Amazon and Netflix

Amazon may have their own service that seems to compete with Netflix but their AWS service exposes something more fundamental. When it comes to video delivery, the product isn’t the technology, it is the access and the experience. Rather, the concrete definition of a technology company is shown to be more elusive than at first realized. This is made more clear in the news that Netflix is closing their last in-house data center. The video streaming business is about access and experience. Meanwhile, Amazon’s infrastructure business continues to add to the practice of IT where use of technology may evolve into the proper utilization of a Google Chromebook.
