QCon day 3 – Amazon web services

I already use Jungle Disk which is the amazon S3 (simple storage service).

Of great interest to me was the Elastic compute cloud, allowing for fast scalability and setup, with a time, bandwidth and computing power pricing model. The up and coming Simple DB, an object database looked very interesting.
