It is rightly said that AWS (Amazon Web Services) has radically changed the economics of running a web technology based company. With AWS, Amazon has an awesome product for hosting your online social community.


You can rent a server on AWS and run it just as you would a physical server. With pay-as-you-go pricing, you pay for your virtual server only while it runs. You start paying for servers by the hour. You only pay for the boxes when they run, and you only pay for storage that’s actually in use, so your startup costs are minimal, and it encourages experimentation at the hardware level, to see what configuration works best for your website.


The biggest difference and advantage of using AWS is flexibility. Backed by the AWS network, your virtual server can do things no physical server can, such as automatically scaling into multiple servers when demand for your application increases. A new box can be spun up very, very quickly. This allows for scaling up in response to load events, rather than in advance of them: when your monitoring detects high load, you can spin up additional capacity, and it can be ready in time to handle the current load event. You can again scale down when the load decreases, and you would pay only for what you use.


There are many more advantages of using AWS for hosting your social network like Elastic load balancing, Amazon Cloudfront (CDN), Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), Amazon ElastiCache, Security, etc.


Note: We are providing this service for both the cases of a Fresh Setup or for Migrating your SocialEngine community from your current hosting to Amazon AWS Cloud hosting.
