Scorecard Highlights:

Organizations using Amazon EC2 are typically broken down in the following percentages:

  • 38% use Small instances
  • 19% use Medium
  • 15% use XLarge
  • The very large (which include 2XLarge, 4XLarge and 8XLarge),  and the very small (Micro) account for only  27% collectively.

 

Among our customers:

  • 94% use Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3)
  • 66% use Amazon’s Simple Notification Service (SNS) for push messaging
  • 41% use Amazon’s Relational Database Service (RDS) to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud.

 

Around three-quarters of customers run Linux instances, with the remaining using Windows. However Windows systems accounted for 31% of all computing hours, and more money is typically spent on Windows instances.
