What is AWS?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a comprehensive and globally distributed Cloud platform that offers more than 200 services. These services are delivered in Data Centers around the world and open up rich capabilities for businesses of all sizes. Millions of customers (startups, large corporations, and government entities) rely on AWS to become more agile, save costs, and produce innovation more purposefully and quickly. AWS is considered the most flexible and secure Cloud computing environment today, enabling enterprises to host their IT infrastructure in the Cloud to take advantage of the scalability, availability, and flexibility that the Cloud offers.
