3 Steps to Start Using AWS
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides cloud services as well as on-demand computing resources. Rather than running your own server and worrying about security protocols or maintenance, you can utilize AWS resources, which scale with you as you grow. You don’t need to pay in advance or have long-term contracts. You simply pay for what you use. To start using AWS, we have identified three easy steps for you to get started.
