What you need to know about AWS cloud computing 

AWS cloud computing is one of the fastest growing segments in the tech industry, but there are still many people who don’t quite understand what it does or how it can be useful to them. Cloud computing can help you save time and money and can make everyday tasks more convenient, which are all good reasons to know more about it. Here’s an introduction to AWS cloud computing that will help you understand what makes it so powerful and why you should consider using it in your business strategy moving forward.

AWS Cloud Basics 

The AWS Cloud is a collection of technologies and services that can be accessed over the Internet and on which developers can run applications. Amazon Web Services provides different options for storing data, including relational database management systems like MySQL, noSQL document databases such as MongoDB, and unstructured storage options such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). Networking services include Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Simple Email Service (SES), Domain Name System (DNS), Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), Amazon Route 53 and many more. The AWS Cloud also offers database services like Relational Database Service (RDS) and its petabyte-scale data warehousing service known as Redshift; it also offers analytics tools like Kinesis Analytics. 

AWS Storage Options 

S3, EBS and Glacier: AWS has three storage options that all compete for your data but are best suited for different types of use cases. Cloud Computing power & data centers: Amazon Web Services is a complex network of hundreds of thousands of servers running in various locations around the world. That infrastructure provides more power and scalability than any other public cloud provider. The last couple years has seen Microsoft Azure move towards close parity with AWS so many people are starting to consider other options as well, but it would be very hard to argue that anyone comes close right now if you care at all about performance and reliability. Content Delivery Network (CDN): Amazon also offers a content delivery network (CDN) as part of its overall compute, storage, and database offerings called AWS CloudFront. 

AWS Networking Options 

When it comes to AWS networking options, there are five different ways that Amazon’s services can communicate. There is no right or wrong option and each have their own specific use cases. Knowing what these use cases are can help you determine which one is right for your application’s needs. Some of these include Direct Connect, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Internet Gateway, NAT Gateway, and VPN. All except for VPCs allow your AWS applications to communicate with your existing data center over an IP connection. A VPC only allows communication between EC2 instances within a VPC or with devices outside of a VPC using IPv6 addresses or AWS Direct Connect connections. 

AWS Databases 

If a company is already managing their database, they will be much less likely to adopt AWS cloud services because they must now manage a second database instance. If your company’s application stores data, it makes sense to investigate how you can use AWS to manage that data. Amazon Web Services offers relational and non-relational databases. MySQL and MongoDB are two relational databases AWS manages for you (for an additional fee). It also offers DynamoDB, an object-based NoSQL database that works similarly with Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) objects by design.
