Amazon Lightsail is a cloud-based service that is being offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). It brings together cloud compute power and memory for new cloud users or less experienced cloud users.
AWS brings together memory, processing, storage, and transfer into virtual machines for users to buy and then releases that compute capacity as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2 ) instance. Lightsail acquires its compute power from an EC2 instance. Amazon EC2 is a web service that provides us with a secure and configurable computing capacity on the cloud.
The Lightsail service was designed and introduced by AWS to make it simple to understand and also purchase. The vendor has to manage the infrastructure, which shares the same uptime and global regions and availability zones same as EC2.
Amazon Lightsail provides a number of virtual private servers (VPS). These are VMs with the individual OS but have limited access to the physical server resources. Customers can choose among multiple Lightsail plans with the following characteristics:
All plans come with a static IP address, intuitive management console, and secure shell terminal access, domain name server management, remote desktop access, and also server monitoring. Customers also have access to all the AWS tools.
Lightsail offers you a variety of OS, applications, and stacks so a customer can build a template accordingly. A developer can use the Lightsail command-line interface (CLI) as a substitute to the console.
