This question by Amazon Retail teams gave birth to AWS and the Cloud as we know it – sorry, Sand Hill Road, you missed this one big. Our teams decided to explore how the Cloud has delivered for Amazon on its marquee event – primeday – for over 8+ years. As distributed systems aficionados – the insights blew us away! Take a look – you won’t find jargon, only refreshing CS insights; it’s how systems must be built and scaled! And once done, ask yourself the same question – what undifferentiated [data] heavy lifting can you delegate? P.S. – if the answer is the same as Amazon’s in 2006, you are more than a decade behind!
