Amazon’s customer obsession and value-oriented product design is a core factor in its strength of products and services. The same product design factor can be seen in Amazon Web Services (AWS). It is a subsidiary of Amazon, which provides a pay-as-you-go pricing model for on demand cloud computing platforms and APIs. These services are used by thousands of organizations all over the world to support their technical infrastructure needs. AWS dominates the public cloud market with 41.5% usage on the Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platform. The Forrester New wave Q2 2020 report names AWS marketplace as a leader in SaaS marketplaces across ten criteria.
AWS has deployed five times more cloud infrastructure than its top 14 competitors have combined. According to a study, about one-third of the people surfing the internet visit websites, which are powered by AWS. AWS continues to lower its cost of cloud computing to the users over the years. In a comparison to on-premises solution, they are 76% more cost effective in web applications, 51% better in big data applications and 58% better in business applications.

AWS hosts more than 200 services and continues to expand. Some of the top services according to their area of use are listed below.
Compute: Managing the capacity and compute requirements by yourself can quickly turn into a nightmare and it might not scale with the growth of an organization. A lot of organizations rely on the high performant and scalable cloud service for processing and analyzing data. It makes it possible to have virtually unlimited compute and storage capacity, engineers and researchers. Some of the well-known services provided by Amazon in the Compute segment are listed below.
Storage: With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) and more data-oriented software, data quickly expands and the need to store it as well. It is required to backup or archive data and access the data reliably for further processing. AWS provides the following listed services to manage and store data.
Database: Data coming from a lot of sources can be stored in structured or unstructured formats. This data can then be used to access, process and analyze the data for various use cases. A lot of organizations are also migrating their data to the cloud databases for much reliable and secure access. AWS provides a lot of services to choose the best for your organization.
Networking and Content Delivery: Data from a database will be accessed through the network and its throughput depends on the content delivery of the network. A well-managed private network with a high-speed content delivery system will go a long way in serving the customers quickly and efficiently. Some of the AWS services listed help to equip your organization with secure and high-speed services.
Analytics: Data lying in the storage without analysis is like having a saw machine but not knowing how to use it on a log of wood. Analytics provide an efficient way to understand the data of an organization and to apply forecasting on that data for improving business and customer engagement. Some of the AWS services of analyzing data are:
Containers: Containerization technology like Docker and orchestration technology like Kubernetes have totally transformed the technical landscape for automating deployments, scaling and managing containers. It paves way for microservices architecture web development for building modular, maintainable and isolated services that satisfy specific business requirements. Some of the containerization and orchestrations services provided through AWS are listed below.
Machine Learning: With constantly evolving technology there is a need to develop smarter applications that can understand and aid humans in their everyday life. These range anywhere from digitizing application forms using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to using it for natural language processing for making a conversation. Amazon provides a lot of tools with built in machine learning algorithms which avoid the hassle of traditional machine learning complexity. Some of the tools in this segment are:
Amazon CloudWatch: It is a DevOps cloud service for monitoring and observing applications and providing actionable insights. Furthermore, it can get a unified view of operational health, respond to system wide performance changes, detect anomalies in your environments and optimize resource utilization.
Security, Identity and Compliance: Cyber threats are on a rise and people are aware to not rely on a poorly secured application for making purchases or to provide their private information. It becomes necessary to apply security measures and enable authorization and authentication policies to secure the applications.
AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) manages the access to other AWS services by giving a fine-grained access control to AWS resources. It can be used to create and manage AWS users and groups, provide permissions to allow or deny access to resources, and to enable multi-factor authentication.
Deploying a software application using AWS services requires proper planning, experience and expertise in the tools and technologies for cost effectiveness and compute optimization. As the technology keeps changing, the deployment team should be flexible enough to accept changes and embrace best practices. Security, scalability and cost-effectiveness should be given the highest priority during development. A lack of expertise in any of the above-mentioned segments can lead for a failed or delayed deployment. This is where the Cazton team can help you.
