Amazon Web Services

Launched in 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a subsidiary of Amazon.com and the dominant player in the cloud computing space with 33% market share.

In its Q1, 2017 earnings call, Amazon.com announced that first quarter sales were up 23% to $35.7 billion with its cloud business growing 43% to $3.7 billion. Whilst AWS' competitors reported higher growth rates in quarter one, AWS' revenues are larger than Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, IBM Softlayer, Alibaba Cloud and Oracle Cloud combined.

In the quarterly announcement, AWS revealed plans to open an infrastructure region with three availability zones in Sweden in 2018. Five new availability zones in France and China are expected to come online in 2017. The tech giant also operates in 42 availability zones across 16 infrastructure regions worldwide.

The AWS regions and availability zones include: Oregon, Northern California, North Virginia, Ohio, Central Canada, Sao Paulo, Ireland, Frankfurt, London, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Seoul, Mumbai and Beijing. Paris and Ningxia are coming soon.

AWS Direct Connect is the product provided by the company delivering private connectivity between AWS and data centers/colocation environments. With this solution, data that would have previously been transported over the Internet can now be delivered through a private network connection which can reduce costs, increase bandwidth and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.
