From Spencer Reiss’ “Cloud Computing. Available at Amazon.com Today” (Wired: 21 April 2008):
Almost a third of [Amazon]’s total number of sales last year were made by people selling their stuff through the Amazon machine. The company calls them seller-customers, and there are 1.3 million of them.
Log in to Amazon’s gateway today and more than 100 separate services leap into action, crunching data, comparing alternatives, and constructing a totally customized page (all in about 200 milliseconds).
Developers get a cheap, instant, essentially limitless computing cloud.
