Basic Services in AWS3:00 with David Baumgold
AWS is a large collection of services, and each service has its own name and acronym. This video will explore some of the basic services that AWS offers, and give you some useful information about where to learn more about each one.
- S3 — Simple Storage Service. Used to store and retrieve information. Pricing is based on how much data you store, and how long it is stored for.
- EC2 — Elastic Compute Cloud. Used to rent virtual computers that can run programs and process information. Pricing is based on the space of the computer(s), and the time that they are running.
- EC2 instance — A single virtual computer in EC2. Does not come with storage capacity, but can be used with other storage services like S3.
- Free Tier — A promotion that Amazon runs to incentivize people to try AWS. For the first 12 months that you have an AWS account, Amazon will let you try several services in AWS for free, including S3 and EC2.
