What Is Amazon Web Services?
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an industry leader in IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) for cloud-based web solutions, joined with existing and outside resources to create a scalable application without delays related to infrastructure provisioning (compute, storage, and network) and oversight.
With AWS, users can opt for the specific solutions they need, and only pay for what they use. This provides lower capital expenditure and rapid time to value without forfeiting effectiveness or user experience.
Amazon provides a plethora of services for creating or broadening your cloud environment.
The AWS Partner Network (APN) is the global partner program for AWS. It is focused on helping APN Partners build successful AWS-based businesses or solutions by providing business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market support.

Simple Website Hosting
Simple websites typically consist of a single web server which runs either a Content Management System (CMS), such as WordPress, an eCommerce application, such as Magento, or a development stack, like LAMP. The software makes it easy to build, update, manage, and serve the content of your website.
Simple websites are best for low to medium trafficked sites with multiple authors and more frequent content changes, such as marketing websites, content websites or blogs. They provide a simple starting point for website which might grow in the future. While typically low cost, these sites require IT administration of the web server and are not built to be highly available or scalable beyond a few servers.
- Websites built on common applications like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento
- Websites built on popular development stacks like LAMP, LEMP, MEAN, Node.Js
- Websites that are unlikely to scale beyond 5 servers
- Customers who want to manage their own web server and resources
- Customers who want one console to manage their web server, DNS, and networking
Static Website Hosting
Static websites are very low cost, provide high-levels of reliability, require no server administration, and scale to handle enterprise-level traffic with no additional work.
- Websites that do not contain server-side scripting, like PHP or ASP.NET
- Websites that change infrequently with few authors
- Websites need to scale for occasionally intervals of high traffic
- Customers who do not want to manage infrastructure
Enterprise Web Hosting
Enterprise websites include very popular marketing and media sites, as well as social, travel, and other application-heavy websites. For example, Lamborghini, Coursera, and Nordstrom use AWS to host their websites. Enterprise websites need to dynamically scale resources and be highly available to support the most demanding and highly trafficked websites.
Enterprise websites use multiple AWS services and often span multiple data centers (called Availability Zones). Enterprise websites built on AWS provide high levels of availability, scalability, and performance, but require higher amounts of management and administration than static or simple websites.
- Websites that use multiple web servers across at least two data centers
- Websites that need to scale using load balancing, autoscaling, or external databases
- Websites that require sustained high CPU utilization
- Customers who need maximum control and flexibility for their web server configuration and administration
