You may think of Amazon as your go-to shopping outlet, but did you know they also own the world’s premiere cloud computing service, Amazon Web Services? Since 2006, Amazon Web Services has been helping businesses of all sizes with their computing, data storage, analytics, application, and deployment services. Today, let’s take a look at why you should continue to utilize Amazon and, in particular, this product.
Many major companies use Amazon Web Services.
The streaming giant, Netflix, was one of the first big companies to adopt Amazon Web Services and it did so back in 2009. In 2015, Netflix moved all of its IT operations to Amazon Web Services, and is seen as the first company to make Amazon Web Services more mainstream. Other big companies that utilize Amazon Web Services today include Hertz, Time, Inc., Pinterest, and Airbnb.
We use Amazon Web Services to host our clients’ websites.
As a web development company, we use Amazon Web Services to host our clients’ websites. What’s great about Amazon Web Services is that it’s compatible with the three content management systems (CMS) we use: WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla. Amazon Web Services is great as it has the withband to cope with large website traffic without crashing.
Amazon Web Services is cost effective.
We also use Amazon Web Services because it only charges you for the services you use. There’s no up-front costs or contracts. With Amazon Web Services, you have the option to pay as you go or you can pay on a fixed monthly setup. You can end your relationship with Amazon Web Services at any time, or upgrade or downgrade their services whenever you please.
Amazon Web Services is very secure.
Amazon Web Services has data centers all over the world that are continuously monitored and maintained. The reason Amazon has multiple data centers is that in the event one center has a problem, it won’t impact everyone worldwide. The location of these data centers are hidden, and that’s so no one can break in and obtain their clients’ private information. This makes Amazon Web Services stand out from the crowd. Their product is more reliable and responsible than anyone else’s out there.
