Amazon Cloud Services with Hicron Software House

Amazon Cloud Services is a full-service, evolving cloud computing platform powered by Amazon featuring Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings. 

Amazon Cloud services

Among the most popular Amazon Cloud services are: 

  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). It provides virtual servers (EC2 instances) for compute capacity. The EC2 offers numerous instance types with varying capacities and sizes, adjusted to specific workload types and applications, such as memory-intensive and accelerated-computing needs. AWS also provides an Auto Scaling tool to maintain instance condition and performance. 
  • Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). It provides scalable object storage for data backup, collection, and analytics.  
  • AWS Lambda. A serverless, event-driven compute function that lets one run code for any type of application or backend service without provisioning or managing servers.

AWS Cloud Services for business efficiency 

Amazon Web Services offers a pay-as-you-go model. It can be either on a per-hour or per-second basis. AWS also offers an option to reserve a set amount of compute capacity at a discounted price for customers who decide to prepay, or who sign up for one- or three-year usage commitments. 

Cloud Services of Amazon also offer AWS Free Tier. This is another possible option for using AWS services. AWS Free Tier allows beginners and smaller players to gain first-hand experience with AWS services for free. They can access 100 products and start building on the AWS platform. Free Tier is offered in three different options: 12 months free, trials, and always free. 

The broad pool of billing options provided by Amazon Cloud services contributes to its wide popularity but is not the only argument for opting for AWS cloud services.
