Public cloud giant Amazon Web Services Inc. has bagged itself yet another marquee customer: Comcast Cable, the flagship business subsidiary of cable television provider Comcast Corp. Comcast isn’t exactly a new customer for Amazon, but in its announcement today the company said it chose AWS as its “preferred public cloud infrastructure provider,” which means it’ll be using more of its services. Comcast said it’s planning to expand its use of the AWS cloud by migrating more workloads to the platform and building new software applications on its infrastructure.

This setup has run in many customer production environments over the years. Let’s consider one of those customers — Jim. He was the first to deploy the integrated solution in his data center.
