Amazon Cloud Hosting Now With Internet Access


Posted on 15th March 2011 by cloudhostingguy in Cloud Hosting

, , , , , , , , Web Services is furthering their dominance in the cloud hosting by allowing users to make their cloud serverdirectly accessible to the internet (bypassing the need for a VPN).

Users can actually specify which of their Amazon VPC (virtual private cloud, also known as a cloud server to all the non-cloud techies) resources they wish to make directly accessible to the Internet and which they do not. Customers would have more control over the virtual networking environment, including selection of IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways.  This will allow them to overall have much more control and customization over their cloud server.

What does this mean?

When you break it all down is means that Enterprise users can create a public-facing subnet for web servers that have access to the Internet, and placing backend systems such as databases or application servers in a private-facing subnet with no Internet access (and a VPN connection).  They can now store large amounts of cloud data on the Amazon S3, with specific permissions being only allowed to VPC cloud server
