Amazon.com The OverLooked Giant - S3 Makes Backups Cheap

posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 10/07/2006 06:00:00 AM
It seems no one is paying attention to Amazon.com, Inc. (Nasdaq AMZN) while everyone is talking about Google (Nasdaq GOOG) and eBay Inc. (Nasdaq EBAY). Jeremy Zawodny who works for Yahoo has a great article about how he replaced his home backup server with Amazon S3 storage. Amazon S3 is providing cheap utility computing - bandwith is $.20/GB and storage is $.15/GB per month. Jeremy is saving over $500 by switching. Maybe Amazon.com ought to get more credit for innovating. I wrote about Amazon's other service Elastic Computing Cloud earlier and I think it's a great service like S3.
