Amazon beat Wall Street estimates for its most recent quarter, thanks in large part to its colossal cloud growth.
During the quarter ended in December, Amazon Web Services generated $7.43 billion in net sales, jumping 45% from the same period of 2017. It posted $2.2 billion in operating income — accounting for more than two-thirds of the entire company's total operating income, and 61% higher than this time last year.
For all of 2018, AWS made $25.65 billion in sales, the company reported.
AWS is considered the number one player in the cloud wars, with a more fully-featured offering and more government certifications than most, if not all, of its rivals. Experts say Microsoft is catching up with its Microsoft Azure platform, but Amazon still eats up the lion's share of the market.
In comparison, Microsoft reported earlier this week that its Intelligent Cloud unit generated $9.38 billion of revenue in the same quarter. However, while Intelligent Cloud revenue includes Microsoft Azure, it also includes other cloud and server products as well — and Microsoft doesn't disclose specific revenue figures for Azure. This makes it impossible to directly compare Microsoft's cloud with Amazon's, but suggests that AWS is still ahead of the game.

Indeed, at an Amazon conference in November, AWS CEO Andy Jassy suggested that his company has 51.8% of cloud market share. In comparison, he estimated that Microsoft has 13.3% of the market, Alibaba has 4.6%, and Google has 3.3%.
Product-wise, Amazon has been moving fast as well: In the last quarter, AWS announced a hybrid cloud offering called AWS Outposts, and added significant artificial intelligence capabilities.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
