Is The Cloud Really Just Someone Else’s Computer?

“Is the cloud really just someone else’s computer?” Can an industry that is growing as fast as the cloud be the result of some ad gimmick? Amazon Web Services (AWS) reported results on April 25 showing that their sales grew to $7.7 billion compared to $5.44 billion in the same period last year. If AWS maintains this incredible growth over subsequent quarters, they could add $9.04 billion in revenue during a one-year period. The incremental revenue from AWS alone would be greater than the revenue that enabled Adobe to claim the #339 spot on the Fortune 500 list in 2019.
