What just happened? Locations of Amazon's hidden data centers have been put on full display by Wikileaks. Being the only cloud provider authorized to store classified government data, Amazon has been very careful of not disclosing where or how exactly it runs its operations. As the largest provider of cloud services, Amazon currently operates around 34 percent of the world's cloud infrastructure.
