Amazon Web Services Alternatives and Similar Websites and Apps

You know Amazon, and you know Amazon has a giant data infrastructure with seemingly unlimited cloud computing potential. That's why Amazon Web Services exists and is as known as it is, after all.

Amazon Web Services offers in-the-cloud infrastructure services based on Amazon's own back-end technology platform.

If you find you don't need the backing of the massive processing resources that Amazon can provide potentially at the expense of you or your business's privacy, self-hosted alternatives to AWS could provide some peace of mind.

If you are more privacy inclined and would like to avoid using the infrastructure of a company that buys and sells data as frequently as Amazon, we here at AlternativeTo created a list of web hosting providers that emphasize privacy.
