From your initial customer to your initial public offering.
Launching is fast and simple with AWS, and your infrastructure will grow with your business. Add sophisticated monitoring, data analytics, content delivery, notifications or high delivery email services as and when you need them, and scale your storage and compute requirements as you go.
Stay lean as you grow.
Extend your runway by driving down your AWS infrastructure costs. Scale based on demand, consolidate usage across your accounts to reach lower payment tiers, reserve guaranteed capacity for a lower hourly rate and name your price for unused servers on the spot market.
Global by default.
With AWS, global expansion doesn’t require a global workforce. Take advantage of multiple datacenters in multiple geographic regions to build applications which can reach customers across the world with low latency, localized infrastructure.
Bring your own app.
Build with the tools you know. From HTML5 mobile apps, to Django-driven social networks, Amazon EC2 gives you the keys* to make the technology choices which best suit your business, and the flexibility to change your mind.
Use the data created by your application to focus the next iteration of development, to decide when to pivot, or identify the next opportunity for your team. Explore your data with powerful Hadoop analytics, combine structured and unstructured data or just process your logs more quickly.
