# Amazon Web Services
> Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services that make up the on-demand computing platform offered by Amazon.com. – [Source](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Web_Services)
## Why is it whitelisted?
To not break the web. Many of the Amazon Web Services include [storage and content delivery networks](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Web_Services#Content_delivery).
## Decentralised alternatives
Amazon S3 is interoperable. The Amazon S3 API is implemented by competing providers, including several free and open implementations
* [Skylable](http://www.skylable.com) (née LibreS3)
* [Minio](https://www.minio.io)
* [Riak CS](https://github.com/basho/riak_cs)
## Block rule
