    If you want to control your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) from your Gmail then this integration is for you. Once you set it up, whenever you star an email in Gmail, Appy Pie Connect will automatically start, stop or reboot (according to the set schedule) an instance running in your Amazon EC2. With this Gmail- Amazon EC2, you can reduce the costs of running tests and Amazon EC2 instances.

    How this integration works
    • You star an email in Gmail
    • Appy Pie Connect will automatically start, stop or reboot an instance in Amazon EC2

Integration of Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2

Amazon Web Services (AWS. provide a broad range of products to help organizations develop and deploy applications quickly. You can find out more about AWS at aws.amazon.com.

Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. Amazon S3 is designed to deliver 99.999999999% durability, and scale past trillions of objects worldwide. It also offers an industry-leading suite of security features to prevent data loss and unauthorised access. The service integrates with other AWS services, making it easy to build reliable applications and back up data in Amazon S3.

The Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3. API is a web service API that enables you to programmatically upload, download, manipulate and delete objects stored on the Amazon S3 servers. To do this, you must first communicate with the Amazon S3 servers using the REST interface of the API. This guide describes how to use the Amazon S3 API to perform these tasks. It does not describe how to use the HTTP protocol or any of the REST operations supported by the API. For information about using the REST interface of the API, see Using the Amazon S3 API in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.

The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2. is a collection of remote computers that are made available to you through a network interface on your business’s local computer. You can use these computers to run applications or store data. Using the Amazon EC2 API you can programmatically control all aspects of your Amazon EC2 environment and access your instances in order to manage them, access their data, and terminate them if required. Examples include retrieving lists of instances, starting and stopping instances, creating new AMIs from existing instance content, creating images from scratch and--depending on the instance type--receiving real-time notifications of events relating to your instances (such as instances launching, being terminated, and so on.

When you integrate Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2 you can benefit from each service’s capabilities when using them together. For example, if you use an image stored in Amazon S3 as a root device for an instance in EC2, you can take advantage of the faster upload speeds available in S3 compared to EC2. Also, if you use S3 as both a backup destination for your EC2 instances and as a place to store your application data, you can back up your EC2 instances from a remote location without having to install software on those instances. Similarly, you can store application data in Amazon S3 without having to configure your instances with extra storage space.

Integrating Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2 also helps improve security by allowing you to control access more easily than if you use different services from separate providers. For example, if your application stores user data in S3 but uses EC2 for authentication, you can integrate these services so that EC2 blocks users’ access if they don’t authenticate using valid credentials stored in S3. You can also allow users to authenticate using shared credentials stored in S3 without giving them access directly to your EC2 instances. Instead, you could give users access via an application server running in EC2 but securely connected to S3 via a Virtual Private Network (VPN. connection. To ensure secure communication between the application server and S3, you could create an IAM policy that allows connections only during certain times or from certain IP addresses. As another example, you could store your private key for accessing your application server in S3 while storing your public key for your application server in EC2 so that only authorised users have access to the server via their private keys for their public keys stored in S3.

When integrating Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2 you need to consider several issues including how best to meet performance requirements for workloads running in EC2. If you use an image stored in S3 as a root device for an instance in EC2, there may be performance implications due to the transfer speed between EC2 and an instance running from an image stored in S3 being slower than the transfer speed between EC2 and an instance running from an image stored on an EBS volume attached to that instance. However, because EBS volumes are persistent storage, they offer better availability than ephemeral storage such as that provided by images stored in S3 (where data is lost when an instance is terminated. While instances running from an image stored in S3 are less available than instances running from an image stored on EBS volumes attached to those instances, you can use replication features of Amazon S3 to ensure that multiple copies of your application are automatically updated whenever changes are made instead of relying on automatic updates from multiple live instances providing simultaneous updates as is usually required when using EBS volumes for persistent storage.
