Why choose AWS?

Millions of customers from every industry choose to build on the AWS Cloud. That’s more than our top four competitors. Combined. Traditional enterprises like Siemens and 3M rely on AWS to migrate critical applications, and improve their financial position by retiring costly legacy technology. Technology companies like Airbnb and Netflix rely on AWS to innovate and scale. And the public sector, which includes research institutions like Stanford, nonprofits like the American Heart Association, and the U.S. federal government trust AWS for its security and reliability. With the most innovation, the most functionality, and the most experience, AWS empowers organizations to tackle their biggest technology challenges, build innovative solutions, become more agile, and improve their bottom line. So, if you’re trying to lead your industry, doesn’t it make sense to go with the world’s leading cloud?
