There is an old Chinese saying "to teach apprentices to starve to death,"and the cloud industry's big brother AWS has never been taken lightly, Ali's strength in the Chinese market has caught the attention of AWS CEO Andy Jasy, and the rapid growth of cloud-computing manufacturers such as Ali has determined Amazon to do more technological innovation to keep the market ranking.

"China is the place we see most often," said the chief executive of AWS.

AWS noted that Alibaba cloud has achieved catch-up in some regions, but it is mainly limited to China. Jassy said in an interview with foreign media that Amazon aims to expand the gap with its competitors by focusing on areas such as artificial intelligence and quantum computing.

AWS was officially launched in 2006. According to Amazon's latest financial report, the annual sales volume of AWS is estimated to be about $36 billion, with a year-on-year growth rate of 30% to 39%.

"We used to be optimistic that this might be a real business, but I don't think anyone could have predicted that it would grow rapidly at that time." Jassy said he has been CEO since AWS was founded.

In the past decade, enterprises have moved from internal information systems to the cloud. Jassy said that the cloud computing market still has great growth potential because "we are still in the early stage of Cloud Application in enterprises and public sectors", and "the United States is 12 to 36 months ahead of other countries in adopting cloud computing, and there is great potential in other markets."

Jassy said in an interview with foreign media that AWS has better conditions. "Most customers who study technology infrastructure platforms carefully tell us that they think we are more than two years ahead of anyone else," he said He had also previously said that the loss of the Jedi contract would threaten national security.

Asked if the expansion of Alibaba's cloud business raises similar concerns, he said: "I don't think the growth of any company, including Alibaba, will be related to the national security of the United States.".

"What I want to say is that when we work with customers, we usually see Alibaba and they are thinking about which cloud computing vendor they will use in China," said Jassy "I don't think they have much business in the US or Europe at the moment," he added

Asked about technology trends over the next decade, he said, "relatively few companies will have their own data centers. And those companies with data centers are not going to have large data centers. "

In the areas of focus, he mentioned AI and edge computing, enabling customers to process near data generation. For AI, he judged, "almost all applications will somehow inject machine learning and AI."

On edge computing, he said: "I think there will be billions of devices in our homes, factories, cars, airplanes, ships, oil fields and agriculture - they will be everywhere. Companies and end users want to get all the data that these devices are generating and get more intelligence from it. "

AWS announced a cloud based quantum computing service in early December. "We have invested heavily in quantum computing," Jassy said earlier At the same time, he also believes that the popularization of quantum computing may take several years, but AWS is optimistic about its potential.

With regard to it trends in the 2020's, he said that "great changes have taken place in the past 10 years, but in the next 10 years, even greater changes will take place in this decade.".

Whether IT giants like Amazon can address challenges such as privacy and tax avoidance when the world is heavily scrutinized remains an issue. Lawmakers including 2020 Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren have called for a spin-off of big high-tech companies.

"If the government's decision is backed by the court, then everyone has to follow it," says Jassy "I think it's also important to consider the differences in these companies. Facebook, GoogleAppleMicrosoft, Amazon are all different companies, can not be generalized

"Amazon also accounts for only 1% of global retail, and we have a very small share in the segment," he said. 97% of global IT spending is local and only 3% is in the cloud. What we have is a part of the cloud market. "Jassy pointed out that customers need new products and services, so there is not much motivation or purpose to split these companies.
