Disney relies on AWS as its preferred public cloud infrastructure provider to support the growth of Disney+, which has rapidly expanded to 59 countries across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America and surpassed 100 million only 16 months after its launch in November 2019. Disney+ is expanding its use of AWS’s industry-leading services to include more than 50 technologies, such as machine learning, database, storage, content delivery, serverless, and analytics.
Commenting on the cooperation between Disney and AWS, Joe Inzerillo, executive VP & CTO, direct-to-consumer, The Walt Disney Company, said: “Disney+ has completely reinvented what’s possible in content delivery by challenging convention and using cloud technology to build a streaming product from scratch that had never been launched and marketed before on such a global scale.
“AWS has been our preferred cloud provider for years, and its proven global infrastructure and expansive suite of services has contributed meaningfully to the incredible success of Disney+”.
Carla Stratfold, VP of AWS global and strategic accounts at Amazon Web Services, added: “Disney+ brings beloved characters and timeless stories to a global audience through world-class direct-to-consumer video services.
“Only AWS’s proven global infrastructure and unparalleled set of capabilities deliver the reliability, scalability, and breadth of functionality to power one of the world’s most exciting streaming services and its expansion around the world. We look forward to continuing to provide comprehensive cloud capabilities and expertise to The Walt Disney Company to help them reinvent streaming entertainment for Disney fans globally”.
