Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a comprehensive, evolving cloud computing platform provided by Amazon. It provides a mix of infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and packaged software as a service (SaaS) offerings.
From data warehousing to deployment tools, directories to content delivery, over 50 services are available in just a few mouse clicks with AWS. New services are quick to provision, without upfront capital expense, allowing enterprises, start-ups, SMBs and customers in the public sector to access the building blocks they need to respond quickly to changing business requirements.
Security in the cloud is recognized as better than on-premises. Broad security certification and accreditation, data encryption at rest and in-transit, hardware security modules and strong physical security all contribute to a more secure way to manage your business’ IT infrastructure.
Controlling, auditing and managing identity, configuration and usage is a crucial part of today’s IT infrastructure landscape. With the AWS Cloud, these capabilities come built into the platform helping you meet your compliance, governance and regulatory requirements.
Choosing between your existing investment in infrastructure and moving to the cloud is not a binary decision. Deep features, dedicated connectivity, identity federation and integrated tools allow you to run ‘hybrid’ applications across on-premises and cloud services.
