If you’re looking to get started with Amazon Web Services (AWS), it is important to have a good understanding of the features and services. This is, of course, no simple task with the sheer number things introduced into the platform. We’re going to take a look at AWS Lightsail, and how it may apply to your next (or first!) AWS deployment.
AWS Lightsail is a VPS (Virtual Private Server) deployment framework which uses the AWS underlying infrastructure to deploy and size simplified template servers to meet some specific application needs. It’s very similar to the experience which will feel familiar for people who have used services like DigitalOcean, Linode, and similar hosting providers.
