  • Amazon Web Services is a set of primitive building blocks to enable developers to build applications and, ultimately, businesses, on our battle-tested infrastructure. So what kinds of building blocks do developers need? First, you need compute resources. The Elastic Compute Cloud, or EC2, allows developers to rent virtual computers, running in our data centers, and pay for them by the hour. Provision as many as you need – 1, 10, 1000, for as long as you need them, and you pay only for what you use (starting at 10 cents/hour). Next, you probably need somewhere to durably store and retrieve data. The Simple Storage Service, is, well, a simple storage service that allows to store and retrieve objects in the cloud using simple put and get API calls.You might need to index and query for that data, or create other structured data that you want to query, which is what we built SimpleDB.

    8. EC2 – Regions and Availability ZonesRegion – One of 7 distinct physical locations:• Northern Virginia, San Francisco, Oregon, Tokyo, Singapore, Brazil, IrelandAvailability Zone• Physical infrastructure (1 or more data centers)• 2 or more AZ’s per Region• Fault tolerance across AZ’s
    9. EC2 Instance• Amazon EC2: A Virtual Server in the Cloud • Provision and boot new servers in minutes • Boot from AMI (Amazon Machine Image) • Your choice of Linux or Windows • Quickly scale capacity up or down • Deploy across Regions and Availability Zones for reliability • Choose from 14 different instance types: • CPU power • RAM • Local disk • Network speed
    10. EC2 Security Group• Virtual firewall• Control access to instance• Default configuration: no access
    11. EC2 Elastic IP Address• Fixed IP address• Map to any EC2 instance in a Region• Retain address after switching instances
    12. EC2 Elastic Load BalancerDistribute traffic to an array of EC2 instances• Scale up or scale down• Health checks• Traffic goes to healthy instances• Configurable list of ports
    13. Amazon CloudWatch• Tracks and stores AWS and user-defined metrics• 2 week retention period• Detect issues• Raise alerts
    14. EC2 Auto Scaling• Control number of running EC2 instances• Scale up or down as needed• Drive decisions based on CloudWatch metrics • CPU load • Network traffic• No direct console UI at present: • Command line • API • Elastic Beanstalk• Auto-scaling group • Instance collection • Actions (rules)
    15. EC2 Elastic Block Storage (EBS)• Virtual disk volumes• 1 GB – 1 TB per volume• Create and attach to EC2 instance• Format and write data• Snapshot and restore• Provison desired IOPS (up to 1000 per volume)
    16. What’s Next? So…those are all of the parts! Can we put them all together?
