About Amazon Web Services (AWS)


AWS is one of the world’s leading providers of cloud computing.

AWS EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) is a virtual server running either a Linux distribution or Microsoft Windows Server. They do not have a fixed contract term and are billed by the hour or even by the second. There are several plans to choose from, depending on the amount of memory available and the compute units that correspond to virtual processors.

vjoon software can be operated entirely in the cloud via AWS.


AWS S3 (Simple Storage Service) is a file hosting service that can theoretically store any amount of data and is billed according to usage. Access is via HTTP/HTTPS. Amazon first introduced the concept of buckets and objects, which resembles directories and files and has established itself as a standard that other providers also imitate.

AWS S3 can be used with vjoon Storage Engine.
