How to integrate different AWS services to create interesting applications?

Cloud (AWS or any other) provides a cost efficient and quicker approach of deploying applications. For this AWS provides a myriad of services including EC2, S3, RDS, Rekognition and many more. Each of these individual services are powerful enough. For ex., EC2 provides virtual servers from 1/2 GB (t2.nano) to 3,904 GB (x1e.32xlarge) of RAM. The high end memory instances are used for in-memory databases and analytics. What makes AWS more powerful is integrating these services to meet the business requirements and save cost.

The below web architecture uses WAF, CloudFront, ELB, EC2, EBS, RDS and Auto Scaling services. The architecture can also use Serverless technologies like Lambda, DynamoDB and others to make the application easy to develop/maintain, highly available and scalable.

This blog is all about references with detailed instructions on how to integrate different AWS services to build very interesting applications. It would be a good learning experience for those who are getting started with AWS to try the below and figure out what AWS has to offer.
