Where are the big areas that you think will drive cloud activity in the next five to ten years?

I see several. A lot of the autonomous vehicles are going to be using machine learning. Another is that there are billions of devices on the edge in our offices, factories, ships, and fields, that have by definition, relatively little CPU, so the cloud becomes disproportionately important to them.

A more traditional [area] that is being radically reinvented is databases. Over the last few decades, it's been a rough place for enterprises because they've had to contend with the old guard database providers like Oracle -- it's expensive and also, they constantly audit their customers and fine them if they find something -- so customers are moving to open-source database engines like MYSQL, but to get the performance of those open engines out of commercial-grade data bases is really hard, so they asked us to try to solve that. We built Amazon Aurora, which is fully MYSQL and at least as durable and available as commercial databases and one tenth of the cost. It's the fastest growing service in our history.
