 About AWS

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a platform that allows an organization to run everything they need in the cloud. This comprehensive set of infrastructure and application services gives you the power to run enterprise applications for your business, complete large-scale data projects, create and launch games, and develop mobile apps. If you were to rely on your current setup without AWS on your side, it could take weeks or longer just to find a server, have it delivered, and configure it so it is up and running smoothly. AWS training from New Horizons helps you increase efficiency and productivity while also giving you powerful tools that can help improve the way your business operates.

Having to adjust your processes to deal with a long timeline leads to lower productivity and reduced innovation in your company. By switching to AWS, you are able to direct resources as needed. This means you can easily deploy hundreds – or even thousands – of servers in a matter of minutes. When it comes to staying competitive in today’s economy, small and large businesses alike must be able to remain agile, manage costs, and reach a global audience through the cloud. New Horizons Learning Group offers courses on AWS that help you learn the platform and use it to your advantage.
