In this AWS article we want to talk about Introduction to Amazon (AWS) EC2, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is a web service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that provides scalable compute capacity in the cloud. with EC2 users can launch virtual machines (EC2 instances) and run on diff computing tasks on them such as running web applications hosting databases and performing data processing tasks.
EC2 provides users with complete control over their computing resources and enables them to scale their capacity up or down as needed. this allows users to easily respond to changes in demand for their applications, without having to worry about provisioning and managing physical servers.
EC2 instances can be launched in different configurations such as different operating systems, computing power, storage capacity and network performance. users can choose the configuration that best meets their needs and only pay for the resources they use.
