Currently, the most popular cloud computing platform is Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the most popular database in the cloud is MySQL. Although Amazon originally launched AWS in 2002 and since has made available many new computing services including infrastructure, e-commerce and Web information services. For the purposes of this paper we will focus on those most relevant to deploying MySQL - specifically Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2), Simple Storage Service (S3) and Elastic Block Store (EBS). These are services which developers can access using web services, specifically REST and SOAP protocols.
