From kernel to code.
With our comprehensive set of on-demand compute, storage, database, and application services, you can easily deploy and maintain apps that always run fast.
Choose your programming language.
AWS is a language and operating system agnostic platform. You choose the development platform or programming model that makes the most sense for your business.
A virtual machine candy store.
Different parts of your app require different compute, memory, and networking configurations. AWS offers 16 instance types with different amounts of compute, memory, and I/O performance, so you can choose the ones that work best for your app. AWS offers both Linux and Windows instances and gives you root access to each one.
Automated scaling makes it easier to administer applications with variable demand. When traffic increases, our Auto Scaling service will launch additional instances to respond to the demand, and our Elastic Load Balancing service will distribute the increased load across your instances. When demand decreases, Auto Scaling can shutdown idle instances, saving you money.
Low. Low. Low.
AWS provides on-demand access to a wide range of Cloud infrastructure services, charging you only for the resources you actually use.

AWS can reduce costs and improve cash flow, whether you are starting out or operating on a large scale.
