Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a cloud computing platform that offers a wide range of cloud-based services, including compute power, storage, databases, networking, analytics, machine learning, security, and more. AWS is a subsidiary of, Inc. and was launched in 2006, initially as a platform for developers to build and host web applications.

AWS provides a wide range of cloud services that can be used by businesses and individuals to build, deploy, and manage their applications and infrastructure. These services can be accessed through a web-based interface or API and can be provisioned and scaled up or down as needed, based on usage patterns and demand.

AWS offers a pay-as-you-go pricing model, which means that customers only pay for the services they use, and are not required to make any upfront investments in hardware or infrastructure. This makes it an attractive option for businesses of all sizes, as they can benefit from the scalability and flexibility of cloud computing without having to make significant capital investments.

In addition to its cloud services, AWS also offers a range of tools and resources to help customers manage and optimize their AWS deployments. These include tools for monitoring and logging, security and compliance, identity and access management, and more.
