The Benefits of Using Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services has long been recognized as a market leader in cloud computing, as well as for its well-developed infrastructure and exceptional service delivery. It benefits the customer by offering low-cost services and is also simple to use, so the customer does not have to worry about servers, security, or databases.

The following are beneficial features of AWS:

Mobile-Friendly Access 

Amazon Web Services provides two mobile-friendly access services, which are AWS Mobile Hub and AWS Mobile SDK.

The AWS Mobile hub assists and directs you to the elements of your app that are appropriate and compatible. This feature offers a terminal for interacting with AWS services.

Meanwhile, AWS Mobile SDK provides direct access to Amazon Web Services such as DynamoDB, S3, and Lambda. It also works with iOS, Android, Web, React Native, Unity, and many other platforms.

Serverless Cloud Functions 

Amazon Web Services assists you by executing and scaling your code. All you have to do is use your mobile phone to upload the code. This functionality has become critical for doing many activities at once, requiring back-end code to run and respond to the main code.

Managing this infrastructure to host back-end software requires scale, provision, and a large number of servers. Fortunately, Amazon Web Services handles server management, performance, scaling, patching, and infrastructure administration.

Improved Databases

Amazon Web Services delivers databases that are required and controlled entirely by them. Among the databases are:

⦁ Relational database for transaction
⦁ Non-relational database for Internet-scale applications
⦁ Data warehouse for analytics
⦁ In-memory data store for caching and real-time workloads
⦁ Graphic database for highly connected data applications.


Storage is one of the most common functionalities of Amazon Web Services. It’s inexpensive, adaptable, and simple to use. Apart from that, the storage may be utilized alone or in conjunction with other applications to fulfill your needs. AWS offers a variety of storage options, including:

⦁ Amazon Glacier
⦁ Amazon Simple Storage Service
⦁ Amazon EBS

Security and Compliance 

Because many businesses rely on AWS, Amazon ensures that the data they supply is as secure as possible. This function enables the client to grow and develop. They just pay for the services they utilize, with no out-of-pocket costs.

Aside from that, Amazon Web Services security groups are linked to EC2 instances. Their job is to provide security at the protocol and port access levels.

There are security rules in Amazon Web Services that filter traffic flowing into and out of an EC2 instance, which are:

⦁ Type
⦁ Protocol
⦁ Port Range
⦁ Source

AWS Marketplace

The Amazon Web Services Marketplace is a digital catalog that contains thousands of software listings from independent software vendors. Amazon launched this feature in 2012 to accelerate the growth of Amazon Web Services from third-party providers.

A customer can immediately search for suitable software in this online store and buy it for their business. They can also use the Marketplace’s one-click deployment and launch the required software by paying only for their use.
