The Value of AWS Cloud

The AWS Cloud provides a broad set of infrastructure services, such as computing power, storage options, networking and databases that are delivered as a utility: on-demand, available in seconds, with pay-as-you-go pricing. From data warehousing to deployment tools, directories to content delivery, over 90 AWS services are available. New services can be provisioned quickly, without upfront capital expense. This allows enterprises, start-ups, small and medium-sized businesses, and customers in the public sector to access the building blocks they need to respond quickly to changing business requirements.

Amazon Case Studies

So, why Amazon Web Services?

After a comprehensive RFP and review process involving more than 16 companies, Unilever chose Amazon Web Services (AWS). Unilever’s priorities in choosing a digital marketing platform included flexibility, a global infrastructure, technology, as well as a rich ecosystem of members. “With AWS, we have the same hosting provider for all regions, which means we don’t have to customize and tweak hosting solutions per region,” says Yalamanchili. “Unilever is focused on delivering great brands to consumers; it’s not an IT shop. We’re able to spend less and get more innovation by working with AWS and members of the AWS Partner Network.”

The City of McKinney, Texas, about 15 miles north of Dallas and home to 155,000 people, was ranked the No. 1 Best Place to Live in 2014 by Money Magazine. The city’s IT department is going all-in on AWS and uses the platform to run a wide range of services and applications, such as its land-management and records-management systems. By using AWS, the city’s IT department can focus on delivering new and better services for its fast-growing population and city employees instead of spending resources buying and maintaining IT infrastructure.

Pacific Life Insurance has provided financial services and products to individuals and business customers for nearly 150 years. In an effort to control its IT costs, the company turned to AWS as part of a hybrid computing environment, using the AWS cloud in combination with data centers in California and Nebraska to run actuarial tasks that are used to set pricing and create new products. Using AWS, Pacific Life can quickly scale up additional compute capacity with less cost and IT overhead than by adding to its own data center assets, while benefitting from built-in security features in AWS products that help Pacific Life with compliance issues.
