Amazon EC2 – Elastic Cloud Server

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provides scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.

Using Amazon EC2, you can eliminate your need to invest in hardware and develop and deploy applications faster. You can launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need, configure security and networking, and manage storage. It also enables you to scale up or down to handle changes in requirements or spikes in popularity, reducing your need to forecast traffic.

Amazon EC2 Features

Amazon EC2 enables you to increase or decrease capacity within minutes, not hours or days. You can commission one, hundreds, or even thousands of server instances simultaneously. Because this is all controlled with web service APIs, your application can automatically scale itself up and down depending on its needs.

You have complete control of your instances including root access and the ability to interact with them as you would any machine. You can stop any instance while retaining the data on the boot partition, and then subsequently restart the same instance using web service APIs. Instances can be rebooted remotely using web service APIs, and you also have access to their console output.

You have the choice of multiple instance types, operating systems, and software packages. Amazon EC2 allows you to select a configuration of memory, CPU, instance storage, and the boot partition size that is optimal for your choice of operating system and application. For example, choice of operating systems includes numerous Linux distributions and Microsoft Windows Server.

Amazon EC2 is integrated with most AWS services such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), providing a complete, secure solution for computing, query processing, and cloud storage across a wide range of applications.
Amazon EC2 offers a highly reliable environment where replacement instances can be rapidly and predictably commissioned. The service runs within Amazon’s proven network infrastructure and data centres. The Amazon EC2 Service Level Agreement commitment is 99.95% availability for each Amazon EC2 Region.

Cloud security at AWS is the highest priority. As an AWS customer, you will benefit from a data centre and network architecture built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organisations. Amazon EC2 works in conjunction with Amazon VPC to provide security and robust networking functionality for your computer resources.

You pay a very low rate for the compute capacity you consume. Please contact our Sales team for pricing options.
