Amazon Web Services can help you rapidly deploy and scale your Microsoft SharePoint environment to help you collaborate more efficiently and cost-effectively.  You can quickly deploy a custom web application or scale up to a global collaboration site and optimize costs with a pay-as-you-go approach. Customers find significant TCO savings by running SharePoint on Amazon Web Services over an on-premises solution.
