Amazon Tweaks Cloud Computing Business Strategy
When Amazon launched Amazon Web Services in 2006, it sparked a cloud computing revolution. Now, Amazon is changing the game again, in a subtle but important way. Amazon EC2 — the prime computing engine at the core of Amazon Web Services — will begin to charge customers by the second rather than by the hour, the compay said in a blog post on Monday. The idea, Amazon said, is to reflect the more modern ways in which developers build apps today. Today, clever modern programming technologies, are changing the way AWS gets used. “Many of our customers are dreaming up applications for EC2 that can make good use of a large number of instances for shorter amounts of time, sometimes just a few minutes,” writes Amazon’s Jeff Barr. The Change is Amazon’s attempt to keep up with the realities of cloud computing.
