In simpler words, Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer. Just think about that! There will no longer be any need for massive disk space to store your crucial documents, software, media files, and anything else digital!
There are several firms investing in this sector, predicting its extreme potential. But Amazon and its wing of Amazon Web Services undisputedly rule the cloud market. Considering the competition is from companies including Google, Microsoft, IBM and Oracle; AWS’ big lead is even more surprising. The question is how did AWS gain this extent of dominance?
Strategy of Pay-As-You-Go Pricing
According to The State of the Developer Nation Q1 2017, “Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the most popular primary cloud hosting for every company size,” The strategy followed by Amazon to achieve this ranking has proven to be simple. The global giant offered storage space and computing servers at ‘cents’, while others such as Oracle charged fortunes for the same.
The security and as the ease of accesses that Amazon provides for cloud technology services have only further strengthened their dominance. As a result, Amazon Web Services has become the focal point of every tech company, most of which are now fighting to build their own public clouds. Cloud technology and cloud computing are definitely going to determine the road for the IT industry.
