Amazon has a thriving technical centre in Cape Town. In 2005 Amazon Web Services (AWS) opened a Development Centre in Cape Town. In 2006 the Cape Town team launched Amazon EC2. In 2012, Amazon started building an AWS Support group based in Cape Town. EC2 forms part of Amazon Web Services (AWS), which provide developers with access to in-the-cloud infrastructure services based on Amazon's own back-end technology platform. The Cape Town based Development Centre plays a key role in building and running the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), the web service that pioneered cloud computing.
