Innovate or enervate

My first post since March about Amazon's offerings. Elastic Load Balancing and Auto Scaling have been launched in the States and are imminent in Europe.

The day we can move our auction system onto this infrastructure and let it size itself can't be too far away. What a boon it would have been in the server meltdown that followed our BBC One Show appearance.

I noted in passing the other day that Twitter uses Amazon for storing images. I wonder what else the Amazon platform underpins?

Immanent as well as imminent?
