About the AWS Guide

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a leader for cloud service, and in the last 10 years, cloud computing has snowballed from pure data storage of files to complex systems and applications. Indeed, at this time it’s almost impossible to run any system within your enterprise that doesn't have cloud elements connecting into it. Consider this if you’re using email a smartphone or documents, then your data is being stored in the Cloud.

The concept for Amazon's AWS was initially released in 2002 with disparate tools and services. The first official service came in 2004 with the introduction of Simple Queue Service (SQS). Amazon relaunched AWS in 2006 as a commercial solution and has continued to grow. AWS now leads cloud providers and supports more than 25 core services, from analytics to developer tools, and media services to robotics.

There is no longer an argument for whether or not you should be using cloud services. The real question is: how far do we go in using cloud services? Download the eBook to understand what AWS is all about, it’s fundamentals, core concepts and services, and how you can win the race to AWS mastery.
