Wherever you run a business, be it retail, real estate, finance, social media, you need applications that run well in supporting the business. Applications must be reliable, secure and cost-efficient. Now, you can consider choosing AWS since your business needs more than what you use in the past. Don’t forget to first consider the benefits of AWS before you make any move and leave the existing system.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud service provider, AWS offers computing power, database storage space, “content delivery network” and other functionalities that help many businesses to grow and run applications properly. AWS provides many product choices that make it very easy to build a business. Infrastructure as a service is the right term for AWS.

On traditional servers, we must know in detail what server specifications we want, such as support, spare parts, then placement in the data center, and the process is not an easy process. If we prepare too many servers, while there are not much computing needs, we will waste a lot of money. Whereas if we prepare a little server while computing needs are very much, this will disrupt the business.

In addition to offering convenience, one of the advantages of AWS is the “pay as you go” feature, which is paid when used. Like AWS EC2, the pricing model used is hourly for the type of on-demand deployment. AWS provides a simple monthly calculator that we can use to predict what costs will be incurred. Aside from that, at a fairly low cost, we have powerful services, for example, kinesis streams, without the need to manage streaming applications such as Apache Kafka, we can solve the same problem with a shorter time. The effect is that we can deliver features faster, we can focus on users, we can focus on business, and we don’t need to think about “scaling”.
