The advent of precise semiconductor fabrication has ensured that technology has established itself permanently in nearly every aspect of our lives. Whether it's space travel, communication, booking tickets or carrying out transactions, everything can be done digitally. Cloud services are one such phenomenon that allows companies to offload their computing requirements to servers for a fee. One such platform is Amazon's Web Services which allows entities to rent out computing power.

Goldman Sachs' Marquee Web Services Will Introduce New Products On Amazon Web Next Year Confirms Company

In statements made at a press conference today, Goldman Sachs' chief executive officer Mr. David Solomon has stated that the bank will expand its Marquee web services platform next year. This expansion will come in the form of new products, and these additions will run on Amazon Web Services.

The executive was speaking at Amazon's reInvent event today, where AWS announced a brand new Graviton2 processor. This processor succeeds the original Graviton, is built on the 7nm node and features 64 ARM Neoverse N1 cores designed especially for cloud computing platforms.

Goldman Sachs' Marquee services include tools that allow customers to analyze risk, compare prices and use the bank's services for their needs. The tools in Marquee are for institutional investors only, and Goldman's decision to announce new products for the brand and port these services to AWS speaks about the management's confidence in Marquee.

The bank's co-chief information office Marco Argenti previously spent time at AWS as its vice president technology. Goldman's decision to choose AWS as the go-to platform for Marquee will further strengthen Amazon's cloud computing platform against competitors from Google and Microsoft.
