I have been bad at following blogs recently. Today, I revisited some of my favorite ones and saw the reference to Amazon‘s upcoming ‘Dynamo’ service in Werner‘s blog. This is very very interesting. I guess it’s going to be a service on the cloud for application state management. I wonder whether they are going to have some synchronization/versioning story so as to enable offline access.
And then, the Flexible Payment Service.
We knew already that Amazon was becoming a Web platform company so I am not surprised with these services. Very cool.
Update: For those not following the comments on my blog, Werner updated his blog entry to clarify that it’s just a write up of an internal service. It’d been cool to offer distributed application state management (not just data storage like S3) as a service, though :-) I am looking forward to the paper.
