AWS is a cloud service provider that is leading in the cloud market with 32.3% of the market share. The services offered by AWS are used by millions of people around the world.
We can also see many of the top companies like NetFlix, Goldman Sachs, Coca-cola, etc using AWS services for the needs of their company and they were having huge savings.
According to the sources from fortune 500 companies around 120+companies use AWS services.
There are many services offered by AWS. Many of you are confused about selecting the appropriate service according to your needs. The AWS Training can help you solve this issue by enabling you with the top AWS services and briefs about them in detail.
In this blog, we have tried to cover almost all types of services.
Now let us see the top 10 services provided by AWS :
- Amazon EC2
- Amazon S3
- Amazon Auto-scaling
- Amazon IAM
- Amazon VPC
- Amazon Cloudfront
- Amazon Lambda
- Amazon SNS
- Amazon Beanstalk
Amazon EC2: Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. This is used by the clients/users for computing services. The instances offered by EC2 act as virtual servers.
Here we can configure the resources like storage, security, etc according to the requirements. In Amazon EC2 we have an option to select the operating system as per our requirement, memory, and also we can include some security protocols. Here when it comes to security we have Key pairs for securely logging into your instance.
Amazon S3: Amazon Simple Storage Service. By the name, we can say that this is a storage service. It is an object-based service. The memory limit of an object is 5TB Here we can store different types of data like word files, image files, video files. audio files, etc. There is no limit for the number of files to store. We have the feature for scaling data automatically according to the requirements.
Generally, you may doubt where data is stored in S3?
The data in S3 is stored in S3 buckets. In simple words, the S3 bucket is considered as a folder, and data objects which are stored in S3 buckets are considered as files. Each bucket should have a different name to generate a unique DNS address.
Amazon Auto-scaling: This is one of the important features that is included in all the recent cloud-based applications. By the name, auto-scaling means that this tool is used to scale up and scale down the resources according to the user requirements.
This tool can be integrated with other tools like EC2 for scaling the computing resources according to the user requirements, this can be used in database services like Dynamo DB and Aurora for scaling according to the traffic. This is used to reduce the wastage of resources and optimize the cost. This can be included for only a resource or the whole application also.
Amazon IAM: Amazon Identity and Access management. This is a security service provided by AWS. This is used to manage user permissions and their level of access to the AWS management console.
It is used to set the user permissions and their roles. It is also used to analyze the behavior of the user.it has the privilege to grant permissions to the different resources of the AWS platform.
AmazonRDS: Amazon Relational database service. It is a database management service.it is a SQL-based database. We can use database products like MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server.
This is also used for the storage of backup snapshots.RDS is one of the reliable databases that restores the instance if there is any damage.
We also include security here. We use IAM for security purposes. This will be helpful in the management of controlling the users from accessing data by putting some permissions.
Amazon VPC: Amazon Virtual private cloud.Amazon By the name we can say it is a private cloud. This is a virtual network that is offered by AWS to run your services in the dedicated part of the cloud[private]. We can launch our EC2 instances.
Here we can decide our IP range, subnets, etc. The subnets of VPC are used for managing and operating the corporate network through VPG[Virtual private gateway].
Amazon CloudFront: As we know that AWS has many users around the world. So there will be a lot of traffic from different regions. This tool is used for distributing the data for multiple locations according to the request. The data centers around the area known as edge locations.
Now if the request is raised by the user the request is forwarded to the nearest Edge location which contains the data in the form of cache which will be helpful for faster delivery. This decreases the time delay.
AWS Lambda: This is a service that is offered by AWS for computing purposes. In EC2 we have to set up our infrastructure. But here the user can manage the code which needs to work as a backend.
Here there is no option for selecting the operating system, memory, etc.
In this, we will be creating some functions to store the code we want to implement. Those functions will be managing the required resources. AWS Lambda supports Java, Python, and Node.js.
The main advantage of AWS Lambda is that we no need to bother about the architecture setup like which operating system to use, how much memory, etc. we can concentrate on how to make the backend code better.
Amazon SNS: Amazon simple notification service. By the name, we can say that this service is used to send notifications to customers.
Here the clients will be having options which they can choose in which topic like alert notification, error notification, etc. we can get the notification through the mail, mobile SMS, mobile push notifications[pop notifications], etc.
SNS can be used for notifications for Application to Application also.
Amazon Elastic Beanstalk: As we know, if we want to build an infrastructure manually it takes a lot of time. Let us take an example of designing the architecture of a website. This involves creating instances, storage, database, etc.
Now, this tool helps us in creating the infrastructure in a few clicks. That is comparatively more time-saving than the manual method.
This helps the developer to concentrate on the efficiency of the application rather than focusing on changing the infrastructure according to the requirements. Elastic Beanstalk supports applications developed in Java, .NET, Node.js, PHP, Python, and Ruby.
Conclusion: So these are some of the top services offered by AWS.I hope you all got a better understanding of all the services. This briefing will be helpful to you in selecting the best service according to your requirement.
