Capital One is using AWS as a central part of its technology strategy. As a result, the bank plans to reduce its data centre footprint from eight to three by 2018. Capital One is one of the largest banks in the US, offering credit cards, checking and savings accounts, auto loans, rewards, and online banking services for consumers and businesses. It is using or experimenting with nearly every AWS service to develop, test, build, and run its most critical workloads, including its new flagship mobile-banking application.

Rob Alexander, Capital One's Chief Information Officer, says, "The financial services industry attracts some of the worst cyber criminals. We have worked closely with AWS to develop a security model, which we believe enables us to operate more securely in the public cloud than we can in our own data centers." Capital One selected AWS for its security model and for the ability to provision infrastructure on the fly, the elasticity to handle purchasing demands at peak times, its high availability, and its pace of innovation.
