Like most people lately (I suspect) I've been using Amazon and FleaBay more than usual simply because I can get the bits I want reasonably quickly, and don't have to meet infected people ... Laugh | :laugh:

And I've noticed that since the start of the pandemic, their backend systems have been getting worse and worse - most of the time now I get a "we're going to deliver your order today!" email about 6 or 8 hours after the goods arrived on my doorstep. You can sort of understand this, volume is way up, and systems are getting clogged.

And that means one of two things:
1) AWS doesn't expand automatically / gracefully to meet need / volume levels
Or
2) Amazon don't use their own cloud offering.

Neither of these exactly fills me with desire to use AWS: either it doesn't actually do what they say, it costs way too much to expand it to fit the need, or they don't trust it enough to use it ...

Anyone here from Amazon and have an idea which it is? Big Grin | :-D
