Implementation of Cloud Computing
Hello and welcome back to Part 3 of Cloud Computing e-learning course by Simplilearn. I hope you had a chance to go through the 2nd part, which was “Patterns” of Cloud Computing. If not, I would advise you to go through the same, as you would require the knowledge of patterns to understand Amazon Web Services, which is discussed in this part.
This part is titled as “Implement”. We will go through Amazon Web Services, one of the most popular Infrastructures as a Service provider. We will look at some of the popular AWS offerings and go through some interesting demos.
Let us proceed to the next slide and discuss what will be covered in the “Implement” part of the Day 2 session.
The “Implement” part of the Day 2 session covers the second volume of Cloud in Practice. We will first start with AWS 101, which is a brief introduction into services of AWS. We will go deep into some of the popular services under AWS, and browse through Demos around them. Finally, we end with some understanding of use cases where AWS can help.
Let us start with the AWS 101. In the next slide we will understand about Amazon Web Services.
What is AWS?
Firstly, AWS is a set of infrastructure web services. Amazon has built a service layer over virtualized infrastructure that allows a consumer to provision resources over web. These infrastructure services are exposed as REST API or Web Services. The services span across server, storage, database, object store and many other infrastructure components.
Secondly, AWS allows on demand infrastructure provisioning. This means that a consumer can request for new resources at any point of time, based on the requirement. On demand capability allows consumers to be flexible with the infrastructure, and design systems that are adaptable to scale.
AWS also allows Pay as you Go pricing model. This is third arsenal in AWS sleeve. Due to the scale at which AWS operates, it can provide the cheapest per hour pricing amongst all IAAS providers. This model allows a low entry barrier for any type of consumer big or small. AWS has provided a fine granulation of its services that has varied pricing attached to it. This means for each service, there are multiple denominations, for example – small, medium, large etc., and has incremental pricing attached to each.
