We support a number of internal services as well as customer facing products, such as NAT Gateway, Network Load Balancer, Private Link, Gateway Load Balancer and many others.

For example, how do you ensure customers can scale their application quickly to handle traffic spikes and then back down in a matter of minutes? How do you design a load balancing solution that allows customers to quickly and easily achieve the highest levels of fault tolerance using Amazon EC2?
