Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) forms a central part of Amazon Web Services (AWS), by allowing users to rent virtual computers on which to run their own computer applications.
We create a new server instance on Amazon EC2. The size of the server is variable and based on your requirements. Therefore the price is also variable. To make selections easy, we are presenting 3 pre-configured options here, however there are endless configurations that can be set up.
We are happy to work with you to design an EC2 server that works best for you both in terms of performance and price.
All servers are available in the latest version of your choice of Linux distributions listed below. If you are unsure or don\'t care, we will choose the best one for the application selected.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) forms a central part of Amazon.com's cloud-computing platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS), by allowing users to rent virtual computers on which to run their own computer applications. EC2 encourages scalable deployment of applications by providing a web service through which a user can boot an Amazon Machine Image to configure a virtual machine, which Amazon calls an "instance", containing any software desired. A user can create, launch, and terminate server-instances as needed, paying by the hour for active servers - hence the term "elastic". EC2 provides users with control over the geographical location of instances that allows for latency optimization and high levels of redundancy.
