Here’s an interesting peek behind the scenes at Amazon Web Services:
Scale is perhaps the most important thing, and no one needs to teach an online retailer like Amazon anything about that. With Amazon, there is very little talk of public cloud, and that is because Amazon believes that, by its nature, cloud means it cannot be private. Over the long haul, Amazon believes the massive scale of the public cloud will mean that very few organizations will run their own datacenters.
Interesting throughout. (H/T to Tim for bringing it to my attention)
