About the technology

AWS is known as a cloud computing platform. Cloud computing, or the cloud, is a metaphor for supply and consumption of IT resources. The IT resources in the cloud aren’t directly visible to the user; there are layers of abstraction in between.

Andreas Wittig and Michael Wittig are software engineers and consultants focused on AWS and web development. They migrated the first bank in Germany to AWS along with other heavily regulated businesses with legacy applications.
