    A N D CLOUD COMPUTING

  • Cloud technology nourishes the ever-evolving ICT sector in Washington State.

    Once considered a hidden gem in the high-tech world, Washington State has positioned itself at the forefront of emerging technology such as cloud computing, mobile application development and social media. Washington-based revolutionaries Amazon.com and Microsoft both placed big bets on the cloud and, not surprisingly, have become leaders in the field.

    Launched in 2006, Amazon Web Services, a subsidiary of Amazon.com has grown to offer more than 30 different services to thousands of customers in more than 190 countries. Notable clients include reddit.com, Active.com, Ericsson, Netflix, Lionsgate, General Electric and Pinterest, not to mention the U.S. government. The cloud pioneer experienced rapid growth, particularly with the launch of Amazon Elastic Computer Cloud in 2009.

    That was a huge shift for us, says Mark Ryland, senior manager, global public sector at AWS. Customers could essentially run their own virtual machine with EC2.

    Microsofts Windows Azure includes Media, Mobile and Cloud Services, as well as Virtual Machines, Websites and Big Data. Companies ranging from NBC Sports Group to about half of Fortune 500 companies use Windows Azure. Mobile apps a key ICT market in Washington can store data and reach millions of users via the Azure cloud without the expense of a large technology infrastructure.

    We have a thriving ecosystem here, says Susan Sigl, CEO of the Washington Technology Industry Association. Around these anchors, companies large and small develop everything from iPhone apps to more expansive products.
