Amazon S3 Hosts 82 Billion Objects
Amazon CTO Werner Vogels has posted a chart (displayed below) of Amazon S3 storage usage over the past three years. The latest number for Q3 2009 is 82 billion objects inside of S3. Pretty amazing growth considering that the service was barely used in 2006. Early 2007 shows 2-3 billion objects.
So many startups I talk to are using Amazon’s cloud computing services in some fashion. For example, Twitter uses S3 for icon storage. We use S3 for storage on all of our projects including all static images and files on CenterNetworks.
