Auto Scaling helps you maintain application availability and allows you to scale your AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (AWS EC2) capacity up or down automatically according to conditions you define. You can use Auto Scaling to help ensure that you are running your desired number of AWS EC2 instances. Auto Scaling can also automatically increase the number of AWS EC2 instances during demand spikes to maintain performance and decrease capacity during lulls to reduce costs. AWS Elastic Load Balancing offers two types of load balancers that both feature high availability, automatic scaling, and robust security. These include the AWS Classic Load Balancer that routes traffic based on either application or network level information, and the Application Load Balancer that routes traffic based on advanced application level information that includes the content of the request. The Classic Load Balancer is ideal for simple load balancing of traffic across multiple AWS EC2 instances, while the AWS Application Load Balancer is ideal for applications needing advanced routing capabilities, microservices, and container based architectures.

Amazon AWS Cloud VPC Virtual Private Cloud

AWS Virtual Private Cloud (AWS VPC) lets you provision a logically isolated section of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud where you can launch AWS resources in a virtual network that you define. You have complete control over your virtual networking environment, including selection of your own IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways.  Use both IPv4 and IPv6 in your VPC for secure and easy access to resources and applications. Customize the network configuration for your AWS Virtual Private Cloud. Create a public-facing subnet for your web servers that has access to the Internet. Place your backend systems such as databases or application servers in a private-facing subnet with no Internet access. You can leverage multiple layers of security, including security groups and network access control lists, to help control access to EC2 instances in each subnet. You can create a Hardware Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection between your data center and your VPC and leverage the Amazon AWS Cloud as an extension of your data center.

Amazon AWS Cloud EC2 Container Service

AWS EC2 Container Service (ECS) is a highly scalable, high performance container management service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run applications on a managed cluster of EC2 instances. AWS ECS eliminates the need for you to install, operate, and scale your own cluster management infrastructure. With simple API calls, you can launch and stop Docker enabled applications, query the complete state of your cluster, and access many familiar features like security groups, AWS Elastic Load Balancing, EBS volumes, and IAM roles. You can use AWS ECS to schedule the placement of containers across your cluster based on your resource needs and availability requirements. With AWS EC2 Systems Manager, you can collect software configuration and inventory information about your fleet of instances and the software installed on them. You can track detailed system configuration, OS patch levels, application configurations, and other details about your deployment. Integration with AWS Config lets you easily view changes as they occur over time.

Amazon AWS Cloud EC2 System Manager

AWS EC2 is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web scale cloud computing easier for developers. AWS EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction. It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon AWS Cloud proven computing environment. AWS EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity,  as your computing requirements change. AWS EC2 Systems Manager is a management service that helps you automatically collect software inventory, apply OS patches, create system images, and configure Windows and Linux operating systems. These capabilities help you define and track system configurations, prevent drift, and maintain software compliance of your AWS EC2 and on-premises configurations. By providing a management approach that is designed for the scale and agility of the cloud but extends into your on-premises data center, EC2 Systems Manager makes it easier for you to bridge your existing infrastructure with AWS Cloud.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is an easy-to-use service for deploying and scaling web applications and services developed with Java, .NET, PHP, Node.js, Python, Ruby, Go, and Docker on familiar servers such as Apache, Nginx, Passenger, and IIS. You can simply upload your code and AWS Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment, from capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling to application health monitoring. At the same time, you retain full control over the AWS resources powering your application and can access the underlying resources at any time.

There is no additional charge for AWS Elastic Beanstalk — you pay only for the AWS resources needed to store and run your applications. AWS Elastic Beanstalk is the fastest way to deploy applications on AWS. You use the AWS Management Console or an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to upload your application, and AWS Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring.

Benefits

Whether you’re looking for compute power, database storage, content delivery or other functionality, AWS has the services to help you build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability and reliability. Amazon Web Services offers a broad set of global cloud-based products including compute, storage, databases, analytics, networking, mobile, developer tools, management tools, IoT, security and enterprise applications. These services help organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale. As an AWS customer, you will benefit from a data center and network architecture built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations.

An advantage of the AWS cloud is that it allows customers to scale and innovate, while maintaining a secure environment. Customers pay only for the services they use, meaning that you can have the security you need, but without the upfront expenses, and at a lower cost than in an on-premises environment. Amazon Web Services Cloud Compliance enables customers to understand the robust controls in place at AWS to maintain security and data protection in the cloud. As systems are built on top of AWS cloud infrastructure, compliance responsibilities will be shared. Hybrid cloud architecture is the integration of on-premises resources with cloud resources.

Features

AWS Lambda lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. You pay only for the compute time you consume — there is no charge when your code is not running. With AWS Lambda, you can run code for virtually any type of application or back-end service — all with zero administration. Just upload your code and AWS Lambda takes care of everything required to run and scale your code with high availability. You can set up your code to automatically trigger from other AWS services or call it directly from any web or mobile app.

AWS Lambda automatically runs your code without requiring you to provision or manage servers. Just write the code and upload it to AWS Lambda. AWS Lambda automatically scales your application by running code in response to each trigger. Your code runs in parallel and processes each trigger individually, scaling precisely with the size of the workload. With AWS Lambda, you are charged for every 100ms your code executes and the number of times your code is triggered. You don’t pay anything when your code isn’t running.

Hybrid Cloud On AWS

Hybrid cloud architecture is the integration of on-premises resources with cloud resources. For most organizations with on-premises technology investments, operating in a hybrid architecture is a necessary part of cloud adoption. Migrating legacy IT systems takes time. Therefore, selecting a cloud provider who can help you implement a thoughtful hybrid strategy, without requiring costly new investments in on-premises hardware and software, is important to simplify operations and more easily achieve your business goals.

By working closely with enterprises, AWS has developed the industry’s broadest set of hybrid capabilities across storage, networking, security, application deployment, and management tools to make it easy for you to integrate the cloud as a seamless and secure extension of your existing investments. AWS has also created strategic partnerships with long time leaders in on-premises platform providers such as VMware, Intel, Microsoft, SAP, and others to allow you to run your existing enterprise applications on AWS with full support and high performance.
