    what do you use?

    i like s3 as a CDN, i also like that it eliminates a bunch of hardware issues

    Scalability is a big reason for me... technically *I* don't front the bill for AWS, but using S3 vs. buying all the hardware, etc it was an easy win.

    oh, and i use it for my EC2 user mode FS's. Which doesn't really house much data and I think transferring data between AWS services is free
