Cloud Is All about Apps, Says Amazon’s CTO

At the Amazon Web Services Summit (AWS) in New York City today, Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon, spent two hours explaining why the cloud changes the game for application developers.

The AWS cloud isn’t just about providing compute, storage and networking resources, he said. AWS’ new focus is enabling developers to deliver and build applications. Amazon has launched over 500 new services in recent years to support that mission – and introduced several new ones at the event.
