In 2003, two engineers working in Amazon had a historic epiphany. They decided to commercialize their retail brand’s existing IT infrastructure as a platform for providing automated and standardized cloud services over the Internet.
More than 17 years later, AWS is now the biggest name in the cloud computing industry and competes with Google, Microsoft, IBM, and other IT giants. During this period, AWS has been credited for transforming the cloud landscape, thanks to its flexible cloud solutions and scalable infrastructure. Some of the AWS data centers are located in Brazil, Europe, Japan, Singapore, and US, guaranteeing that businesses around the world have full data backups as soon as their operations are halted due to a sudden disaster.
