Why Amazon Web Services

Why does Cartegraph use Amazon Web Services as our hosted provider? Here are the reasons and some supporting resources.

It is the industry leader.

Think about the impact Amazon.com has had on online retail. Now apply that kind of power to web services – and it’s no surprise that Amazon Web Services is the industry leader. In fact, it has more than 10 times the computing capacity in use than the next 14 largest cloud companies combined. Now when customers ask where their data will be hosted, you can happily reply: “Amazon Web Services—the best in the business.” 

Improved performance.

While we can’t promise there will never be a glitch with AWS, we are confident that our customers will experience improved performance and faster up times with this move. To borrow a blurb from its website, “With AWS, you take advantage of a scalable, reliable, and secure global computing infrastructure, the virtual backbone of Amazon.com’s multi-billion dollar online business that has been honed for over a decade.”

Increased security.

In addition to improved performance, you can assure our customers that their data will be housed in one of the most secure cloud computing environments available today. AWS states that its data centers are designed to satisfy the requirements of the most security-sensitive customers—providing the highest availability while putting strong safeguards in place regarding customer privacy and segregation. Learn more about AWS Security.

Safety in numbers.

Cartegraph isn’t the only company harnessing the power of AWS. Other users include: Dow Jones, Nasa, Netflix, Adobe, Expedia, Airbnb, Pinterest, and more. See the full list and read case studies here.
