What is AWS?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Training & Certification

AWS Training & CertificationAmazon Web Services (AWS) offers a complete set of infrastructure and application services that enable you to run virtually everything in the cloud: from enterprise applications and big data projects to social games and mobile apps. With traditional infrastructure, it can take weeks to get a server procured, delivered, and running. These long timelines stifle innovation.

With AWS, you can provision resources as you need them, deploying hundreds or even thousands of servers in minutes. Agility at low cost and global reach through the cloud are just two of the factors required today to remain competitive, whether you are a vast enterprise or a small start-up.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) training from New Horizons is for anyone who wants to gain a deeper level of understanding of AWS, whether you are new, have some experience, or are seeking AWS certification.
