Why AWS for Windows? Customers have been running Windows workloads on Amazon Web Services (AWS) for over a decade. We run nearly 2x more Windows Server instances than the next largest cloud provider, according to an IDC report. Our experience running Windows applications has earned our customers' trust, and the number of AWS enterprise customers using Amazon EC2 for Windows Server has grown 5x since 2015. You can select from a number of Windows Server versions including the latest version, Windows Server 2019. In addition, AWS supports everything you need to build and run Windows applications including Active Directory, .NET, System Center, Microsoft SQL Server, Visual Studio, and the first and only fully managed native-Windows file system available in the cloud with FSx for Windows File Server. INTRODUCTION 2 Customers have successfully deployed every Microsoft application available on AWS, including (but not limited to) Microsoft Office, Microsoft Windows Server, Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SharePoint Server, Microsoft Skype for Business, Microsoft Dynamics, Microsoft Remote Desktop Services, and more. Many customers with large volumes of Windows workloads, including NextGen Healthcare and Jobvite, are "all in" with AWS. Some of the largest enterprises in the world, including Dole, Hess, Expedia, Suncorp, and Pitney Bowes run their Microsoft workloads on AWS as part of a hybrid architecture. AWS has an active Premier Support agreement with Microsoft, meaning that customers who host their Microsoft workloads on AWS receive support from both AWS and Microsoft. AWS is a member of the Microsoft Partner Network, licensed to resell Microsoft software via the Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA), an authorized License Mobility partner, and a Microsoft Gold Certified Hosting Partner.
