EC2 allows you to get a complete computer in the cloud in a matter of seconds. The nice thing about EC2 is that the computer you get will be very similar to the computer you use to develop your software. If you can run your software on your computer, you can almost certainly run it on EC2 without any changes. This is one of EC2’s main advantages compared to other types of compute platforms (such as Lambda): you don’t have to adapt your application to your host.
