A Broad IT Infrastructure Platform  
The AWS Cloud provides a  broad set of infrastructure services, such as computing power, storage  options, networking and databases, delivered as a utility: on-demand,  available in seconds, with pay-as-you-go pricing. 

A Platform for Virtually Every Use Case   

From data warehousing to deployment tools,  directories to content delivery, over 50 services are available in just a  few mouse clicks with AWS. New services are quick to provision, without  upfront capital expense, allowing enterprises, start-ups, SMBs and  customers in the public sector to access the building blocks they need  to respond quickly to changing business requirements.

Deep Features  and getting deeper by the day  

After almost a decade of working closely with  organizations as diverse as Pinterest, GE and MLB, the AWS Cloud allows  customers to pin, power and play ball in entirely new ways. Deep  features such as a wide range of database engines, server  configurations, encryption and powerful big data tools let you stay  focused on your core business, and not on corralling or cooling  infrastructure. With over 500 new features added in 2014, the AWS Cloud  is getting better by the day.

Security Recognized as Stronger than On-premises  

Security in the cloud is recognized as better  than on-premises. 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  business’ IT infrastructure.

Deep Visibility into Compliance and Governance  

Controlling, auditing and managing identity,  configuration and usage is a crucial part of today’s IT infrastructure  landscape. With the AWS Cloud, these capabilities come built into the  platform helping you meet your compliance, governance and regulatory  requirements.
