Amazon Web Services (AWS. is a collection of remote computing services that together make up a cloud computing platform offered by Amazon.com.
Amazon Web Services (AWS. are a set of cloud computing services that together comprise a cloud computing platform from Amazon.com. The most central and well-known of these services are Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3.Amazon EC2 is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers. Amazon EC2 eliminates the need to invest in building an actual physical server farm, reducing upfront capital expenses and increasing flexibility.
Square is a financial services and payments company founded in 2009 by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey. Square offers electronic payment systems for both merchants and consumers. The company's hardware dongle allows merchants to accept credit cards using smart phones and tablets.
The integration between Amazon CloudWatch and Square involves the use of both Square devices and Amazon CloudWatch to monitor, configure, and control servers in different places all over the world. For example, two large web sites can use a large number of servers scattered around the world to gain speed and availability for their customers while saving money. These two sites would use two different companies for managing their servers. In this case, they choose Amazon as their cloud provider and Square as their POS provider.
When such company receives an order from its customers, it sends the order through Square to its own office. Once the office receives the order, it then starts sending the order to one or more of the connected servers in locations across the world through Square. When the order arrives at a location, it is processed into a web page for viewing by customers on the web site. The web site then sends back an e-mail message notifying the merchant that the order has been received into one of its servers in a different location. This process repeats itself constantly. Each time an order is placed by a customer in any location anywhere in the world, it will go through Square and will be sent to one or more servers managed by Amazon servers located in different places in the world.
One of the major issues with such system is that if one of the servers crashes during the process before receiving an order from Square, then chances are high that the order will be lost and never be delivered to customers since there are no backups of data in such systems. Another issue with such type system is that if one of the servers fails to respond after receiving an order from Square, then other servers must keep trying to reach the failing server to ensure that orders are not lost even after multiple attempts, which may lead to congestion and slow data transfer rates among servers which may result in orders being delayed or never being delivered at all if Square decides to drop off orders that have not been delivered or accepted within a specific timeframe determined by Square. This issue can be solved by integrating Amazon CloudWatch with Square resulting in lower failure rates for both parties and improved customer satisfaction rates with faster delivery rates and reliability on part of both parties involved.
Amazon CloudWatch monitors the health of all resources in an AWS account, thereby providing a common operational picture of all resources across all regions for consolidated billing purposes. CloudWatch helps AWS customers understand and isolate resource-related issues faster by delivering metrics for individual Amazon EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancers, individual EBS volumes, RDS DB Instances, Auto Scaling Groups, CloudWatch Logs, etc.. Amazon CloudWatch timestamps event records and delivers them to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3. allowing companies to choose either real-time or log file–based retention policies. CloudWatch alarms can be configured through the AWS Management Console or through direct calls to the AWS APIs or SDKs. CloudWatch Logs is currently in preview release .
In terms of integration with Square, Amazon CloudWatch can provide alerts whenever one of Square's servers fails to process an order within a given timeframe determined by Square's technical team. As soon as one of Square's servers fails to process an order within a given timeframe determined by Square's technical team, Amazon CloudWatch will send notifications via email, SMS messages, or phone calls to different members of their technical team who will be able to determine whether to continue sending orders to Square's servers or reroute orders to other Square's servers or if it is not possible to reroute orders then reroute orders directly to another company's servers instead of Square's servers until such time that Square's technical team resolves the problem with its server(s. This integration can help prevent many problems with orders being lost due to technical issues on part of either party involved with this integration and it can also help reduce customer dissatisfaction since orders will be delivered faster since there are no delays between when an order is placed by a customer and when it arrives at one of Square's servers around the world for processing into a web page for viewing by said customer on the web site operated by Square.
Another benefit of integrating Amazon CloudWatch with Square is that it can help reduce server outages due to technical issues on part of either party involved with this integration since it can help prevent situations where multiple servers fail to process an order within a given timeframe determined by Square's technical team which may result in orders being delayed or never being delivered at all if Square decides to drop off orders that have not been delivered or accepted within a specific timeframe determined by Square.
