July 30, 2018 / James Bourne

Revenue for Amazon Web Services (AWS) went up 49% year over year to $6.1 billion (£4.6bn) representing another stellar quarter for the cloud infrastructure giant. The AWS revenues, up from $4.1bn this time last year and up from $5.4bn in the previous quarter, comprise 11.5% of Amazon’s total revenues of $52.9bn.In an analyst call after the announcement was made, Amazon chief financial officer Brian Olsavsky noted how AWS’ ability to save on infrastructure resources has helped not only the company’s customers, but also on the consumer side of Amazon’s business.“Our growth is coming from customers that span from startups to enterprise customers to government agencies, and they start small and then they continue to build and shift their businesses to us,” said Olsavsky. “A large number have gone all-in on AWS, and have had a chance to lower their cost structures as a result.”
