1

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)



Compute

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) | Compute


Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.

2

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling



Compute

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling | Compute


Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling is a fully managed service designed to launch or terminate Amazon EC2 instances automatically to help ensure you have the correct number of Amazon EC2 instances available to handle the load for your application. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling helps you maintain application availability through fleet management for EC2 instances, which detects and replaces unhealthy instances, and by scaling your Amazon EC2 capacity up or down automatically according to conditions you define. You can use Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling to automatically increase the number of Amazon EC2 instances during demand spikes to maintain performance and decrease capacity during lulls to reduce costs.

Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS)



Compute

Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) | Compute


Amazon EKS is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes clusters.

4

Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR)



Compute

Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) | Compute


Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) is a fully-managed Docker container registry that makes it easy for developers to store, manage, and deploy Docker container images. Amazon ECR is integrated with Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), simplifying your development to production workflow. Amazon ECR eliminates the need to operate your own container repositories or worry about scaling the underlying infrastructure. Amazon ECR hosts your images in a highly available and scalable architecture, allowing you to reliably deploy containers for your applications. Integration with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) provides resource-level control of each repository.

5

Amazon Elastic Container Service



Compute

Amazon Elastic Container Service | Compute


Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) is a highly scalable, high performance container management service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run applications on a managed cluster of Amazon EC2 instances. Amazon ECS eliminates the need for you to install, operate, and scale your own cluster management infrastructure. With simple API calls, you can launch and stop container-enabled applications, query the complete state of your cluster, and access many familiar features like security groups, Elastic Load Balancing, EBS volumes and IAM roles. You can use Amazon ECS to schedule the placement of containers across your cluster based on your resource needs and availability requirements. You can also integrate your own scheduler or third-party schedulers to meet business or application specific requirements.

6

Amazon Lightsail



Compute

Amazon Lightsail | Compute


Amazon Lightsail is the easiest way to get started with AWS for developers, small businesses, students, and other users who need a simple virtual private server (VPS) solution. Lightsail provides developers compute, storage, and networking capacity and capabilities to deploy and manage websites and web applications in the cloud. Lightsail includes everything you need to launch your project quickly – a virtual machine, SSD-based storage, data transfer, DNS management, and a static IP – for a low, predictable monthly price.

7

AWS Batch



Compute

AWS Batch | Compute


AWS Batch is a set of batch management capabilities that enables developers, scientists, and engineers to easily and efficiently run hundreds of thousands of batch computing jobs on AWS. AWS Batch dynamically provisions the optimal quantity and type of compute resources (e.g., CPU or memory optimized instances) based on the volume and specific resource requirements of the batch jobs submitted. With AWS Batch, there is no need to install and manage batch computing software or server clusters, allowing you to instead focus on analyzing results and solving problems. AWS Batch plans, schedules, and executes your batch computing workloads using Amazon EC2 and Spot Instances.

8

AWS Elastic Beanstalk



Compute

AWS Elastic Beanstalk | Compute


AWS Elastic Beanstalk makes it even easier for developers to quickly deploy and manage applications in the AWS Cloud. Developers simply upload their application, and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring.

9

AWS Fargate



Compute

AWS Fargate | Compute


AWS Fargate is a technology for deploying and managing containers, which frees you from having to manage any of the underlying infrastructure. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers.

10

AWS Lambda



Compute

AWS Lambda | Compute


AWS Lambda lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. You pay only for the compute time you consume - there is no charge when your code is not running. With Lambda, you can run code for virtually any type of application or backend service - all with zero administration. Just upload your code and Lambda takes care of everything required to run and scale your code with high availability. You can set up your code to automatically trigger from other AWS services or call it directly from any web or mobile app.

11

AWS Serverless Application Repository



Compute

AWS Serverless Application Repository | Compute


The AWS Serverless Application Repository is a collection of serverless applications and serverless application components provided by AWS and other AWS partners and developers. With a growing selection of applications to choose from, the Serverless Application Repository makes it easy to get started with the AWS Serverless platform.

12

Elastic Load Balancing

VMware Cloud on AWS



Compute

VMware Cloud on AWS | Compute


VMware Cloud on AWS provides the ability to run VMware Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) software on the AWS Cloud, including VMware vSphere, vSAN, NSX, and vCenter. This offering delivers an infrastructure that is consistent and interoperable with your on-premises infrastructure, providing you the best environment to run hybrid vSphere workloads. Because the service runs on dedicated, elastic, bare-metal AWS infrastructure, you can benefit from the scale, flexibility, and security of the AWS Cloud. In addition, the service provides secure, seamless, and high bandwidth connectivity to the broad range of AWS services to enhance and expand the value of applications you deploy to the VMware Cloud on AWS service.
