Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, more commonly known as Amazon EC2, is Amazon Web Services' (AWS) way of allowing their users to modify the size and capacity of the cloud-based IT environment they use to develop, test, and manage applications and programs.
Deploying and maintaining large numbers of servers, both virtual and on-premise, can be challenging, costly and time-consuming. With this in mind, Amazon have created Amazon EC2 Systems Manager to manage all your server instances in one powerful management service.
Amazon Web Services is always looking to improve its offerings to suit evolving SAP application needs. The latest upgrade from the service provider is meant to offer bigger SAP HANA clusters. Over time, AWS clients have found more use for EC2, and that means running large-scale SAP applications.
Top universities, online forums, partners and independent developers alike have been delighted to hear that AWS EC2 F1 Instances with FPAGs are now available in the US East region and will be available in additional regions shortly.

Tagging Elastic Cloud Computing resources in Amazon is something that has been around for 7 years already. However, whereas back in 2010 only 10 tags were permitted per resource, this number has increased five fold to its current total of 50.
