Amazon Lightsail is the easiest way to get started with AWS if only virtual private servers are needed. Lightsail includes everything needed to launch projects quickly (for a low, predictable price):

  • a virtual machine
  • SSD-based storage
  • data transfer
  • DNS management
  • static IP

After an instance is created, it is easy to connect to. Manage the instances with any of the following:

  • Lightsail console
  • Lightsail API
  • Lightsail command line interface (CLI)

Use the AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.
