Re: Big Wins Important as Others Nip at Heels
PhillBrit absolutely I think Amazon has demonstrated its ability to not rest on its laurels and reinvent the market that shocked many. They not only changed the game for retail but also for content and devices.

Re: Big Wins Important as Others Nip at Heels
Though Amazon has a huge lead now, no such standing is secure if a company doesn't keep innovating as well as reaching out for and winning major customers. So AWS must continue evolving.

Re: Big Wins Important as Others Nip at Heels
Although it's probably unlikely that Amazon will lose it's first place title anytime soon. They have such a head start on the cloud business that it would take some amazing change in the market for Google or Microsoft to make any quick gains in market share.

Re: Big Wins Important as Others Nip at Heels
Very true the competition is heating up at every angle and the spoils will go the tech company that is nimble enough to anticipate the market.

AWS needs to continue to snag wins such as these because Microsoft, Google, et al, are all coming after them.

Well, Netflix is in direct competition with Amazon Video -- and it switched to completely using AWS a few years ago. So the "frenemies" thing hasn't been a problem for Netflix, and it has boosted the reputation of AWS, I think, since AWS seems to welcome all comers, even ones that compete with Amazon's other divisions.

Re: So the top OTT video services are all on AWS now?
Scott it's a great point but as companies like Amazon become diversified behemoths we will see more of this type of trend.It will be difficult to remain isolated from providers that bridge the content space, consumer space and b2B space like Amazon. It is like the conglomerates were of ages past now we just have highly diversified tech giants like Amazon and Apple venturing into many different areas.

Re: So the top OTT video services are all on AWS now?
Hulu must be a huge win for AWS. I mean, what other services out there utilize so much data? This is certainly an interesting look into how companies move over to public cloud, and OTT might be a good use case here.

Re: So the top OTT video services are all on AWS now?
@mhhfive: Those are all great questions. I was also thinking that Hulu and Amazon are also in somewhat competition in that they are both competing in the original content market and now Hulu is using AWS which makes them "frenemies" as much as partners. Regarding Apple, my guess is that they use their own cloud. I can't see them using someone else.

Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu.. who else in streaming video is on AWS? Crackle? Viki? 

I wonder how Apple hosts its video services... Totally private cloud?
