Amazon Web Services (AWS) is currently the world’s most comprehensive and widely adopted cloud platform. AWS offers more than 175 featured services located at global data centers. Now, some fastest-growing startups, leading government agencies, and the largest enterprises are using AWS to become more agile, save money, and speed up innovation.
More Services and More Features
No other cloud provider, across the board, has more functionality than AWS. Its services include:
- Infrastructure technologies (i.e., compute, databases, storage)
- Machine learning and Artificial intelligence
- Data Lakes (a centralized repository used to store all your data, structured or unstructured, at any scale)
- The Internet of Things (IoT) — extends the power of the Internet beyond computers and smartphones to a broad range of other things, processes, and environments. The IoT joins “everything” to the Internet.
AWS has made it faster, easier, and cost-effective not only to move your current applications to the cloud but also to build almost anything about which you can imagine and dream. Amazon Web Services has the widest variety of databases purpose-built for a variety of types of applications to allow customers to use the right tool for the job while also receiving the best performance and cost.
AWS Community is the Largest
Millions of customers, along with tens of thousands of partners worldwide, are part of this robust community. Members include:
- The public sector
- Virtually every industry
- Industries of every size
- Customers across practically every industry and every size
The AWS “About” page states:
The AWS Partner Network (APN) includes thousands of systems integrators who specialize in AWS services and tens of thousands of independent software vendors (ISVs) who adapt their technology to work on AWS.
Amazon Web Services came about due to a need for a cloud computing environment that would be the most secure and flexible available in today’s world. The service’s core infrastructure is in place to satisfy security requirements for high-sensitivity organizations such as global banks, the military, and others. AWS is supported by a deep set of cloud security, along with 230 security, compliance, and governance features and services. Add to that, AWS’ 90 security standards and compliance certifications, along with 117 AWS services that store customer data and offer the ability to encrypt that data.
Amazon’s Speed of Innovation
AWS is continually accelerating the pace at which it invents completely new technologies. These are the innovations that businesses and industries can use to improve their businesses. The server-less computing space, pioneered by AWS in 2014, was launched by AWS Lambda. This extraordinary finding enables developers to run their codes without managing or provisioning servers.
Amazon SageMaker, built by AWS, is a fully managed machine learning service that permits developers and scientists to use this program, needing no previous experience.
AWS has been around for more than 13 years. The service leads the industry in maturity, performance, experience, security, performance, and reliability. Amazon Web Service has delivered cloud services on a grander scale than any other cloud provider.
