English [Auto] So Amazon Web Services is over 10 years in the making and it's a collection of remote computing services that we call Web services these Web services make up a cloud computing platform offered via the Internet and these cloud services cover a number of different categories including storage computing networking databases. Their mission is to enable businesses and developers to use web services to build scalable sophisticated applications on the Internet. Web services is another name for what people now call the cloud. So one thing that drives AWOS is the rapid pace of innovation and we've been continually expanding our services to support virtually any cloud workload. We now have over 50 services available that range from compute storage networking database analytics application services deployment management and also mobile services. In 2015 we launched 722 new features for a total of over 2000 new features available on the platform today. Since its inception in 2006 innovation is in our DNA and our structure an approach to product development and delivery is fundamentally different to any other I.T. vendor. We have decentralized autonomous development teams who are working directly with customers. These development teams are empowered to develop and launch based upon what they learn from those customer interactions and we iterate products continuously and the newest latest is instantly available to customers. There's no need to upgrade deploy or migrate when a feature announcement is ready we push it out and it is instantly available to any customer that uses that service. This approach also enables us to very rapidly introduce and iterate of new services. So we see this today and already typical of AWOS. I wake up this morning and this number is out of date. We are all in excess of 2000 features and functions that we have across all of the various services that we support. On top of the platform let's have a look at some AWOS customers across really three key categories. Enterprise startup and public sector and starting an enterprise I think this is a really good demonstration of the maturity now of the cloud computing environment and you can say here's some well-known names and I strongly recommend that you go and have a look at our website. One of the fantastic things for us is that our customers love to talk about what they're doing on top of our platform. And I frequently say that it's very difficult to come up with maybe an absolutely unique case for your business or an underlying technology that supporting a business application. So learn from what other people are doing and we try and help with that with some fantastic case studies behind lots of these leading enterprise customers. When we look at startup customers I think this really demonstrates that the truth behind the phrase cloud is the new norm and you can see here some very interesting companies that are producing fantastic innovative solutions particularly one of my favorites their super cell the gaming company. Amazing to see what behind is behind the game is really a big data analytics solution very very interesting out there. And then finally public sector customers really for me one of the favorite things that public sector customers demonstrate is the belief and trust in the platform. And we try and enable our public sector customers and our enterprise and start up with a number of regulatory standards that we help them achieve on our platform.
