Amazon AWS

AWS Windows Server     Amazon Web Services (AWS) allows you to build a virtual computer or computers on their hardware in state of the art datacentres.

These computers can be used for anything you would use a computer for. For example you could put your company mail server onto an Amazon instance – thats what Amazon calls a virtual computer, if your own internet connection was a bit shaky. You could then take advantage of the fact that Amazons servers are very unlikely to go down and are connected directly to the backbone of the internet.

AWS offer a free tier to experiment with.

Charges are incurred when users download from your computer – could be a webserver- and also when your instance is running. Obviously whilst stopped it incurs no cost.
