Amazon: We’re a Technology Company
Jassey expects demand for cloud services to grow, particularly now with the economy in trouble. “It eliminates up-front capital and lets you move faster and get to market quicker,” he said. For instance, when companies get ready to launch a new online service, they typically invest in new computer and storage capacity. “You have to guess, and it rarely turns out to be what you projected,” he said. In other words, you either buy more than you need or scramble to meet unexpected demand. But Amazon and other cloud service providers charge only for what’s used and you can scale computing resources as needed.

Tech buyers are taking a hard look at such cloud services as Amazon’s EC2, which allows businesses to scale capacity dynamically by uploading virtual machines to Amazon’s servers. But other less glitzy areas are getting traction, too.
Self-storage site stirs flood fears
Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, IN
