Overview: Amazon Web Services (AWS) has set high standards for the entire Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) industry by building a solid foundation with comprehensive administrative, physical and logical controls - from strict policies for physical access to its data centers, to well thought-out configuration change management procedures.
