A few weeks ago, I decided to investigate Microsoft Azure… I also wanted to investigate AWS (Amazon Web Services).
It again! Only took me maybe a few minutes to setup a server… well I mean “Instance”…
Selecting a Machine Image:
Selecting Hardware Details:
…well I only used free tier Hardware…
I didn’t specify any further Details, like VPC, Subnet, IP, Domain and so on:
I already had a Security Group and so on in place…
And that’s it!
Ready to launch:
I only had to download the RDP File:
And then I could connect and login to my Instance:
Nice… almost the same experience like with azure… AWS has a few more options in terms of security available, well at least this was my feeling on my first time… I somehow also prefer these “products around AWS:
Like RDS, that is their Database Service, or IAM, that is the Integrated Security and Identity Management Service… or VPC as a possibility to separate your Infrastructure…
Maybe I try to investigate a few of them later…
