(Reuters) – The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated cloud adoption by companies by several years, Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN)'s cloud head Andy Jassy said on Tuesday.

Jassy, who leads Amazon Web Services (AWS), made the remarks at the company's re:Invent conference, a marketing event for its cloud services.

Among several announcements, AWS launched a new chip called Trainium at the event, taking aim at Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) Corp's core business of offering powerful chips to train machine learning algorithms.

The chip will complement Amazon's Inferentia computing chip, which analyses incoming data from platforms like Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.
