A lot of web services are available on the web right now. One of the best services out there is AWS or Amazon Web Services. This service allows businesses to move into action large scale application infrastructures across multiple locations.

When deploying these significantly large cloud based applications, it is always important to take into account the cost and complexity of operating such applications.

This paper discusses the different tools and technologies to provide new instances, configure the instances to meet your requirements, and put into action your application code. This paper also tackles strategies to ensure that your instances remain stateless, resulting in an architecture that is more scalable and fault tolerant.

The strategies and techniques we discuss in this paper allows you to scale your service from a single instance to thousands of instances while maintaining the same set of processes and tools to manage them. This is good news for people that want to save up on business expenditures.
