5 Reasons to Choose AWS for Magento

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is currently the world’s most popular cloud-based platform, providing more than 200 comprehensive services for users around the globe. Millions of organizations, ranging from government agencies to small startups to international enterprises, rely on AWS to keep their websites reliable, modern, and secure. For over 15 years, AWS has been at the forefront of innovation in order to give retailers and their consumers the best possible online experiences.

When the technology of AWS and the unlimited customizability of Magento are combined, users can experience the key benefits that each powerful system brings to the table. The top 5 benefits of switching to Magento on AWS are listed below.

1. Global Reach

AWS currently has the most extensive cloud infrastructure, with 80 different Availability Zones in 25 regions around the globe. Furthermore, AWS plans to establish an additional 15 Availability Zones and 5 new AWS regions in the near future. No other cloud provider or hosting solution can offer such high availability in so many regions. 

Additionally, the global reach of AWS goes beyond just the Availability Zones and established regions. There are millions of AWS users who are happy to offer helpful insights and advice, along with thousands of independent software vendors and systems integrators within the AWS Partner Network (APN). If you ever have a question about anything AWS, you’ll be sure to find the support you need quickly!

2. Security

AWS is utilized by military organizations, banks, government agencies, and other highly secure institutions that require the strictest security features available today. To meet these high security needs, the infrastructure of AWS is backed by over 230 security, compliance, and governance features, and AWS supports 90 security standards and compliance certifications. You’ll be able to rest easy knowing that your store is hosted by one of the most secure and well-trusted platforms in the world.

3. Affordability

AWS offers more than 200 services that people can choose from when they decide to start using AWS cloud hosting. These services are fully-featured and completely comprehensive, but they won’t break the bank, either. For more than 160 services, AWS allows customers to pay as they go, only charging them for the individual products they need and use. There are no long-term contracts or complicated licenses required, and if you choose to stop using one of the products, there aren’t any additional costs or fees. Other payment options include Reserved Instances and tiered pricing, which help growing businesses avoid unexpected costs associated with rapid growth.

4. Variety of Services and Products

AWS is flexible enough to handle mobile applications, data processing needs, game development, storage requirements, and a variety of other business needs. AWS has been revising and improving its products since it was first launched over 15 years ago, and it currently offers a wide range of products and services, including solutions for:

  • Analytics
  • AWS Cost Management
  • Blockchain
  • Customer Engagement
  • Developer Tools
  • Front-End Web and Mobile
  • Internet of Things
  • Machine Learning
  • Networking and Content Delivery
  • Quantum Technologies
  • Robotics
  • Security, Identity, and Compliance
  • VR and AR

5. Scalability and Flexibility

According to an article about real world AWS scalability, AWS has the capabilities necessary to make queues a “thing of the past.” Linda Hedges, principal security architect of HPC (High Performance Computing), explains that “AWS offers solid strong scaling and exceptional weak scaling,” as well as “limitless throughput, security, cost-savings, and high-availability.” Since AWS utilizes advanced Ethernet networking technology, even complex and demanding applications can run smoothly on the platform without costing a fortune.
