Amazon is the largest and most mature of the real cloud providers. Most “aaS” solution providers use Amazon as the real backbone of their product. Their main competition is Google and Microsoft’s Azure, the main difference between them being Amazon’s IaaS focus while the others focus more on PaaS offerings. IaaS is usually the lowest cost offering for someone that wants to develop and maintain their own complete infrastructure (OS, networking, apps, etc..). Our in house engineers can help you create your own cloud portal using the many separate service modules that Amazon provides. Our channel pricing model, coupled with our ability to create custom cloud environments for your specific requirements, make Amazon a much simpler and cost effective solution than it appears.
Amazon modules include:
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers and system administrators.
Amazon EC2 Container Service is a highly scalable, high performance container management service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run distributed applications on a managed cluster of Amazon EC2 instances.
AWS Lambda is a compute service that runs your code in response to events and automatically manages the compute resources for you, making it easy to build applications that respond quickly to new information.
Auto Scaling allows you to automatically scale your Amazon EC2 capacity up or down according to conditions that you define.
Amazon VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) lets you provision a private, isolated section of the AWS Cloud where you can launch AWS resources in a virtual network that you define. With Amazon VPC, you can define a virtual network topology that closely resembles a traditional network that you might operate in your own datacenter.
Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple Amazon EC2 instances.
Amazon Glacier is an extremely low-cost storage service that provides secure and durable storage for data archiving and backup.
Amazon EBS (Elastic Block Store) provides block level storage volumes for use with Amazon EC2 instances. Amazon EBS volumes are off-instance storage that persists independently from the life of an instance.
AWS Storage Gateway is a service connecting an on-premises software appliance with cloud-based storage to provide seamless and secure integration between an organization’s on-premises IT environment and AWS’s storage infrastructure.
Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery web service. It integrates with other Amazon Web Services to give developers and businesses an easy way to distribute content to end users with low latency, high data transfer speeds, and no commitments.
Amazon Web Services provides fully managed relational and NoSQL database services, as well as fully managed in-memory caching as a service and a fully managed petabyte-scale data-warehouse service. Or, you can operate your own database in the cloud on Amazon EC2 and Amazon EBS.
Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) provides a fully redundant data storage infrastructure for storing and retrieving any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the Web.
Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, or PostgreSQL database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while managing time-consuming database administration tasks.
DynamoDB is a highly scalable, fully managed NoSQL database service. Its seamless throughput and storage scaling, as well as automatic 3-way replication frees you from time-consuming database administration tasks and allows you to focus on your application and business.
Amazon Redshift is a fully managed, easily scalable petabyte-scale data warehouse service that works with your existing business intelligence tools. It delivers fast query performance by using columnar storage technology and by parallelizing queries across multiple nodes.
Amazon ElastiCache is a web service that makes it easy to deploy, operate, and scale an in-memory cache in the cloud.
These and the many more Amazon modules allow us to create almost any kind of cloud portal required.
