What are the Important AWS Cloud Services?
  • Popular Amazon Web Services under the category of compute are Amazon EC2, AWS Lambda, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, among others. Let’s discuss each of them in detail.

Amazon EC2:

  1. Amazon EC2 is an abbreviation for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. It is a cloud computing web service that provides secure and resizable compute capacity in the cloud. With the help of Amazon EC2, organizations can obtain and configure virtual compute capacity in the cloud. Companies and organisations availing of this service have an option to select from a variety of operating systems and resource configurations like memory, CPU, storage according to the requirements of their application as well as the company. The advantage of using Amazon EC2 is easy scalability, the capacity can be increased or decreased within minutes. The application can also automatically scale itself depending on the need and requirement. Companies can also use one or more than one (even thousands) server instances simultaneously.Start your free trial here.
  2. Amazon EC2 is integrated with almost all AWS services like Amazon S3, Amazon RDS and Amazon VPC and hence it provides a complete, secure solution for all computing applications.

AWS Lambda

  1. In this section, we are going to talk about another important AWS cloud service in the compute service that goes by the name of AWS Lambda.
  2. AWS Lambda allows you to run code without the need of managing any server. The payment model is also very flexible as the company only needs to pay for the compute time they consume and not when the code is not running. This service helps an application to run with zero administration. All you need to do is to upload the code and AWS Lambda takes care of everything else that will run and scale your code. The code can be set up in order to automatically trigger from other AWS services or it can be called directly from any web or mobile app.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  1. The last important service under the category ‘compute’ that we would discuss in this blog is AWS Elastic Beanstalk. This is basically a Platform as a Service (or PaaS) and it facilitates quick deployment of applications as it provides all the services that an application need. This service by Amazon supports a large range of platforms like Nodejs, Java among others.
  2. The only thing you have to do is to upload your code and then AWS Elastic Beanstalk handles the deployment automatically. It handles everything right from capacity provisioning to load balancing to auto-scaling to application health monitoring. However, with AWS Elastic Beanstalk, you can also retain full control over the AWS resources that are powering your application. You can access the underlying resources at any time. Hence, all you need to do is to develop an application and deploy on Elastic Beanstalk.
