Posted October 09, 2018 09:33:47The big tech company that makes everything from laptops to cloud storage and everything in between is gearing up to sell its first cloud farm in 2019, but it’s not a small one.
Amazon is expected to sell at least 1,000 new, or “premium” data centers by the end of 2019, according to a report from The Information.
The report says Amazon will sell more than 2,000 of these in the next year, and it’s likely to exceed that total, which it says is more than a third of all the data centers Amazon plans to build in 2019.
That’s roughly the same as Apple’s initial cloud farm plans for 2019, which were announced in November and are expected to bring in $300 million for the company.
Amazon will probably sell more of the same in the coming year, but at a lower price point.
The company is not only looking to sell these large data centers, but also a number of smaller data centers.
According to The Information, Amazon plans on leasing space to the first 100 customers who sign up for the service, and that’s just the first step in a long process.
It’ll likely take up to 20 years for the new, “premier” data center to be ready to go.
Amazon’s goal is to use its new cloud service to help customers who want to run a large number of servers, but they’re also aiming to expand to other types of workloads.
A recent report from the tech company said it was working on a cloud-based platform that could “improve the speed and efficiency of virtualization for applications, data centers and servers.”
Amazon is also looking at using its cloud service for data center operations, and its goal is for the cloud service “to become an essential component in the operations of data centers.”
