I suggest (and i'll volunteer later tonight/this week) that a re-org be done on page structure. To wit, the list of services.. Alphabetical just sends the reader all over the place changing gears.. If the services were grouped by basic or general purpose/functionality (eyeball services, dba services, consumer, grid, enterprise, etc) - it would make the article a lot easier to parse. As it stands right now, I'd rather just go to the aws site and hope that they have a better explanation than this page. We can do better.. --Badboyjamie (talk) 18:52, 28 Feb 2011 (UTC)

The content in "Similar or related services" doesn't belong on this page; it should be on a page about web service providers if there is one. I'd like to remove it. If there are no objections, I'll remove it in a few days, if I remember. --Preceding unsigned comment added by AdamGomaa (talk o contribs) 19:29, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Since when was OK to cite defunct blogs as sources of criticism .. power outages, spam?? come on! if you can't spot the fraudulent character behind these criticisms then it's not your call to make the necessary changes to this article. I'm deleting this section until someone else steps in and clear this up.
Just to make my point replace "Amazon web services" with whatever service you can imagine the resulting criticism is equally true. In my mind that's singling out one service for something that has been present in any service sometime.
On November 28, 2012 at AWS' "R: Invent" web developer conference in Las Vegas it announced it was targeting large companies as cloud storage clients. It will further cut prices in its new "Redshift" storage service launching in 2013 to customers with long-term contracts, with prices per-Terabyte-per-year being slashed from the low $20,000's to around $1,000. These prices are according to Reuters. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/29/amazon-cloud-enterprise-idUSL1E8MSE4520121129
This article in The Register is titled, "Cloud storage giant Amazon cuts S3 prices, waits for rivals to die." http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/29/amazon_s3_price_cut/
AWS touts as customers academic organizations, government organizations like NASA's JPL Mars Rover, and companies like Samsung, Netflix, and Shell. Google recently announced a reduction of its cloud storage services.
This article has the 'advert' tag on it, so I thought I'd try to clean the language up. But, frankly, I'm not seeing any advertising language to fix! Can a more experienced Wikipedian point me to the language in this article that is "written like an advertisement"? Or is the tag out of date? Sloc melb (talk) 13:29, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi, my name is Kevin Goddard - I'm the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Social Media Manager. I noticed that two WikiProjects have noted that this page's quality could be improved and also that the page has a flag for improvements to the introduction section.
If there is information that the community needs to improve this page, please let me know and I'll see if it's available. I would also be happy to work with an editor or editors to provide them updates for when we launch new services or other announcements if it would help improve the overall community.
Please note that we are very respectful of the neutral tone of Wikipedia and do not want to use it as a platform. We just want to provide information that we believe can be useful for the Wikipedia community.
There is no mention of ECS (elastic container service) Amos Shapira 20:24, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
The opening sentence here says "...cloud computing services [are] also called web services". That's simply not true.
I am very familiar with both Cloud Computing and with Web Services and in all my readings and conversations I have never heard anyone call Cloud Computing a web service. Although the converse could *maybe* be argued, I feel it would only be in specific circumstances - not a true synonym.
Proof: There is a link in this very sentence to a "Web Services" Wikipedia article which can be readily contrasted with a highly-ranked definition on Google of Cloud Computing *Services* (canada.emc.com/corporate/glossary/cloud-computing-services.htm) Even a cursory reading of the the two articles makes it clear that Web Services and Cloud Computing Services are not the same thing. At best, Web Services are just a small part of the Cloud, which does not mean "also called".
Recommend: Drop the phrase "also called web services". It adds no value anyway. Just the contrary, in fact.
Hi all, As documented below, I am the social media manager for AWS. We wanted to provide some new and updated information to the wiki, which I've done today. I've tried to keep the changes within Wikipedia's guidelines, however if anything is problematic, please feel free to either make the necessary changes, or notify me and I'll do it.
As I stated below, we are very respectful of the tone required for Wikipedia and do not want to use it as a platform. I am just providing information that we believe can be useful for the Wikipedia community. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by KevinJGoddard (talk o contribs) 22:58, 6 April 2016?
Hi! tedder thanks for the feedback! I thought I did the four tildes, but alas! Anyway, today we've added a new Infrastructure map that depicts our regions and availability zones. We thought the page may benefit with something more accurate? Again, if this is an issue or we need changes, please let me know and I'll make them happen.
I think those subarticles have trouble with stand-alone notability, and would benefit from being merged here. Thoughts? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:29, 14 November 2016 (UTC)
Hi! Just wanted to note that I've updated the Infrastructure map with our new regions. Also, I adjusted the text to indicate the number of regions is now 16 and update the Canada region, which is officially called Canada (Central) not Canada (Montreal). If any of these changes are a problem, please let me know and I'm happy to correct! KevinJGoddard (talk) 19:30, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
I have also added an entry for Amazon Quicksight under Analytics, linking to the QuickSite web page. If this should link to somewhere else, please let me know. If the Wikipedia community feels that QuickSight should have it's own Wikipedia entry and I can be of assistance with information, please let me know! KevinJGoddard (talk) 21:08, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
