Amazon for developers

Amazon Web Services and Amazon Business Solutions. They offer the following infrastructure services for developers:

  • EC2=Elastic Compute Cloud (Computing/processing in a cloud)
  • S3 = Storage in a cloud
  • SQS=Simple Queue Service (Messaging between different parts of applications)
  • SDB=Simple Database (Database in a cloud)
  • Flexible Payment Service (Money processing. They don’t call it FPS for some reason🙂 )

Above those services they offer Dev Pay which allows developers to put their own business model over the infrastructure.
Very interesting business model for Amazon.
