What is The Basic Architecture of an AWS Environment?
As organizations move their production environments into the cloud, they are often wondering what a general AWS environment is composed of. The reason for this is that organizations gain access to hundreds of various cloud-native services and features as they adopt a public cloud presence, and making sense of the various services as a new cloud practitioner can get overwhelming.
At a high-level, the foundational service in an AWS environment is the EC2 instance. The EC2 instance acts as the cloud-native workload or endpoint that organizations can use as their production servers or DevOps environments. Block-level EC2 storage, much like internal spinning disk for on-premises workloads, is known as an EBS volume. EBS volumes are great for storing data; however, AWS users have access to more cost-effective storage known as S3 storage for offloading data. S3 storage is known as object storage and can provide storage services at a fraction of the cost of EBS storage. For organizations looking to capitalize on extremely inexpensive storage, there’s AWS Glacier and Deep Archive. These storage tiers are extremely cost-competitive; however, they require 6 to 12 hours.
