AWS Service Categories are used to organize AWS Services. AWS has continually modified their list of AWS Service Categories. Some major examples include:

  • At one point there was an AWS Service called “Machine Learning”, but now there is an entire AWS Service Category called Machine Learning.
  • The Game Tech category was once called Game Development
  • The Security and Identity category has been renamed Security, Identity & Compliance.
  • The Containers category was added, and took some services from the Compute category.

The list below includes current and legacy AWS Service Categories.
