Amazon Web Services

January 24, 2012

Today I set up my AWS (Amazon Web Services) account. AWS is Amazon.com’s cloud. It is a pay as you go service, meaning they charge you for GB of storage and memory and bandwidth used. In order to get an account you have to put in your credit card info, but they don’t start charging you until you cross a certain threshold or want additional services. What you get without paying is plenty enough to start experimenting. Which I intend to. Amazon has done a great job of selling through teaching. I also some time to watch a few videos on the AWS YouTube channel.

You can check out AWS at aws.amazon.com
