Elastic Compute Cloud or EC2 is a web service that provides secure, scalable compute capacity in the cloud. Amazon EC2 presents a true virtual computing environment, allowing you to use web service interfaces to launch instances with a variety of operating systems, and you only pay for the compute power that you’re utilizing.
What is EC2
EC2 is one of the most well-known and most used service offerings from Amazon, it provides IT infrastructure that runs entirely on the cloud but you can get functionality like a data center you run right from your premises. The EC2 service from Amazon is ideal for companies that need performance, flexibility, and power progressively.
At its core, EC2 is a service that allows you to rent a virtual server remotely for running your companies applications or run your customer’s applications. An instance is a single virtual computing environment made up of CPU, memory, cloud storage, and networking capacity. With EC2 you can run multiple EC2 for your computing needs.
Benefits of using EC2
One of the best benefits of EC2 is that it is extremely flexible, what that means is, the moment you need more computing power, it is available within seconds, gone are the olden days when your business would have needed to purchase new hardware and get a certified team to configure the new hardware.
Another major benefit of using EC2 over the traditional IT infrastructure is that once the need for high computing power is over, you can remove instances with a touch of a button. Unlike traditional IT infrastructure where all the purchased equipment would have gone to waste.
Apart from the scaling and flexibility, the cost structure, and the instance types available are the biggest feature of EC2, you only pay for what you use and no extra charge is applicable. The EC2 instances are more reliable than running a data center, with next to no downtimes, and no maintenance is required over time, regardless of how many instances are running.
The selection of operating systems that you can run as an EC2 instance is very vast, users can select Windows Operating systems such as, Windows 10, Server 2018, or users can run Amazons Linux AMI, Red Hat Linux, or Ubuntu. EC2 is the best service to run applications regardless of what OS it is supported on.
Auto Scaling is also available with EC2, the capacity will automatically scale up or down automatically, as per the condition users have defined. Best performance is provided by the EC2 as Auto Scaling coordinated the number of instances that are in use, and control the resources that are required to run those instances. This provides adequate performance at no extra cost.
