About

Amazon Web Services (AWS) delivers a set of services that together form a reliable, scalable, and inexpensive computing platform “in the cloud.”

In 2006, Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS), an Amazon.com company, officially began offering developer customers access to in-the-cloud infrastructure services based on Amazon's own back-end technology platform. Today, AWS is a comprehensive cloud services platform, offering compute power, storage, content delivery, and other functionality that enables businesses to cost-effectively deploy applications and services with greater flexibility, scalability and reliability.
