“In AWS, the customer usage remained strong. We continue to see companies meaningfully growing their plans to move to AWS while we’re busy gearing up for our annual ‘re:Invent’ conference,” said Brian Olsavsky, Senior Vice President and CFO at Amazon during the earnings call with analysts on Thursday.

This year, the AWS flagship ‘re:Invent’ conference will be a free three-week virtual event running from November 30 through December 18.

AWS has won the leading payments technology company Global Payments, to manage issuer processing and handling of their approximately 27 billion transactions processed annually.

The company now has biotechnology company Moderna as a client, to accelerate the development of messenger RNA medicines to prevent and fight diseases, including a vaccine candidate against Covid-19.

“AWS announced the general availability of Amazon Braket, a fully managed service that provides a development environment to help customers explore and design quantum algorithms,” Amazon said.

Quantum computing has the potential to solve computational problems that are beyond the reach of classical computers by harnessing the laws of quantum mechanics to build more powerful tools for processing information.

AWS has announced the general availability of Amazon Timestream, a new time series database for IoT and operational applications that can scale to process trillions of time series events per day up to 1,000 times faster than relational databases, and at as low as 1/10th the cost.
