Heavy experiments with Amazon
Scott Penberthy of online video provider Heavy has an interesting blog post about trying to replace Rackspace and Akamai with Amazon web services — substituting S3 for Rackspace SAN storage, and direct delivery out of S3 for Akamai CDN services. Not surprisingly, the S3 performance fell well below Akamai performance, but they managed to achieve significant storage cost savings.
