Amazon and Facebook are set to launch a new “cloud” computing platform in the near future, with the US tech giant set to release a beta version of the platform this week.
Amazon and Facebook will debut the Cloud Platforms for Business beta on Thursday, according to The Information.
The beta will allow companies to test their cloud services on a larger scale.
The platform will be open to anyone with a web browser and will have a few features that will be available only to “customers and partners.”
The beta will have three tiers:Business and Enterprise customers will be able to access a handful of services including Dropbox, Amazon Web Services, ElasticSearch and AWS Elastic Compute Cloud, according a blog post from Amazon.
This tier will also have a subscription model that will give users access to all the products.
The Enterprise customers, meanwhile, will have access to a limited number of AWS Cloud services, such as DynamoDB and DynamoDB Replica.
The service, which is scheduled to launch this week, will offer customers a variety of services for hosting, computing, and analytics.
Cloud Platform for Business will allow them to store data and services in Amazon Cloud, but Amazon has not disclosed the size of the service.
Amazon says Cloud Platform will be powered by the Elastic Compose platform, which has a much smaller footprint than Amazon’s own Elastic Comput Engine.
Amazon’s Cloud Platform was launched in January.
The company also released a “new service” called “Cluster” that will let companies control the data that goes through their cloud.
Cluster is set to have many of the same features that Amazon’s existing Cloud Platform offers, including the ability to host multiple applications at once, and a database for analytics and analytics-related data, according The Information, citing a company statement.
The new service will be free for users to use, and Amazon will give customers access to it for 30 days.
