10 Things you need to know prior to using Amazon Web Services
Selecting cloud service provider over the other varies and depends on the needs of each individual customer and workloads.
1. Digitalization: AWS have incorporated machine learning tools and a number of features targeted at the Internet of Things, while customers can tap either cloud to variously build a mobile app or even create high performance computing environment depending on their needs.
2. Cost Effective: AWS offers low, pay-as-you-go pricing with no up-front expenses or long-term commitments. This enables us to build and manage a global infrastructure at scale and pass cost saving benefits.
3. Agility and Instant Elasticity: AWS provides a massive global cloud infrastructure that allows to quickly innovate, experiment and iterate. Instead of waiting weeks or months for hardware, we can instantly deploy new applications, instantly scale up as your workload grows, and instantly scale down based on demand. Whether need one virtual server or thousands, whether need them for a few hours or 24/7, we still only pay for what we use.
4. Open and Flexible: AWS is a language and operating system agnostic platform. We can choose the development platform or programming model that makes the most sense for business. We can choose which services to use, one or several and choose how we use them. This flexibility allows us to focus on innovation, not infrastructure.
5. Secure: AWS is secure, durable technology platform with industry-recognized certification and audit: PCI DSS Level 1, ISO 27001, FISMA Moderate, FedRAMP, HIPAA and SOC 1 (formerly referred as SAS 70 and/or SSAE 16) and SOC 2 audit report. The provided service and data center have multiple layers of operational and physical security to ensure integrity and safety of data.
6. Availability: AWS offers EC2 instances which can be tailored with a large number of options. It also provides related services such as Elastic Beanstalk for app deployment, EC2 Container service, AWS Lambda and Auto scaling.
7. Storage: AWS storage includes its Simple Storage (S3), Elastic Block Storage (EBS), Elastic File System (EFS), Import/Export large volume data transfer service, Glacier archive backup and Storage Gateway which integrates with on premise environments.
8. Networking: AWS offer “excellent” networking capabilities allowing applications to be deployed on a local or global level, relying on server load balancing components (AWS’ Elastic Load Balancing) and direct network connectivity to link with on premise systems.
9. Databases: AWS support relational databases (Amazon Relational Database Service and Redshift), and NoSQL data bases (Amazon DynamoDB).
10. Pricing: Pricing can be a huge attraction for those considering a move to the cloud and for good reason: there has been a continued downward trend on prices for some time now. AWS provides a price calculator to calculate the Ownership pricing.
