AWS in the Public Sector

Paving the way for innovation and supporting world-changing projects in government, education, nonprofit, and healthcare organizations

Government, education, nonprofit, and healthcare organizations around the world face unique challenges to accomplish complex missions with limited resources. Public sector leaders engaged in true cloud computing projects overwhelmingly turn to the power and speed of Amazon Web Services (AWS) when they want to serve citizens more effectively, accelerate innovation and digital transformation, and put more of their time and resources into their core missions. AWS Public Sector Sales is available to discuss your needs around specific services, workloads, or sovereign cloud regions.

Cost savings

AWS offers low, pay-as-you-go pricing with no up-front expenses or long-term commitments. We are able to build and manage a global infrastructure at scale, and pass the cost saving benefits onto you in the form of lower prices. With the efficiencies of our scale and expertise, we have reduced prices 115 times since AWS launched in 2006.

Agility and instant elasticity

AWS provides a massive global cloud infrastructure that allows you to quickly innovate, experiment, and iterate. Instead of waiting weeks or months for hardware, you can instantly deploy new applications, instantly scale up as your workload grows, and instantly scale down based on demand. 


AWS is a language and operating system agnostic platform. You choose the development platform or programming model that makes the most sense for your mission. You can select which services you use and choose how you use them. This flexibility allows you to focus on innovation, not infrastructure.


Experts recognize that security in the cloud is better than it is with on-premises infrastructure. Broad security certification and accreditation, data encryption at rest and in transit, hardware security modules, and strong physical security all contribute to a more secure way to manage your organization’s IT infrastructure.

Digital Sovereignty at AWS

Our approach to digital sovereignty is to continue to make the AWS Cloud sovereign-by-design—as it has been from day one. We are committed to helping our customers meet digital sovereignty requirements and offering all AWS customers the most advanced set of sovereignty controls and features available in the cloud.

Case studies

Tens of thousands of government, education, nonprofit, and healthcare customers around the world depend on the cloud with the most functionality, innovation, and experience.
