Comcast selects AWS
January 17, 2018
Comcast Cable has selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) as its preferred public cloud infrastructure provider. Comcast Cable will expand its use of AWS by migrating material workloads and building new applications on AWS.
AWS provides important infrastructure and services to Comcast as it focuses on building cloud-native products and services on AWS that adapt and evolve to meet the needs of customers. That focus is reflected in the X1 Platform, voice-control technology, and Xfinity xFi, Comcast’s personalised Wi-Fi experience that gives customers pinpoint control over their home networks. Comcast’s primary businesses, Comcast Cable and NBCUniversal, are currently running workloads on AWS which has enabled these businesses to become more nimble and launch new, revenue-generating initiatives.
“We have deepened our strategic relationship with AWS, making the industry’s leading cloud our preferred public cloud provider,” said Jan Hofmeyr, Chief Network and Operations Officer and Senior Vice President at Comcast Cable. “Over the years, we have leveraged the breadth and depth of AWS’s services, including compute, storage, and analytics. In that process, we’ve found AWS to be extremely customer focused.”
