Yes, AWS many features few are listed below.

S3: Simple storage service with tools like cloud berry or S3.
Easy to download and upload the data in cloud.
Easy to move data from 1 bucket to other.

EC2: Elastic cloud compute; All the Instances (Servers) are Virtual machines.
Easy to take Amazon Machine Image (AMI'S),
Easy to create number of servers with the single attempt.
Can create the schedule to start and stop the servers
Easy to stop and start the instances with AWS tool.

EBS: Elastic Block storage
Can create volumes either standard or IOPS volumes
Can take snapshots of volumes
Easy to attach and detach volumes from servers
Easy to increase the size of the volumes with less down time or without downtime

RDS: It provides different databases like SQL, MYSQL, Oracle etc.

I’m nobody but still I’m somebody to someone………….

Amazon RDS and Amazon Redshift are both packaged database services delivered in a PaaS model.

RDS is available for a number of different DBMS (Oracle, SQL Server, etc), and provides a specific set of features for each type of database. If you are happy with the RDS feature set then this could be for you. If you want more features of a given DBMS than is provided by RDS then you need to install your DBMS on a EC2 instance.

If you are new to AWS and are coming from a traditional data centre environment, then starting with the IaaS model is less of a learning curve than going directly to PaaS. With IaaS Amazon takes care of the racking and stacking and connecting the network cables, you are responsible for the operating system onwards.

My organisation moved all its production servers to AWS last year using the IaaS model and are pleased with the result, both in improved manageability and cost reduction. We are now planning our first Redshift exploitation as part of reworking our BI environment.

Redshift is a column-orientated database with a high degree of in-memory data storage. This can give much faster response to SELECT queries than a row-orientated database, but with current technology Redshift cannot match the INSERT performance of the best row-orientated databases. Redshift does have a fast bulk load capability, and part of designing a Redshift database is working out how you can get your data into Redshift using the fast load rather than using INSERT. In general, Redshift can be easier to exploit for BI workloads than for OLTP workloads, but I do know that some organisations are using Redshift for both workload types.

If you have a major project where you are considering using AWS, then the best advice I can give you is to contact AWS and arrange some (free) pre-sales support to showcase AWS capabilities to both technical and management staff. You should also arrange similar showcases for the major alternative vendors (Rackspace and Microsoft Azure).
