Jay Finally! Pricing? Reserved Instances? :-)


Now there are just two more "missing links" to build massively scalable webapps with minimal setup and maintenance effort.

we need:
a) the read replica feature (already announced in this blog post)
b) CDN-like hosting of dynamic content

let me explain b) a bit:
you offer a very scalable hosting for static content via S3, which is even more scalable via your CDN features.

what i am dreaming of is a "S3 like offer" for dynamic content.
so instead of launching and configuring a EC2 instance, we'd love to fire up a "php-S3" or a "python-S3" or whatever language it may be.

This would be in line with RDS (offer on "application level" instead of "server level" and take away the ugly server setup and administration from developers and startups).

"php5-fpm via nginx on S3" would be cool! ;-)


Jay- this sounds like MySQL Multi-Master - if so good choice!


Unfortunately Amazon still completely fails to use this blog as a two way street and instead just posts press releases which are "styled" as blog posts. :-/

Cool companies REPLY to blog comments!

Hi Josh -- I reply to about 90% of the comments offline, and usually within an hour or two. Leave me an email address and I will get back to you ASAP.


thanks for replying in here and pointing out that you usually reply to comments offline. Thats good, but I don't really get the rationale behind it. This is a blog after all... The idea of a blog is to do these things in public, so that other readers benefit from this discussion.

Either you have something to say which would be useful for other users, too (and which i'd post here or elsewhere anyway) or your only answer would be "We don't comment on future features and have no release date yet" in which case it wouldn't be worth the effort to answer offline.

Josh, point taken and I'll try to do a better job of conducting a discussion within the comments.

There are two other types of replies that I can't post in public:

"That's a great idea, we're giving it some thought, can I introduce you to the product team so that they can learn more about your needs?"

"That's a great idea, we have something in private beta now, let me see if I can get you NDA'ed so that we can tell you more!"



oh snap! I missed those two possibilities - my fault!
Glad to see that Amazon really takes this user feedback serious!
Even these comments are moderated, they were posted anyway.
Guess we'll send you an email in the next couple of days.

Thanks again!

I know I am a bit late to this posting, but we are currently thinking of migrating to a hybrid MySQL Cluster approach in a HA scenario. I have read elsewhere that there is a 1TB limit for storage per instance - given various scaling options is there a limit on transaction throughput we still need to worry about (we are running at 1K/sec range right now - but always expanding)?
