Amazon’s online store is perhaps one of the most best known web service there is. Selling just about everything from baby clothes to self-help books, anyone you meet on the street will probably automatically think of their retail store when you ask them what kind of web service the company provides. The truth though is that Amazon offers a lot more than that in terms of web services.
One of Amazon’s rather useful web service is their cloud services. The Amazon Web Service cloud can be used by businesses for their cloud computing needs, saving them a lot of money that would otherwise be needed for infrastructure expenses – from the actual hardware to personnel and maintenance costs. Of course, with the advantages always comes a disadvantage with many still hesitating to invest in cloud computing due to security issues. However, although security threats will always be a problem cloud computing is proving to be secure enough for many enterprise applications.
