amazon logoAmazon Web Services is entering into more contracts aimed at helping federal agencies’ shift to cloud computing services with more than 300 U.S. government customers now using its cloud-based offerings, GCN.com reported Monday.

The article said the company has been slowly building its reputation as a government provider, securing FedRAMP approval last month for a cloud platform in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services.

The Seattle, Wa.-based company also  won a 10-year, $600 million contract in March to provide cloud computing services to the Central Intelligence Agency.

In a September 2012 report, Netcraft said the number of AWS’s web-facing servers grew by one-third to 158,000 over the past eight months.

The Internet research firm cited Northern Virginia as a large market for Elastic Compute Cloud, an Amazon product intended to provide users with virtual infrastructure on demand.

AWS launched its GovCloud platform in 2011 for sensitive applications that might require compliance with federal security regulations.
