Initially AWS lunched with Simple Storage Service(S3), Elastic Cloud Computing(EC2) and Simple Queue Service(SQS) service offering. Since then AWS has experienced rapid growth in terms of number of customers, service portfolio and also profitability. AWS also maintained its position as the leader in cloud computing market.
