More and more companies are moving to the cloud so they can focus on business agility and faster value creation for their customers. With that move, they are making decisions to migrate critical applications, modernize how operate, and manage what's deployed. Our customers do more with less by delivering software solutions on decoupled infrastructure-as-code produced by devops teams. It's a critical time for cloud providers, and Amazon Web Services is investing in making sure we continue to offer the world's best customer experience for our customer's complex challenges.
