Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced that Indeed, the world’s leading job site, has selected AWS as its preferred cloud. As part of the multi-year agreement, Indeed will migrate more than 30 petabytes of data to AWS, moving its customer-facing products, business-critical workloads, and legacy databases to AWS.
As a result of the move, Indeed expects to reduce its global data center footprint by 40% while streamlining its overall IT operations. By running on the world’s leading cloud, Indeed can scale its core data platform on top of AWS’s reliable infrastructure, enhancing the site’s availability and reliability to give users around the world better performance even during periods of peak demand.
Indeed is leveraging the breadth and depth of AWS services, including analytics, machine learning, managed databases, compute, storage, serverless, security, and data warehousing, to accelerate innovation of new customer-facing products and services while reducing development costs for those products by more than 20%. Indeed will leverage AWS to analyze more than one petabyte of data per day, delivering powerful new insights into customer interests, activities, and outcomes to inform how it connects job seekers and employers.
“AWS is our preferred choice for cloud infrastructure and services, and we are excited to provide our data platform users with the increased availability, performance, and security that come with running on AWS,” said Doug Gray, SVP and General Manager of Platforms at Indeed. “By giving our developers access to the wide range of AWS services, we are empowering them to build the most powerful and efficient tools so that we can continue to deliver on our mission to help people get jobs.”
