What is Cloud Computing, and what is Amazon Web Services (AWS)? If you are currently working in the IT industry, you may already be familiar with AWS and the importance of cloud computing. Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides servers, storage, networking, remote computing, email, mobile development, and security to the worldwide market. AWS is a leading cloud computing platform, controlling more than a third of the cloud market – almost twice as much as it’s next closest competitor. Many large multinational companies use AWS, including Netflix, Reddit, Quora, Airbnb, Foursquare, and even NASA! Accounting for about 13% of Amazon’s total revenue as of Q2 2021, AWS is a primary profit driver for Amazon. With an industry presence this significant, obtaining AWS certifications is a great way to position yourself to land the IT job you desire.
