U.S. antitrust enforcer advancing probe into Amazon’s cloud unit -Bloomberg News

– The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is advancing an antitrust probe into Amazon.com Inc’s cloud computing business, Bloomberg Information said on Wednesday, citing other people accustomed to the problem.

FTC officials have contacted firms in the earlier few months to assemble details about competition problems related to Amazon Internet Services And Products (AWS), in line with the record which cited unnamed people aware of the matter.

The probe was once undertaken as a part of an investigation all started in the course of the Trump administration, which kicked off investigations into the 4 tech giants.

Amazon did not in an instant reply to Reuters’ requests for remark.

“The FTC doesn’t ensure the existence of or comment on investigations,” said agency spokeswoman Betsy Lordan.
