Why AWS Has 32% of the Global Cloud Computing Market
AWS is the largest cloud platform provider in the world. It is estimated that AWS controls more than 32% of the cloud market with its closest competitor, Microsoft's Azure, trailing behind at just 17%. Considering that AWS started as an experiment to drive revenue by utilizing unused resources in its data centers, this is huge. What makes AWS the number one cloud platform, though?
AWS has always emphasized customer-first practices inherited by the DNA of the retail arm of Amazon's business. This has made AWS an easier partner to work with than other services.
Likewise, AWS can be very affordable. All of AWS's services are charged based on usage. There aren't any upfront costs associated with using AWS resources. That means startups can build a business with little capital and scale as needed.
Data governance and privacy laws are now an important concern for organizations. AWS offers data centers in most regions throughout the world. Businesses can store and handle data as required by law with little effort.
There are many reasons why AWS is the largest cloud provider in the world. The couple mentioned above doesn't even scratch the surface of what AWS offers. The AWS Solutions Architect Associate certification will help cloud engineers understand what services AWS offers and assist with deciding which cloud resources are best for various use-cases.
