Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services began exposing key infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services -- now widely known as cloud computing -- to allow them to leverage a new business model and turn capital infrastructure expenses into variable costs. Using AWS, businesses can take advantage of Amazon's expertise and economies of scale to access resources when their business needs them, delivering results faster and at a lower cost. Today, AWS is a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of enterprise, government and startup businesses in 190 countries around the world.
