A lot of people are hesitant to use AWS because they don’t feel comfortable with the idea of storing their information on a third-party server. However, by leveraging AWS’ Secure, Reliable, Scalable Services, you can safely and securely utilize your own virtual private cloud to store your data in the way that’s most convenient for you while still accessing your files from any computer or mobile device around the world. 


How to use AWS’ secure, reliable scalable services 

Developers who are just starting with AWS can quickly become overwhelmed by all of its offerings. But there’s no need to fret. AWS has great free tooling that makes it easy for newbies (and veterans alike) to get started. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of 10 AWS tools and services that are relatively easy to understand even if you’re not an infrastructure professional. We recommend you start your exploration with Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), which gives users a virtual sandbox in which they can experiment and build confidence. It also acts as a safe testing ground should you decide that you do want your services exposed over public networks or if you want to expand your current use cases into ones using multiple accounts.
