For those of you who don't know about AWS

  •       AWS is a collection of infrastructure services
  •       Amazon is providing this as infrastructure as a service
  •       Like storage as a service or computing capacity or simply virtual machines are a service
  •       Pricing is flexible , pay only for the things you use
  •       Amazon S3 is a storage service ,where you can store your data
  •       Amazon EC2 is about web computing , you will be able to deploy virtual machines in Amazon data centers using EC2 technology with full root access…isn't that amazing!!
