Facebook is one of the biggest tech company which is not using AWS or Azure. No cloud for that matter is being used by Facebook to store its data. Facebook is running their own infrastructure to meet their needs, as Facebook had a very large number of users at a point of time when AWS was developing back in 2009. Meanwhile, Azure came to life in 2010.
And that’s why Facebook opts to construct their own infrastructure rather than spending millions on a cloud service like AWS, or Azure to store their information. So, that is the reason why Facebook doesn’t use AWS or Azure, or any cloud services.
