AWS hits $6.7bn in quarterly revenue – as the biggest cloud infrastructure players get even bigger

October 26, 2018 / James Bourne

Amazon Web Services (AWS) hit almost $6.7 billion (£5.2bn) in revenues for its most recent quarter – up almost 10% from the previous quarter and marking a 45% jump from this time last year. Despite Amazon’s overall figures being a slight disappointment for investors and analysts – shares dipped in after-hours trading after total quarterly revenues of $56.6bn missed the $57.1bn target – AWS continues to reach new heights. Of particular interest is the operating income statistic. AWS profit broke $2bn for the most recent quarter. This represents more than half of Amazon’s overall profit of $3.7bn. Net income was $2.8bn.
