Amazon Web Services Cloud Business Showing No Signs of Slowing Down
“Today’s topics include Amazon Web Services’ cloud business continuing to grow, and Google rolling out a Kubernetes cloud service catalog and cloud service broker.
Amazon Web Services on April 26 reported first-quarter 2018 revenue of $5.4 billion, an impressive 49 percent year-over-year revenue growth in the public cloud. For comparison, when Amazon began to break out AWS revenue in the first quarter of 2015, revenue was $1.57 billion, and Amazon has continued to grow cloud revenues at a rapid pace every quarter since.
“AWS had the unusual advantage of a seven-year head start before facing like-minded competition, and the team has never slowed down,” Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder and CEO, stated.
