Amazon Web Services Training and Certification CoursesWhat is Amazon Web Services (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. 

Why should you consider AWS training for your organization?
