Amazon Web Services recently celebrated their 8th anniversary since launching the Amazon S3 cloud storage service on March 14, 2006, the first of many cloud services that companies around the globe now rely on, in many instances, for their sole provider of infrastructure and computing services.
The AWS website is full of testimonials of organizations whose IT business model revolves solely on AWS. Most IT professionals can cite Netflix as a prime example, but new household names pop up all the time who wouldn't be able to offer the same scale of service to their clients without AWS. AWS is by no means the sole cloud provider, but they are the most well-known.
Congratulations Amazon on eight years of leading innovation in cloud computing!
