Pre-requisite:- EC2

EC2 stands for Elastic Compute Cloud and it is an AWS web service for on-demand computing service. It is based on the pay-as-you-go model. We can create instances anytime from anywhere via the internet. We can easily create the instance or terminate the instance within minutes with our required operating system. we can configure the RAM, Storage, and networking configuration as per our use. The bill will generate end of the month. One of the most interesting things is we can create our virtual ec2 instance from any region like Mumbai(India),  California(USA), etc.
