What is AWS?

In brief, the cloud computing platform, AWS offers lots of services and tools for building, deploying, and managing applications and infrastructure. Evidently, the major elements of AWS are computing resources, databases, storage, and other services. Moreover, these services are available on pay-as-you-go pricing. So, organizations can scale their infrastructure in no time with great ease using AWS. As a result, they experience huge savings in the infrastructure cost. It improves their agility.

  5. CloudFront. In fact, CloudFront is a CDN. In other words, it is a global Content Delivery Network. So, we can use CloudFront for the purpose of delivering applications, videos, and data faster.
  6. Identity and Access Management (IAM). In order to access AWS services we use IAM. So, we use IAM for authentication.
  7. Route 53. In fact, Route S3 is a cloud DNS. Like other services, it is also scalable with high available.
  8. Lambda: Another important AWS service is AWS Lambda. It is also a computing platform. So, its main feature is being serverless so that users need no manage servers.
  9. DynamoDB. AWS also has a NoSQL database. It is called DynamoDB. It is fast and flexible.
