All information collected by Software Statistics Service is stored on dedicated servers of Amazon Elastic Cloud (EC2) , a web service providing resizable compute capacity in the cloud. The benefits of Amazon EC2 for SSS include:
Amazon EC2 enables SSS to increase or decrease capacity within minutes. It greatly reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances, allowing to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as the computing requirements change. It also provides SSS with complete control of the computing resources and lets to run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.
Security within Amazon EC2 is provided on multiple levels: the operating system (OS) of the host system, the virtual instance operating system or guest OS, a firewall, and signed API calls.
Amazon EC2 offers a highly reliable environment, allowing SSS developers to make a failure resilient service and eliminate common failure scenarios.
Hope you will appreciate the enhanced speed and overall optimised performance of the service and welcome you to give it a try!
