Whether you want to do things such as store content in the cloud, build a static website, deploy a web application, run data-and compute-intensive workloads, or build dependable backup solutions, the AWS cloud computing platform provides you the flexibility you need regardless of your use case or industry.
Here is a small list of common cloud-based scenarios, ranging from simple applications to complex implementations, with information on how you can get started:
Store private content in the cloud. You can use Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to store content such as images and files in the cloud and control access to it. For information, go to Amazon Simple Storage Service Getting Started Guide. You can also use Amazon S3 to deploy a static website. For information, go to Hosting Websites on Amazon S3 in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.
Deploy an application. You can deploy a Java, PHP, Python, Ruby or .NET application quickly without having to worry about the AWS infrastructure. For information, go to AWS Elastic Beanstalk Developer Guide. Alternatively, if you know the AWS resources you want to use, you can use AWS CloudFormation to launch your resources in a predictable fashion. View How to Launch a Website in 10 Minutes at Videos & Webinars, to learn how to deploy a WordPress blog using AWS CloudFormation. For more detailed information, go to Get Started in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.
Launch a server in the cloud. Use web service interfaces to launch instances with the operating system and custom application environment you want. To see how this works, you can launch an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance quickly at https://aws.amazon.com/amis. To learn how to launch, connect to, and terminate an EC2 instance, go to the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud Getting Started Guide.
Manage large data sets. Learn how to use AWS cloud services to manage data sets that are too large to be hosted in traditional relational databases and are too inefficient to analyze using non-distributed applications. For information, go to Getting Started Guide: Analyzing Big Data with AWS.
Send marketing and transactional email. You can use Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) to send bulk email without the complexity of a large-scale, on-premises email solution. Amazon SES provides real-time sending statistics and a built-in feedback loop that notifies you of failed delivery attempts. For more information, go to the Amazon Simple Email Service Getting Started Guide.
