Washington, 1 May (ONA) --- Tech giants Amazon, Microsoft, and Alphabet have seen robust sales in their cloud computing divisions, signaling a surge in corporate spending fueled by artificial intelligence (AI) initiatives.

Amazon's AWS reported a 17% growth in Q1, surpassing Wall Street's expectations and achieving a $100 billion annual run-rate.

Microsoft's Azure and Google Cloud also exceeded projections with growth rates of 31% and 28% respectively.

Analysts attribute this growth to both AI investments and an overall acceleration in cloud spending by businesses, marking a significant rebound from cost-cutting measures implemented during the pandemic.

Analysts see a continuous migration of workloads to cloud platforms, favoring major players with extensive infrastructure and service offerings, known as hyperscalers.

This trend underscores the pivotal role of AI in driving growth and consolidation within the cloud computing market.
