      During the 2015 re:Invent keynote, AWS disclosed that they have more than a million active customers every month in 190 countries, including nearly 2,000 government agencies, 5,000 education institutions and more than 17,500 nonprofits.


      According to Amazon, the number of active AWS users exceeds 1,000,000. While small and mid-size companies make up the majority of that user base, recent polls by private consulting firms suggest that enterprise-scale users make up at least 10% of that total.

      Netflix pushes AWS to its limits
      Among enterprises, Netflix was the most prominent early user of AWS, adopting it in 2009.

      According to an article in Business Insider from January 2016, Netflix placed enormous demands on the resources available to AWS at the time, often pushing the service to its limits and beyond. The ongoing pressure from Netflix, combined with Amazon’s willingness to improve its service and meet its customers’ requirements, pushed AWS to develop into the full, enterprise-scale integrated set of services that it is today.

      All in: the big commitment
      By mid-2015, Netflix had gone ‘all in’, closing the last of its major data centers and moving all of its IT operations to AWS. Other enterprises have also gone all-in with AWS, including Intuit, Hertz, and Time, Inc. These companies have demonstrated their willingness to trust AWS with their entire IT operations, including transactions, customer databases, and the rest of the information infrastructure on which they depend. This level of commitment and trust on the part of long-established (and often very conservative) enterprises speaks volumes about the ability of AWS to meet the needs of enterprise-level clients.
