Amazon Lightsail is the easiest way to get started with AWS for developers who just need virtual private servers. Lightsail includes everything you need to launch your project quickly – a virtual machine, SSD-based storage, data transfer, DNS management, and a static IP – for a low, predictable price. You manage those Lightsail servers through the Lightsail console or by using the API or command-line interface (CLI).
HeadSoft Consulting can help you switch your servers to use the simpler and more efficient Amazon Lightsail.
