Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)

Amazon EC2 is a web service that makes web-scale cloud-computing easy for users by providing secure, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is a cloud infrastructure that offers raw computing resources on demand. Amazon EC2 saves organizations from investing in hardware up front and further facilitates fast development and deployment of applications. It enables the provision of a virtual server with an ability of incorporating enormous computing power.

The Amazon EC2 web interface allows a user to increase or decrease cloud instance capacity within minutes, as per the requirement. The fact that computing instances are software based implies scalability of every unique instance, and further gives a user the means to create an entire virtual data center over the cloud. Amazon EC2 is flexible enough in providing an option to host applications on multiple platforms, and it is secure at the same time owing to its tightly coupled multi-tenant architecture.

To start using EC2, an Amazon Machine Image containing an operating system, configuration settings and application programs is created by the developer. Furthermore, AMI is uploaded to the Amazon Simple Storage Service in order to get registered with Amazon EC2. Since its subscription is based on utility, a user is charged only for the resources used. Amazon EC2 offers various types, sizes, and pricing structures of instances, based on different computing and budgetary requirements: on-demand, reserved, and spot. Each instance type also has a corresponding size option.
