Amazon Web Services provides developers with direct access to amazon’s robust technology platform. It offers a variety of web services that allow one to build innovative businesses.

Karthik of Aspire Systems has this to say on amazon’s web services – “For quite sometime now, Amazon has been changing the landscape of SaaS with its offering of Hardware as a Service, Computing as a Service etc – so to speak. Many of these services are in beta but EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) and S3 (Simple Storage Service) are quite popular. There are still some reliability issues, for e.g., amazon doesn’t commit to any SLAs but I think these things will be ironed out, as it has happened with other innovative technologies. In fact, there are hugely successful companies that help ISVs in using amazon’s platforms.”
