After working with numerous businesses and our own personal experience, we can say that there isn't a one-size-fits-all solution for IT. We often hear from businesses that settle for less than they need simply because the next package up is way more than necessary.
With Amazon Web Services EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), businesses are able to customize the service to their specific needs. This allows companies to save money while still doing more, which is a win-win in our opinion.
Scale As Needed
Scalability is always important when trying to grow and maintain a business. Yet, many solutions make this either difficult or impossible. Amazon Web Services EC2 focuses on scalability. The service allows businesses to change computing capacity needs in the cloud within minutes. We know how frustrating it can be to make changes, but have to wait a week or more for them to take effect.
Now, businesses can get the cloud computing power they need within minutes. It's important to note that this scales both ways. Need to suddenly cut back? Not a problem. Want to cover a few day spike? It's easy.
Custom Security Groups
We like the fact that businesses can customize their computing needs quickly, but that's not the only customizations businesses can make with Amazon Web Services EC2. Security should always be a top priority and businesses should be able to customize the security of their chosen solutions.
IT admins have full control over firewall rules that determine who and which devices are allowed to access any virtual instances in the cloud computing environment. Create separate rules for every instance for even more control.
In addition to security, companies can customize most configuration options for every individual virtual instance. This includes storage, CPU, networking capacity and more. Since each instance is created for a different purpose, businesses shouldn't have to pay for computing power they don't need. Customize each for maximum efficiency, while still saving money.
Create Instances As Needed
Every business has different needs. Those needs can change from day to day. If a business needs more virtual instances, Amazon Web Services EC2 makes it easy to create as many or as few as necessary. From temporarily testing an application to trying out new upgrades, each project can have its own isolated instance. Or, easily add new instances to the business's network.
