Our customers are doing all sorts of interesting work on AWS. We’ve been working with them to produce a number of AWS Case Studies so as to better spread the word about how cloud computing and AWS are changing the world. Here are the latest case studies:


European Space Agency – The Data User Elements Program collects data about the planet that is used by various agencies and organizations around the world. The program houses some of its data and end-user products in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). In addition, the program uses Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) to analyze its service usage statistics.

PBS – PBS, a private, non-profit corporation, provides content through television, the Web and mobile applications. PBS Interactive, the department responsible for PBS Internet and mobile presence, improved its video streaming performance by migrating to Amazon Web Services (AWS) to utilize the content delivery service Amazon CloudFront and increase its existing usage of Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).


Ericsson – Ericsson is the world’s leading provider of technology and services to telecom operators. The company’s portfolio comprises mobile and fixed network infrastructure, telecom services, software broadband and multimedia solutions for operators, enterprises and the media industry. The company uses Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and the RightScale Cloud Management Platform for provisioning and auto-scale functionality, as well as hosting in multiple Amazon Web Services (AWS) locations with failover between installations, partly based on RightScale features.


Bioproximity – Bioproximity provides proteomic analytical services for pharmaceutical companies and academic organizations. The company uses Cluster Compute Instances for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to run its complex analysis processes and search algorithms.
