Moving from legacy on-premises infrastructure and fixed licensing fees to a pay-as-you-go IT model is up to 40x more cost-effective than running infrastructure in-house1.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is secure and resizable compute capacity that can help match the needs of your workload.
In a nutshell: It’s access to reliable, scalable infrastructure on demand.
Amazon EC2 for Microsoft Windows Server (2003 R2, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 and 2012 R2, 2016, 2019 and 2022) is a secure, reliable, and high-performance environment for deploying Windows-based applications and workloads. You can provision instances quickly, and scale up or scale down as you need it, while only paying for what you use.
