In 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT
infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services -- now
commonly known as cloud computing. One of the key benefits of cloud computing
is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low
variable costs that scale with your business. With the Cloud, businesses no
longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks
or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands
of servers in minutes and deliver results faster.
Today, Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable,
low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands
of businesses in 190 countries around the world.
