Amazon Web Services (AWS) are, as you may expect, a subsidiary of Amazon, the global ecommerce giant, and they have used their expertise and innovative culture to drive forward a cloud computing platform that provides users the ability to scale their requirements up or down on-demand. The platform is subscription based so users need only ever pay for the computing power they use.

Virtual machines (VM’s) are servers that can be deployed on the cloud in a matter of minutes as opposed to traditional, capital intensive, in-house server racks that have to be scaled (and paid) for maximum expected capacity even if this is never utilised.

Advantages of using AWS – Cost and Speed

Cost – trade variable expense for capital expense

Cost – Economies of scale as costs are aggregated over 1000’s of users

Cost – Capacity and requirement always balanced

Speed – deployment in minutes not weeks

Speed – Agility and flexibility reduces time to market providing competitive advantage

Speed – Global network provides low latency which allows you to reach your customers wherever they are
