Amazon Web Services Extends Amazon Virtual Private Cloud

March 18, 2011 by · Comments Off on Amazon Web Services Extends Amazon Virtual Private Cloud 

Hosting ToolboxSEATTLE – Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), today announced expanded functionality of Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). Starting today, AWS has broadened an enterprise’s networking options with Amazon VPC by letting them specify which of their Amazon VPC resources they wish to make directly accessible to the Internet and which they do not. Before today, customers of Amazon EC2 could provision a private, isolated section of the AWS cloud (called an Amazon VPC) and launch AWS resources into that VPC that were only accessible via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection to an existing enterprise datacenter. Amazon VPC was not directly accessible to the Internet. With today’s announcement enterprises no longer need a VPN or existing infrastructure resources in order to leverage Amazon VPC.

Enterprises can now define a virtual network topology in Amazon VPC that closely resembles a traditional network that they might operate in their own datacenter. Customers have complete control over the virtual networking environment, including selection of IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways. Users can easily customize the network configuration for Amazon VPC, for example creating a public-facing subnet for web servers that have access to the Internet, and placing backend systems such as databases or application servers in a private-facing subnet with no Internet access. Enterprises can continue to choose to connect Amazon VPC to their own existing IT infrastructure with an encrypted VPN connection, extending enterprises’ existing security and management policies to Amazon VPC instances as if they were running within an existing datacenter.

Amazon Web Services Launches Japan Datacenters for Its Cloud Computing Platform

March 3, 2011 by · Comments Off on Amazon Web Services Launches Japan Datacenters for Its Cloud Computing Platform 

Hosting BlogSEATTLE – Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS), an Amazon.com company, today announced the launch of its new Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region, the fifth Region in which the company has deployed its global cloud computing platform. Japan-based businesses and global companies with customers in Japan can now leverage the AWS suite of infrastructure web services to build their businesses and run their applications in the cloud. Starting today, AWS is also offering support in Japanese for any customer with a Japanese language preference. The newly launched Tokyo Region is the second Region in Asia Pacific for AWS, and is now available for any business or software developer to sign up and get started today at http://aws.amazon.com and http://aws.amazon.com/jp.

Before AWS launched in early 2006, businesses would take on the massive capital investment of building their own infrastructure or contract with a vendor for a fixed amount of datacenter capacity that they might or might not use. This choice meant either paying for wasted capacity or having to worry that the amount of capacity they forecasted was insufficient to keep pace with their growth. Many businesses spent time and money managing their own datacenter or a co-location facility, which meant time not spent on growing their actual business or differentiating their offering for customers. Over the past five years, AWS has changed the way that businesses think about technology infrastructure–incur no up-front expenses or long-term commitments, turn capital expense into variable operating expense, scale seamlessly by adding or shedding resources as quickly as you wish, free up scarce engineering resources from the undifferentiated heavy lifting of running your own infrastructure–all without sacrificing operational performance, reliability, or security.
