Amazon Web Services is the market leader in cloud services. It provides over 170 AWS services that developers can access from any location. In this article, let’s introduce you to the most commonly used service.
1. Simple Notification Service (SNS)
SNS provides messaging service between applications. This AWS SNS service can be used for messaging between server-free applications, microservices, distributed systems and messages sent by email, SMS and other types. It notifies the user according to a single API query and messages can be filtered. Through Amazon SNS, we can send notifications to all our users on any platform, whether online or mobile on Android or iOS.
Thanks to its code reuse function, Flutter saves developers time. The concept «Write Once, Run Everywhere» is checked since only one code is used to develop an application for several platforms.
Small and medium-sized enterprises can choose this platform to create fast applications with the desired features and excellent designs. Here, the cost of developing an application remains low because Flutter applications take little time to develop.
2. Relational Database Service (RDS)
With this service, you can have dedicated instances entirely managed by the AWS support team that can support multiple database engines. RDS makes the infrastructure less complicated by providing dedicated instances in minutes.
This example enables you to work in a highly capable environment to support any development you do. AWS Lambda is one of the most recommended services by developers as it makes it possible to execute code automatically without having to worry about servers and clusters. The code can be downloaded directly without providing or managing the infrastructure in any organization, so it is very popular to achieve scalability and lower costs.
4. Identity Access Management (IAM)
AWS IAM offers secure access and asset management. The creation of users, the management of access to groups and the rejection of authorizations are possible thanks to the management of identity and AWS access.
5. Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
With AWS VPC, you can create a VPN where your entire IT environment (infrastructure or services) will live in complete isolation from the outside world. Then your information is not exposed. It has also been popular to detect abnormal patterns within the network and prevent data leaks which is crucial to cybersecurity.
RedShift is an easy-to-use data storage service for accessing data, analyzing large volumes of data, and executing complex queries. The main benefit of Amazon RedShift is that this service increases query speed and offers a safer and faster way to analyze data.
Amazon CloudFront is a web service that accelerates the delivery of your static and dynamic web content, such as html, CSS, JS, and image files, to your users. This service is highly recommended among developers. It is mainly used for high-speed data delivery. It reduces latency and improves performance. CloudFront is known for providing content with network mapping which is automated globally. The most interesting part is that CloudFront can transfer data in a matter of milliseconds with its built-in computing capabilities, encryption and data compression.
8. Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
It is one of the fastest growing cloud-based services offered by AWS. The main objective of EC2 is to provide virtual servers to handle any workload size. Organizations must no longer be concerned with physical servers. In addition, EC2 provides support for security, ports, processors and network installations. Amazon EC2 is chosen as it is a very dependable IT infrastructure solution.
9. Simple Storage Service (S3)
S3 is very easy to use and delivers data availability, scalability, performance and safety. The data is stored in buckets that work as folders and can be used as an online backup. You are able to access any amount of data from anywhere at any time.
AWS Elastic Beanstalk is a user-friendly service for deploying and scaling web applications and services developed with Java, .NET, PHP, Node.js, Python, Ruby, Go, and Docker on familiar servers such as Apache, Nginx, Passenger, and IIS. You can simply download your code and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles deployment, capacity provisioning, load balancing, self-scaling to app status monitoring. At the same time, you remain in full control of the AWS resources feeding your application and can access the underlying resources at any time.
