Amazon S3 – the new Aspirin
As more and more people now move their production apps on Amazon S3, we are getting emails from CEOs and CTOs about their success and how Amazon S3 helped them sleep better at night. Last week I blogged about live-blogging backed by Amazon S3 and their 2-hour-$10-scaling app. This week its Pictogame. As Louis Choquel, President of zSlide (of Podmailing fame) puts it in his own words:
– with S3 we could sleep better, spend totally cool week-ends watching our Digg score climb in total serenity.– without S3 we would have spent much more money but slept badly anyhow, had nightmares, and actually seen our server crashed, probably at the worst time of night as these things usually do.
