Enterprises, mid-market and SMBs all have one thing in common: their business applications are critical. Companies of all sizes are running SAP, Oracle, Exchange and many other business applications in the cloud to simplify infrastructure management, deploy more quickly, and lower cost. AWS offers a reliable and flexible cloud infrastructure platform that enables customers to run any type of business application, from small departmental solutions to mission-critical applications in a secure and robust environment.
"We'll be down about 40% in operating costs, and have performance improvement of 40%, because of our move to Amazon Web Services."
Joe Simon, EVP and CTO, Conde Nast
"The five-year total cost of ownership (TCO) of developing, deploying, and managing critical applications in Amazon cloud infrastructure represents a 72% savings compared with deploying the same resources on-premise or in hosted environments."
"Firms need solutions today. The (fast) time-to-market nature, coupled with security, scalability, and the proven experience is the reason why NASDAQ OMX selected AWS to power FinQloud."
- Stacie Swanstrom

Amazon Web Services provides you the ability to put your websites and webapps in the cloud instantly with no upfront costs, or long-term contracts. You can scale your sites to any size, dynamically, and you only pay for what you use. Even better, these resources are available in 10 regions around the world so your sites, and your data, can be where you want them to be.
AWS is a secured, durable technology platform with industry-recognized certifications and audits such as SOC 1 Type 2, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, FISMA Moderate, and ITAR compliant controls. AWS uses the same, proven approaches to security that enterprises have been using for decades including physical security, network separation, and server & storage isolation. AWS customers have control over their data: they own the data, not us; they can encrypt their data at-rest and in-motion, just as they would in their own infrastructure.
Lower TCO for your applications
AWS has reduced its prices 44 times, since it launched in 2006, driven by fast innovation and global scale. With AWS, you can save money by avoiding up-front capital expenses and paying only for resources you use. You can also save time, and gain agility, by reducing the time required to provision infrastructure from weeks, or months, to minutes. In fact, analyst research suggests that the TCO savings in the cloud may be as high as 70% compared to a traditional enterprise datacenter.
