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 as a business grows. 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.
The AWS platform has grown rapidly since the launch of the first service and it is now the underlying infrastructure for businesses around the world from start-ups to enterprises to government agencies. AWS has over one million customers in over 190 countries leveraging the services from infrastructure locations in the U.S., Europe, South America, Singapore, Australia and Japan.
Companies around the world using AWS range from smaller, fast-growing companies such as Spotify, Airbnb and Pinterest to larger companies such as Royal Dutch Shell, Unilever, Pfizer and NASA.
AWS offers organisations of all sizes a variety of training options, including instructional videos, online practice labs, and instructor-led classes, to become skilled on cloud technologies. As customers become more experienced they can earn AWS Certifications to demonstrate their expertise and help advance their careers, especially within the field of cloud computing management and digital transformation.
