It’s been a
pretty exciting damn good day for Tropist Media. We finished up some tests this morning and determined that Amazon is a viable host for our media content. This means our bandwidth and storage expenses will be significantly lower than we expected. We were thinking we’d be forking over somewhere between 3 and 5 dollars per gigabyte to Akamai or Limelight; needless to say, we’re thrilled that Amazon charges only 20 cents a gigabyte for use of their Simple Storage Service (S3). Woohoo.
