Amazon Web Services(AWS) is a cloud computing platform that is provided by Amazon which provides several benefits including IAAS, PAAS, and SAAS. Web Services launched its first web services in 2002 from the internal infrastructure that built to handle its online retail operations. In 2006, it began offering its defining IaaS services. AWS was one of the first companies to introduce pay-as-you-go services to its clients.

With AWS one can have remote servers, databases, storage units, Network configurations, Container platforms, etc.


AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a web service that helps you securely control access to AWS resources. With IAM, you can centrally manage permissions that control which AWS resources users can access. You use IAM to control who is authenticated (signed in) and authorized (has permissions) to use resources
