This article explains all you need to know about AWS Hosting.
AWS Hosting Pros

AWS Hosting Cons
- Pricing can be tricky due to a range of options available.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is our Editors’ Pick for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). AWS can help most applications and organizations save money with its wide array of tools and third-party integrations; while competitors may offer greater features or better performances in certain areas, AWS remains market leader thanks to mature products with easy setup and management, as well as mature support. Smaller providers won’t be able to match its service.
Not content to remain the market leader, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has gone further by improving almost every aspect of their service – even fundamental service levels that rival Google Cloud Platform.
AWS provides an impressive array of services and partners to enable you to tailor a cloud service specifically to your needs. Utilizing its services, you can design a comprehensive workload complete with management tools and custom apps – or build them yourself using AWS’s cloud services as the backbone.
AWS serves as an excellent illustration of how integral IaaS is becoming to both enterprise and SMB networks. Their Cloud is home to 54 Availability Zones spread out among 18 regions (plus one Local region), and this year alone they expect to add 12 more Availability Zones and four regions globally – each comprising up to six data centers that keep coming online constantly – making AWS one of the only cloud services with long-term presence that won’t leave your side next year or beyond!
AWS Hosting Key Features
Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers all the basic cloud services expected, such as Compute, Storage & Content Delivery, Databases and Networking – plus more! 2016 saw 1,012 new AWS features introduced, while 2017 brought 1,430.

AWS is the undisputed cloud leader. Their MySQL and PostgreSQL compatible AMS Snowball provides ample storage capacity for petabytes or even exabytes in the cloud; while AWS Snowmobile delivers exabyte-scale appliances to clients via tractor trailer in a 45-foot, ruggedized custom shipping container.
AWS provides Redshift as a data warehouse and Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR), a Hadoop and Spark service. When large volumes of data exist, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence services may also be implemented to meet needs.
