Amazon Web Services: How Big Is AWS?

Amazon Web Services Statistics

Working with technology companies, I’m amazed at how many are hosting their platforms on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Netflix, Reddit, AOL, and Pinterest are now running on Amazon services. Even GoDaddy is moving a majority of its infrastructure there.

Key to the popularity is the combination of the high availability and low cost. Amazon S3, for example, is designed to deliver 99.999999999% availability, serving trillions of objects worldwide. Amazon is notorious for its aggressive pricing and AWS’ is no different. That high availability and low cost has been attractive to startups who wish to scale quickly and efficiently.

$18 billion in revenue for 2017 and nearly 50% growth in the second quarter of 2018 show that the Amazon Cloud solution continues to attract new customers left and right.

The downside, in my opinion, has been user experience and support. Sign into your Amazon Web Services panel and you’re met with dozens of options with very little detail on what platforms actually do and how they work together. Check out the list of products below the infographic… everything from hosting to AI have their own platforms on AWS.

Sure, you can dig and educate yourself. However, I’ve found that simple processes like setting up a website take way too much effort there. Of course, I’m not a full-time web developer. Many of the companies I work with give me a strange look when I tell them about the issues I have.

This infographic from HostingTribunal,  AWS Web Hosting, does a great job in documenting the history of AWS, current growth statistics, alliances and partnerships, major outages, why you should host with AWS, key web hosting solutions on AWS, and success stories:
