Very often businesses and people ask for compelling reasons as to why there should be a need or consideration of AWS services and also what makes it required for the infrastructure needs. Though there are hundreds and thousands of customers who have leveraged AWS in more than 190 countries. Also, the case-studies say many big companies like Netflix, Pinterest, Vodafone, Reddit, Flipboard, Linkedin and many others have been using this latest technique of AWS services and they have integrated this service and with much faster pace are able to manage the infrastructure in-house, or a co-located data center. Also, it is not at all wrong in saying that with the integration of AWS services the data privacy, security of the work, and cost of the project gets saved and is worth the value.
In this blog, we have listed top 10 benefits of using AWS for your infrastructure needs:
1. Zero CapEx:
There is a myth which many people tend to believe and it is that AWS service or any other cloud-based solution are only for rich people. However, this is not the truth. The reality is completely opposite to it. We see that it’s the AWS service that is playing a role of leveler that gives a kick start to the start-ups with the help to leverage high-end technologies and infrastructure that needs with Zero CapEx. The start-up company who is trying to leverage Oracle as their database or any other commercial software that demands high-amount of investment, must explore the AWS marketplace and that also in high-probability.
No matter whether you need or require server hosting for a small website, or content delivery network for heavy traffic sites, or any other server related needs, AWS is the ultimate answer to all its clients and for all such that does not require any no-commitment at all. This would not require even a month too. A server-backed with the services usually are getting charged on an hourly basis, and thus soon can be terminated so that it won’t be billed from next hour.
3. Get Rid of Negotiations:
Negotiation is surely not everyone’s expertise area and neither does anyone like spending out time and energy even if there is a skill available. The highest focus of AWS services is to reduce the infrastructure cost for the customers. Also, it is the process in which the costing and pricing get reduced to a lot of extent and that also more than 30 times in the last few years. Tools like Trusted Advisor, or 3rd-party tools like CloudCheckr, Cloudability, Cloudyn etc. can provide you insights to optimize cost within your existing setup on AWS.
Procuring a new server might take a lot of time and this can be between several hours to days depending on the infrastructure. This is with reference to the location of premises, or the place where the hosting is being provided. Even so, the similar time is required to procure the software licensed as well. However, AWS services enables the clients to spin- up the new servers and that also within some time and that also with no need to buy seperate license for many other operating systems and software.
5. Pay Per Use:
Think of infinite space for your backup & archival needs, ability to launch new servers, up-scale/downscale a server, CDN integration, transcoding media files, unlimited bandwidth and many more highly scalable services/features available to you while you pay based on your actual usage only.
AWS has built world class and one of the most highly secured infrastructure, that is available on both the platforms, one is over the internet and the other is physically.
It is like forgetting about the guess-work or the scientific analysis. This is as per the identification of the need and requirements of the infrastructure. Here it is with regards to the process of leverage of having auto-scaling to build a self-managing infrastructure that is been aligned closely to the actual needs and requirements of traffic/resources utilization.Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) enable you to spin-up clones in multiple regions for different environments within few minutes, eliminating the need to repeat the set-up steps every time.
8. Best-in-class PaaS Offerings:
AWS has come-up with highly scalable managed services for database, caching, data-warehousing, transcoding, storage, backup, infrastructure management & application management which decreases the overall time & effort spent in setting-up & managing the infrastructure and thereby considerably decreasing the go-to-market cycle for end-customers.
APIs are available in various programming languages to help you manage your infrastructure programmatically. Whether it means launching a new instance, or taking backups, everything is possible through API. In fact, APIs are more powerful than AWS Management Console.
