Hands-on Introduction to Cloud Computing Amazon Web Services (Dec 2013)

What is Cloud Computing?

The phrase cloud computing means "a type of Internet-based computing," where different services – such as servers, storage and applications – are delivered to an organization's computers and devices through the Internet. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with your business. With the Cloud, businesses no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes and deliver results faster.

What is Amazon Web Services?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a collection of computing services that together make up a Cloud Computing platform, offered over the Internet by Amazon.com. AWS has been offering IT infrastructure services since 2006 and is the global leader in providing Cloud Computing infrastructure. AWS provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world.
