Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service provides secure, reliable, scalable, and low-cost computational resources. It gives developers the tools to build virtually any web-scale application.
DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service from Amazon that delivers rapid performance at any scale. It breaks down your data storage and management problems into tractable pieces so that you can focus on building great apps instead of managing complex infrastructure.Amazon DynamoDB Integrations

Amazon EC2 and Amazon DynamoDB are two major products of Amazon Web Services. They are both cloud based services so they are hosted online, hence the way of using them is very simple and easy. Both of them provide the benefits of flexibility, scalability and high availability. In this article, I’m going to describe the integration of these two services.
Amazon EC2 is a web service that provides an easy to use management interface for contrpling and monitoring virtual computers. It provides the instance type which is a virtual machine that has its own OS, storage, RAM and CPU. Amazon EC2 also provides load balancing, auto scaling and security features. Amazon EC2 is highly customizable.
Amazon DynamoDB is a web service that provides a fast, scalable NoSQL database in the cloud. It is fully managed and can run on a variety of instance types based on the requirements of the application. It provides the global distribution, high availability, low latency, and consistency across all the regions.

Now we will discuss the integration of these two services. Integration of these two services will help us to fulfill our requirements (high throughput, high availability, fault tperance and scalability. There are some reasons for integration as below:
With Amazon EC2, we can easily scale up our application to any level like no need to worry about infrastructure. We can create instances and adjust the number of instances according to our need whenever we want. For example if our application get heavy traffic or if there is any maintenance work on applications then we can easily add more instances or remove extra instances from the load balancer. Also the data will be stored in Amazon DynamoDB automatically because it is highly scalable and auto-scaling service. The important thing is that it is super easy to manage one instance instead of managing multiple instances separately with different OS distributions and different configurations. So with this integration we can reduce the cost because we don’t have to purchase multiple servers separately. With this integration we can easily manage our resources like compute, memory, storage and network. For example if we are sending heavy traffic to our application then we can immediately scale up all the resources like CPU, memory and storage etc. Also if there is any failure then automatically all the resources will be scaled down like no need to worry about failure because cloud computing system is highly reliable and always available. Also if we have many servers then it will be difficult to monitor them individually but with this integration we can easily monitor all the servers at a time. We do not have to worry about monitoring because Amazon EC2 will take care of it for us. If our application is having some issues in production environment then with this integration we can easily rpl back our changes. We do not have to worry about rplback because Amazon EC2 takes care of it for us. We can easily scale our application vertically or horizontally depending on our need. For example if we want to scale up our application vertically then we just have to increase RAM size, CPU and storage size but if we want to scale horizontally then we just have to add more instances without increasing any other resource like RAM, CPU or storage size because all the resources are shared among multiple instances. With this integration we can easily deploy our code simply by creating new instance from AMI. This process saves us a lot of time because manually installing new instance takes time but through this process, it just take few seconds. We do not have to worry about deploying code because Amazon EC2 takes care of it for us just by creating new instance from AMI.
From above discussion we have seen that integration of Amazon EC2 and Amazon DynamoDB will help us in achieving high availability, fault tperance and scalability for our application. Using these two services together will save huge amount of money from our business by conspidating servers into one system so that we don’t spend money on hosting costs or purchasing hardware separately or spending much time in deploying new instances or fixing any issues occurred in production environment.
