What company powers Amazon's cloud services? Guess who makes the servers?
Some company located in Redmond, WA. I have never heard of them....MSFT already dominates Cloud and will monopolize it because either they host or they sell the servers. Amazon Cloud runs on SQL servers.
here some actual info in case you want to know something about amazon ec2.
"When it launched in August 2006, the EC2 service offered Linux and later Sun Microsystems' OpenSolaris and Solaris Express Community Edition. In October 2008, EC2 added the Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 operating systems to the list of available operating systems. In November 2012, Amazon officially supports running FreeBSD in EC2. In March 2011, NetBSD AMIs became available.
Amazon Linux AMI
Amazon has their own Linux distro based on Fedora/RHEL that they have as a low cost offering.
