Amazon became one of the earliest players in cloud computing in the early 21st Century, when Amazon Web Services was introduced as a platform to help Amazon and its affiliates better leverage data in the application development process. For the first few years it was an internal service at Amazon that played a key role in building the eCommerce giant’s sprawling digital infrastructure. When AWS re-launched in 2006 as a public-facing application, it gave Amazon a head start in the cloud infrastructure market that it maintains to this day; according to the most recent reports, AWS holds a staggering 34% market share.
Simply put, Amazon isn’t an online bookstore anymore, and it hasn’t been for quite a while.
IaaS in the Modern Economy
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is a major segment of the cloud computing market that allows businesses and individuals to unlock the benefits of professional-grade IT infrastructure as a cloud-based subscription service.
In practice, IaaS empowers developers to work without the shackles of storage and scalability constraints, and eliminates most of the concerns associated with traditional infrastructure. Amazon Web Services maintains its massive market share by offering an unparalleled selection of cloud-based applications covering a wide variety of industries and functions, from analysis to video game development. It serves as the digital skeleton of dozens of major companies, including largely cloud-based enterprises like Netflix.
A plurality of the online economy is dependent on AWS to function properly. It’s an incredible toolbox for businesses, but for all of its applications it may not be the most intuitive service in the world. That’s where we come in.
