Looking back at the AWS so far, it has matured and evolved so much particularly over the past few months. The service has also had its fair share of downsides and hardships.

A good example is the Chef software that is now accessible through the AWS market.

Software AG was also another point o focus because it consolidates cloud versions of numerous products such as webMethods Integration Cloud or Alfabet enterprise architecture management.
The cloud ecosystem has also been focused on the security of the user’s information. Amazon.Com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) can foster this measure through Aviatrix NetConnect where users can create virtual private clouds. There is also the FortyCloud’s cloud security SaaS solution where firms can create their secure, virtual private network over a series of geographic locations and data centers. Overall, it takes advantage of the cloud infrastructure.
