Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced that Indeed, an online job site, has selected AWS as its preferred cloud, the company said.
As part of the multi-year agreement, Indeed will migrate more than 30 petabytes of data to AWS, moving its customer-facing products, business-critical workloads, and legacy databases to AWS. As a result of the move, Indeed expects to reduce its global data center footprint by 40% while streamlining its overall IT operations.
By running on the world´s cloud, Indeed can scale its core data platform on top of AWS´s reliable infrastructure, enhancing the site´s availability and reliability to give users around the world better performance even during periods of peak demand.
Indeed is leveraging the breadth and depth of AWS services, including analytics, machine learning, managed databases, compute, storage, serverless, security, and data warehousing, to accelerate innovation of new customer-facing products and services while reducing development costs for those products by more than 20%. Indeed will leverage AWS to analyze more than one petabyte of data per day, delivering powerful new insights into customer interests, activities, and outcomes to inform how it connects job seekers and employers.
For 14 years, Amazon Web Services has been the world´s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform. AWS offers over 175 fully featured services for compute, storage, databases, networking, analytics, robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, security, hybrid, virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR), media, and application development, deployment, and management from 77 Availability Zones (AZs) within 24 geographic regions, with announced plans for nine more Availability Zones and three more AWS Regions in Indonesia, Japan, and Spain.
