Buddy Buddy with the Big Clouds
Wow, it's been over a year since I first tripped onto the AWS Platform aimed towards the Star Developers among us. Although I could understand what was what and why, it was just too complicated to remember all of it. Now, 1 1/2 years later, S3 with Cloud Front and now Cloud Buddy, you're making all my days better now. Seamless and almost cost-free, it's the best kept secret on the internet. Frank Kern hasn't blogged about it yet...might want to give him a jingle..that will make them all come running. No, don't do that!

As the name states, it's truly a buddy!
I started my user experience with cloudbuddy a couple of weeks back and start feeling to be it a real buddy. cloudbuddy offers me various friendly options like 1. have multiple s3 accounts, 2. share files / folders as url and templates, 3. plugin for my outlook and other ms office tools, 4. much more. I also learn from the website that it has APIs, so need to check on that. The much acclaimed feature would be the plugins that are really cool to work with.
