It’s fair to say Amazon Web Services (AWS) has seen impressive growth since its re-launch in 2006. The platform is now the leading provider of public cloud services worldwide. That growth continued in 2018, it has been confirmed, with a healthy 46% rise in revenue. Read on as we explore the latest AWS performance.
Growing in the cloud
As we move in to 2019, more and more businesses are moving to the cloud. Why? It’s faster, more cost-effective and more scalable. Rather than setting up your own servers, you can use those of a cloud-hosting provider, meaning you only pay for what you need.
This makes it easier when your requirements change, as you can simply adjust your package. For modern businesses, that means complete scalability with zero hassle. Needless to say, it’s becoming an essential for all companies as those who haven’t moved to the cloud risk falling behind their competitors.
AWS reaping the rewards
As a leading provider of public cloud infrastructure, AWS has been a big part of this shift to the cloud. According to CNBC, the Amazon subsidiary saw revenue grow by 46% in the third quarter of 2018. This included a 31% operating margin, which was the highest AWS has reached in over four years.
It’s down in part to a continued commitment to new features through the AWS marketplace, along with a range of price cuts allowing businesses of all sizes to move to the cloud.
