In his session he covered the AWS in detail.AWS has significantly more services, and more features within those services, than any other cloud provider- from infrastructure technologies like compute, storage, and database- to emerging technologies, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, data and analytics, and internet of things.
He discussed Amazon elastic compute cloud (EC2) is a service that provides virtual services called EC2 instances for compute capacity. Amazon EC2 enables us to scale up and scale down the instances.
Amazon EC2 has two storage options: Elastic block storage (slow and persistent), Instances storage (fast and non- persistent). Pre- configured templates are available known as amazon machine language. Window server 2012, 2016 & 2019.Linux server, Red hat server, Apache server, Ubuntuserver.
