How Big is Amazon? Its Many Businesses In One.
 

 
Since its creation in 1994, Amazon has grown far beyond books. It has become almost synonymous with online shopping, while building a large physical footprint of warehouses and stores, a workforce of more than 600,000 people and a cloud business used extensively by the U.S. government, among others.


Amazon is not the dominant player in many of its sectors. But its range has helped it become the second-most-valuable U.S. company, behind only Apple. A rumor of Amazon's interest in a new field can send that industry into a stock market whirlwind. Below is a snapshot of many of the dozens of companies or divisions that Amazon owns and operates, showing its reach is far and wide.

This episode of the Netflix show by Hassan Minhaj tackles this topic in a great way and convinced me that we need to redefine our definition of "monopoly" in the age of the internet.

Working in IT, i know AWS and Amazon's cloud business alone owns so much of the market share, but I honestly blame that on their competitions (Microsoft, Google, Oracle, IBM, Rackspace, etc) slow entry into the market, and Amazon's magnificent innovation.

Amazon is my internet Walmart, I feel more comfortable ordering sh*t from Amazon rather than the actual manufacturer or company site, and I can get it faster.

This doesn’t even cover clothing brands and other goods Amazon owns..

Amazon is also getting into other tech stuff like healthcare software or something like that. They’re getting their hands on everything.

Aws is so big it takes down pretty much every known app/site that's not fb or twitter own. Everyone uses aws or a service that is backed by it ( heroku) to run their servers. Its crazy

MS has an excuse because they actually were hit with the antitrust. Weird that they made an example of them, but gave everyone else a pass.

When i joined AWS 4 years go, we owned 80% of the worlds cloud capacity.

Just imagine how much we own now...

Last year for the 4th quarter of 2017, my team broke 4 world records 4 weeks straight.

The most Capacity to ever be installed in a week. We held the original record, but we broke it the first week in october, and broke it again every week after that until the end of october...

I worked in the largest regions, of the largest az, of the largest cloud computing company in the world.

Felt good to be part IT history

We even have a Data Center that apple bought from us to support their cloud.

This is exactly what they want. Matter of fact, they bring in other smaller retailers and vendors, allow them to sell product but in turn, they use the very data, reviews and information they receive from the consumers purchasing from those vendors and Amazon then turns around and basically eliminates from the picture once Amazon begin offering the same product, usually at a lower price and better delivery options.
