AWS Statistics: Amazon’s Real Secret

We spotted this today:

“AWS grossed $7.9 billion in revenues last year, up 70 percent from 2014, a growth rate four times as fast as the retail operations. AWS could start to become even more of a revenue driver, too. Morgan Stanley estimates that revenues will grow to $12 billion this year and $16 billion in 2017.

What’s more, AWS has arguably become Amazon’s new profit engine. Although the unit constitutes only 7 percent of Amazon’s overall revenues, its $1.9 billion in operating profit isn’t far off the $2.8 billion operating profit of the entire $99 billion retail business. No wonder that Ben Schachter, an analyst at Macquarie Securities, last year valued AWS at $75 billion, almost half as much as the rest of Amazon’s business.”

Instagram Statistics: 75 Percent of Advertisers Are Outside The U.S.

We spotted this stat today:

“Instagram announced today that it has 200,000 monthly active advertisers.

To compare, Facebook said a year go that it had more than 2 million active advertisers, while Twitter says it has 140,000 130,000. Probably the most impressive thing about the Instagram number is the fact that the Facebook-owned photo-sharing service only had a few hundred advertisers back in June.

Much of that growth has been international — Instagram’s ad program expanded globally five months ago, and James Quarles, Instagram’s head of business and brand development, told me that 75 percent of advertisers are outside the United States.”
