AWS CEO Jassy On The JEDI Cloud Contract, Trump's Amazon Comments And AWS Profits
Amazon Web Services CEO Andy Jassy made a rare media appearance last week when the leader of Amazon's cloud division took to CNBC to talk politics, and the future of Amazon's cloud business.
The interview -- which comes as Amazon's cloud competitors, Google and Microsoft, took to their respective stages over the past two weeks to share the progress at the Microsoft Build and Google I/O developer conferences -- highlighted not only how new trends like AI and customized data center infrastructure will help grow the cloud. Jassy also fielded hot-button questions, such as how AWS sees the sought-after JEDI cloud contract playing out, and what he makes of President Trump's criticism of Amazon.
