In 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT infrastructure services to businesses in the form of cloud computing.
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. With data center locations in the U.S., Europe, Brazil, Singapore, Japan, and Australia, customers across all industries are taking advantage.
AWS provides a massive global cloud infrastructure that allows you to quickly innovate, experiment and iterate. Instead of waiting weeks or months for hardware, you can instantly deploy new applications, instantly scale up as your workload grows, and instantly scale down based on demand.
Whether you need one virtual server or thousands, whether you need them for a few hours or 24/7, you still only pay for what you use.
AWS is a language and operating system agnostic platform. You choose the development platform or programming model that makes the most sense for your business.
You can choose which services you use, one or several, and choose how you use them. This flexibility allows you to focus on innovation, not infrastructure.
AWS is a secure, durable technology platform with industry-recognized certifications and audits:
PCI DSS Level 1, ISO 27001, FISMA Moderate, FedRAMP, HIPAA, and SOC 1 (formerly referred to as SAS 70 and/or SSAE 16) and SOC 2 audit reports.
Our services and data centers have multiple layers of operational and physical security to ensure the integrity and safety of your data
