In a rapidly changing IT world, your workloads are likely to become ever more variable. When hosting your own IT environment, you run the risk of losing flexibility. Sometimes workloads may be too high for your infrastructure, while at other times parts of your server park will not be in use. With the AWS Cloud, you have an optimally scalable cloud at your disposal. With the added benefit of taking your business global.
What is the AWS Cloud?
Amazon Web Services, abbreviated to AWS, is arguably the most well-known public cloud. In 2006, Amazon – the world’s largest e-commerce chain – took its first steps into the cloud computing market with an on-demand cloud platform, developed in-house. AWS is said to have started as a service for hosting Amazon’s own webshop. Today it is estimated that Amazon serves more than one third of the global cloud market. Because AWS has been around for some time and has evolved considerably, it is not only the largest platform but also offers solutions to almost every use case.
AWS has a global presence in more than sixty ‘availability zones’ within twenty geographical regions. The number of locations where AWS is available is ever increasing. In the coming years, fifteen new availability zones and five more regions will be added. Click here for a current overview.
