Next Steps

Reinvent how you work with IT by signing up for the AWS Free Tier, which enables you to gain hands-on experience with a broad selection of AWS products and services. Within the AWS Free Tier, you can test workloads and run applications to learn more and build the right solution for your organization. You can also contact AWS Sales and Business Development.

By signing up for AWS, you have access to Amazon’s cloud computing services. Note: The sign-up process requires a credit card, which will not be charged until you start using services. There are no long-term commitments and you can stop using AWS at any time.
