Amazon.com is the leading U.S. e-commerce retailer and among the top e-commerce sites globally. Amazon.com also provides Amazon Web Services (AWS), which is the global leader in cloud-based Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platforms. The company's Prime membership platform is a key online retail differentiator, providing customers with free shipping (after an annual fee) along with exclusive media content (music, video, audible books, etc.). The company's Kindle reader and Alexa-based Echo and Dot digital voice assistants are category leaders. Amazon acquired Whole Foods Market in August 2017.
