Amazon to open Tel Aviv office will open an office in Tel Aviv to support its cloud computing offering called Amazon Web Services, the company’s chief technology officer said Oct. 15.

The office is expected to begin operating at the start of 2014 and support companies from startups to large organizations as they move to cloud computing services offered by Amazon.

Companies in Israel were among the first to turn to cloud computing when AWS was established in 2006, chief technology officer Werner Vogels said at a news conference.

AWS, which Vogels said is the market leader in cloud computing, rents remote computing and storage to other companies, providing more than 30 different services. —
