Amazon EC2

Amazon Web Services offers a broad set of global compute, storage, database, analytics, application, and deployment services that help organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale applications.

Amazon EC2 provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers and system administrators.

Amazon Elastic Cloud computing offers flexibility of paying only what you use, and have complete control over your resources, without worrying about data security and availability of resources.

Auto Scaling

Amazon EC2

Auto Scaling allows the Amazon EC2 to scale the capacity up or down according to the users conditions automatically. It is designed to enable the capacity increase and decrease within a short time period. EC2 allows to scale one instance of system to any number of instances i.e. it allows complete control over each instance by acting as a virtual box. All these server instance are controlled by web service APIs hence the applications can scale itself up and down depending on it’s requirement.

EC2 also requires a system admin who can create the instances and monitor them as well and it does allow one to work as per his/her role as a developer to write error free codes seamlessly.

No vender-lock system is enabled for Amazon Ec2 which makes the job of moving the code to another box easy.
