Amazon.com Amazon Web Services Store: Amazon S3: Huh. Neat.
Amazon S3 is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.
Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web.
Pay only for what you use. There is no minimum fee, and no start-up cost. $0.15 per GB-Month of storage used. $0.20 per GB of data transferred.
My company has 30GB worth of data to back up. If I transfer this off-site once per week, I would store 30GB and move 120GB. That’s $4.50 in storage and $24 in transfer. So, $30 for off-site back up. Not bad, for that amount of data.
How long before scads of interface widgets come out for all sorts of different platforms?
