If you don't already have an AWS account, you’ll need to get one. Your AWS account gives you access to all services, but you will be charged only for the resources that you use. For this example walkthrough, the charges will be minimal.
To sign up for AWS
Go to http://aws.amazon.com and click Sign Up.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
AWS notifies you by email when your account is active and available for you to use.
You use your AWS account credentials to deploy and manage resources within AWS. If you give other people access to your resources, you will probably want to control who has access and what they can do. AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a web service that controls access to your resources by other people. In IAM, you create users, which other people can use to obtain access and permissions that you define. For more information about IAM, go to What Can I Do with IAM?
