Next up for Amazon AWS: the education market. Amazon already controls the Web Service market for research, with Google surrendering this space to Amazon months ago. With the newly announced AWS in Education, Amazon is extending its reach. AWS in Education offers "a set of programs that enable the academic community to easily leverage the benefits of Amazon Web Services for teaching and research. With AWS in Education, educators, academic researchers, and students worldwide can obtain free usage credits to tap into the on-demand infrastructure of Amazon Web Services to teach advanced courses, tackle research endeavors and explore new projects – tasks that previously would have required expensive investments in infrastructure." Essentially, hook them now on Web Services for a drastically reduced price, cash out when they choose Amazon for Web Servers in their professional life.
