AWS is the leading IaaS CSP. Gartner wrote that:

“AWS is a thought leader; it is extraordinarily innovative, exceptionally agile, and very responsive to the market. It has the richest array of IaaS features and Platform as a Service (PaaS)-like capabilities. It continues to rapidly expand its service offerings and offer higher-level solutions. Although it is beginning to face more competition from Microsoft and Google, it retains a multiyear competitive advantage. Although it will not be the ideal fit for every need, it has become the ‘safe choice’ in this market, appealing to customers who desire the broadest range of capabilities and long-term.”
