What does Airbnb, Lyft, Slack, Spotify, and Netflix have in common?

Apart from being some of the most recognisable names in global tech and startups, they are also built on AWS.

We’ve all heard of AWS. Amazon Web Services has interwoven itself into the history of today’s desirable tech companies, large corporations, and even notable organisations like NASA and some divisions of the United States and United Kingdom governments, by providing reliable, scalable, and inexpensive cloud computing services that have been foundational to these companies’ growth from their outset.

A case study on Games24x7, a games startup in India, showed that migrating their gaming system to the AWS cloud improved their ability to manage usage spikes by customers whilst retaining low latency, hence preserving user experience despite fluctuating data transmission. Another case study on Halodoc, an Indonesian medical technology startup, revealed that enhanced latency and customer experience owing to the AWS cloud resulted in better time-to-market by 30%.

As the world’s leading cloud computing service provider, AWS has the capacity and is positioned to provide startups not only with the infrastructure to build their business, but the resources to do it excellently.

“AWS has enabled us to achieve our goals, also reaching out to give advice when we are stuck. It’s been a fantastic collaboration so far,” said Abhilash Ramakrishna, Chief Technology Officer at Halodoc
