Amazon is at times the very definition of disruptive, with ventures ranging from being the world's biggest bookseller to providing data center resources as a service. And Jeff Bezos is very much the face of disruption.

But his Seattle-based company's greatest disruption is providing the storage and compute capacity developed for delivering Amazon's services to anyone on an on-demand basis for short-term or long-term delivery of their own services. That Amazon infrastructure service is so widespread that it doesn't matter whether a business is an Amazon customer or not.
