What is AWS??

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud services platform, offering computing power, database storage, content delivery, and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow. Running web and application servers in the cloud to host dynamic websites. With AWS, we receive a virtual environment that lets us load the software and services that our application requires.


1) Easy to use:

AWS is designed to allow application providers, ISVs, and vendors to quickly and securely host our applications — whether an existing application or a new SaaS-based application. We can use the AWS Management Console or well-documented web services APIs to access AWS’s application hosting platform.


AWS enables us to select the operating system, programming language, web application platform, database, and other services that we need. With AWS, we receive a virtual environment that lets us to load the software and services our application requires.


We pay only for the compute power, storage, and other resources that we use, with no long-term contracts or up-front commitments.

4)Scalable and high-performance:

Using AWS tools, Auto Scaling, and Elastic Load Balancing, our application can scale up or down based on demand. Backed by Amazon’s massive infrastructure, we have access to compute and storage resources whenever we need them.


AWS utilizes an end-to-end approach to secure and harden our infrastructure, including physical, operational, and software measures.

Repp Health

We all hate waiting in hospitals for a turn to come up. As a patient, we do not have patience and want to get done with our diagnosis at the earliest. And that is understandable behavior. However, the number of people visiting a hospital and the staff having to set up all the equipment, are some reasons that cause these situations.


It is certain that most of us know what McDonald’s is? McDonald’s is a highly popular Burger and Fast chain across the globe. They have more than 37000 outlets across the globe and serve more than 60 million people every day. This gives you some idea as to the volume of customers they handle. It is no different for home delivery they provide.


Here is a case study where an application was moved from one service AWS to the other service on AWS. WeWork has built a tool for Project management called FieldLens. Initially, this was set up on Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute. This was a monolith project that functioned well for 2 and a half years. However, it needed expansion and improvement. This came in the form of Docker and AWS Elastic Container Service. On moving this project to containers the performance improved immensely.
