What Can Be Done With AWS?
CREATE CLOUD-BASED APPLICATIONS
With Amazon Web Services (AWS), you can build websites and applications in the cloud. No in-house infrastructure, no hardware, no maintenance. Leave all of the setup and maintenance problems to someone else and focus on your application and customers. In the cloud, you and your developers will have access to all of the features and immense power of Amazon Web Services.
SECURE, AUTOMATED BACKUPS
You‘ll never have to worry about data loss again. AWS automatically backs up your applications and data to multiple locations all over the world. Even if one goes down, you‘ll be able to access your mission-critical resources somewhere else with no change in performance. Storage is also highly redundant, and probably far safer than storing things yourself, even with backups.
SCALE UP OR DOWN INSTANTLY
Storage and computing power can be scaled up or down on demand. If you get a spike of users, just temporarily scale up your AWS computing resources to handle it. You can jump from zero to global scale no problem, and you can even set this to happen automatically. If business slows down for a while, switch to cheaper servers to save on your running costs until things pick up again.
BUILD ON A BUDGET
No upfront investment is required. You won‘t have to buy any hardware or servers or pay for anything in advance. You pay as you go and only pay for what you use. This is a huge change in direction for those in the IT industry used to paying out massive sums to build expensive data centers. Once set up, you‘ll likely pay less than you would with an in-house solution.
MIGRATE WHAT YOU HAVE TO THE CLOUD
AWS offers lots of tools to help you move your current websites, data, tools, and applications to the cloud. Whatever you are using now, you can shift it over to start reaping the benefits of cloud computing.
