Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a cloud computing platform that provides a range of services, including computing, storage, networking, and security. Some of the most important services offered by AWS are:
- Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud): This service provides scalable computing capacity in the cloud, allowing you to launch and manage virtual servers (called “instances”) on demand. You can choose from a variety of instance types and sizes to meet your specific needs.
- Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service): This service provides scalable object storage in the cloud, allowing you to store and retrieve unlimited amounts of data from anywhere on the web. You can use S3 to store files, images, videos, and other types of data.
- Amazon RDS (Relational Database Service): This service makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. You can choose from a variety of database engines, such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Oracle, and scale your database up or down as needed.
- Amazon VPC (Virtual Private Cloud): This service allows you to create a virtual network in the cloud and launch your resources, such as EC2 instances and RDS databases, into that network. You can use VPC to create a secure, isolated environment for your resources.
