About AWS 

Amazon provides infrastructure and a suite of web services that enables developers to create dynamic and robust applications. Although these tools are effective and versatile, they can be complicated to use. RightScale is dedicated to providing powerful and intuitive solutions and ways to take full advantage of Amazon Web Services.  Deploying on AWS can save you time, money, and administrative effort compared to building and maintaining more traditional systems.  Deploying on RightScale will magnify your return on investment, cut your time to market, and reduce the resources required to manage your hosted environment.  Before we show you how we make it easier, let's cover the basics of the services that Amazon provides.  For more information, see
