To start with if you do not have any knowledge about cloud computing, let me brief you a little. Cloud computing is providing computing resources over the internet. Simplifying it more for you; you can have storage, power, IT solutions and much more without getting complex physical servers.

Now, moving on to AWS; it is a platform that helps you use cloud computing effectively for your projects. It is a service provider that helps you deploy any application in the cloud. The “S” in AWS is significantly important and we will now talk about the services in detail. These services are compute, storage, databases, migration, networking and content delivery, developer tools, management tools, security, identity and compliance, application services, mobile services, desktop, and app streaming, business productivity, artificial intelligence, augmented reality(AR) and virtual reality(VR), customer engagement, game development and internet of things(IoT). Yes, that is a lot of support for your venture or project.

AWS helps you to store your files in the cloud so that they can be accessible from anywhere. It maintains the security and privacy of your files as well. It helps you to host dynamic websites by allowing you to run servers on the cloud.

A lot of companies use AWS because of its flexibility and reliability for example - Instagram, Pinterest, Netflix, Dropbox, etc.

Pros and Cons

AWS is cost-effective, ie you only pay for what you use and there are no hidden charges or agreements. Altogether it provides a great platform that is easy to use. Moreover, there is some hindrance that occurs while using the cloud-like you cannot have complete control over operations and you have to have backup protection. Because it is the cloud and available everywhere, one can deploy its application in multiple places with just a few clicks but the fact that not everything is available everywhere also has to be kept in mind. For example, some images may be restricted for use in a particular region.
