What Garfinkel refers to as "long term availability" (aka SLA's) are the #1 problem with S3 at the moment. Software can work around individual applications' quirks and anything can be done in that area given enough ingenuity and elbow grease, but legal incompatibility (or, perhaps even worse in this case, legal unknowns) can either be ignored, or bring plans to a screeching halt. Neither option is at all positive.


Garfinkel mentions bandwidth issues. I'm thinking of using both EC2 and S3 for video services in europe, where low bandwidth means painful playback. Is there only one large datacenter in the US or is it a world-wide distributed system?
