AWS Basic Terminology | Definitions

In this article, we will provide basic AWS (Amazon Web Services) terminology and definitions for beginners.




There are two kinds of models in Cloud Computing:

1. Deployment Models:

Public Cloud:
It is defined as computing services offered by third-party providers over the public internet, making then available to anyone who wants to use or purchase them

Private Cloud:
Where IT services are provisioned over private IT infrastructure for the dedicated use of a single organization

Hybrid Cloud:
It is a mix of on-premises, private cloud and third-party, public cloud services with orchestration between the two parties.

2.Service Models:

Infrastructure as a Serice(IaaS):

It is providing complete access to the server’s OS. Typically IaaS provides hardware, storage, servers, and data center space or network components.

Platform as a Service(PaaS):

One doesn’t get access to the whole OS, rather access is given at a Dashboard level, where a user uploads the data, and the rest is taken care of by the cloud

Software as a Service(SaaS):
The practice of directly providing the software to the customer, without making any server or dashboard

3.AWS Lambda:





Amazon Lambda service  is a determine service that lets you run  source code without providing or managing servers

4.Autoscaling:
