Amazon offers you the ability to purchase, setup and configure cloud storage to replace or extend your existing hardware within the organization. This gives you the ability to scale depending on the needs of the business. For example: your company is launching a sale online for Black Friday or Boxing Day and you would like to increase the load on your web or mobile server to accommodate the increase in website traffic. Within a few minutes, your website is ready for the holiday season. After the holiday, if the load on your servers starts to decrease, you have the flexibility of downgrading your servers and only paying for what you need. Also, your organization saves money and real estate from not having to purchase and keep physical equipment on-site because Amazon EC2 is all virtual hardware. Keep this in mind the next time your organization is looking to upgrade or replace existing server equipment.In the next entry of our blog series, we’ll be discussing the ease in which you can implement and deploy Amazon Web Services within your organization.
