWS(Amazon Web Service) console to
find the bottlenecks, Inbound and Outbound traffic to the application.
