AWS Outposts bring native AWS services, infrastructure, and operating models to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility.

"We are first in the world to launch Mobile Edge Compute - deeply integrating Verizon's 5G Edge platform with Wavelength to allow developers to build new categories of applications and network cloud experiences built-in ways we can't even imagine yet", said Hans Vestberg, CEO and Chairman of Verizon.

Once technology reaches commercial viability AWS will work with partners to trial those solutions with customers.

. Still, some customers have certain workloads that will likely need to remain on-premises for several years, such as applications that are latency-sensitive and need to be in close proximity to on-premises assets. "The best way to think of quantum computing is as an accelerator for specific workloads".

Amazon Fraud Detector provides a fully managed service for detecting potential online identity and payment fraud in real time, based on the same technology used by Amazon's consumer business - with no machine learning experience required. With the integration of Quantum principles, building and developing current computers to advanced for solving hard problems isn't easy.

Amazon Quantum Solutions Lab is a program that connects customers with quantum computing experts from Amazon and its technology and consulting partners to develop internal expertise aimed at identifying practical uses of quantum computing, and accelerating the development of quantum applications with meaningful impact.
