An interesting overview of the Amazon technology platform

Posted on ACM Queue is an excellent interview by Jim Gray with Werner Vogels - Amazon's CTO.

In it, he gives a great high-level overview of the complexities of developing at such a large scale and how Amazon addresses these challenges.

A great read and very informative on the issues of large-scale application and SOA development.

No excuse now, really, is there?
