When starting up a new online service, companies can find many advantages when utilizing some of AWS Account For Sale. As an experienced developer, I have used several of these services and can recommend them to other people starting online services or dynamic websites.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) began in 2002, leveraging the infrastructure already in place by one of the internet’s largest e-tailers. AWS provides a range of web services which can form what is now becoming popularly known as a “cloud”.
Currently on offer by AWS are approximately 20 web services to be used in the cloud. The most popular to date are the Elastic Cloud Compute and Simple Storage Service, respectively known as EC2 an S3.
Perhaps the service which existing website owners can take advantage of the quickest, is Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3). S3 is an online file storage system with built-in high redundancy and infinite scalability. Amazon uses clusters of servers across the globe to guarantee up to 99.999999999% retention and 99.99% up-time to any data you upload to S3.
Any existing files (up to 5GB in size per file) from a website can be easily migrated to S3, allowing it to be used as a Content Delivery Network (CDN). Amazon’s AWS infrastructure resides on super fast internet backbones, which means content will generally be served much faster than if it were served from cheap shared hosting accounts. For the relatively cheap price per GB of storage and data transfer, many website owners currently using web hosting with limited storage and bandwidth may see instant cost reductions by migrating to S3 for content delivery.
For large websites and online services which serve massive amounts of data, the cost performance of Amazon’s S3 can be very high and in some cases a necessary tool when other services cannot store such large amounts of data.
For a company considering starting up an online file sharing or content-heavy service such as a photo or video sharing site, Amazon S3 offers many benefits and a performance which would otherwise require a large initial cost outlay.
