  1. Good one and nice job with the Xacti :). The highlight for me was Jeff articulating the fact that their Web Services business stems from their own internal need for a set of API’s to mitigate the “fine grain coordination” between their network and applications groups!

  3. I don’t think Jeff answered the question regarding Wall Street – What people want to know is if Wall Street has recognized this technology edge and new market and factored that into the pricing of AMZN stock –

  4. i seen video i think Jeff answered the question regarding Wall Street. They are bridging the gap between on demand infrastructure and test lab automation. People often wonder about this aspect of Amazon’s web services strategy

  5. Nice interview.

    Here are my thoughts as a consultant trying to leverage Amazon into a B2C/B2B client….I don’t think Amazon has done a good job of marketing, and promoting these new technology services. As Jeff put it, some of this stuff is years old. There might be companies using it, but it’s still not clear to me how I can leverage it and what the details are.

    They also don’t do a good job of providing help. If you send Amazon an email (which seems to be the only way to communicate with them, and get more information on the services), you get a reply from someone overseas in 2-3 days. …. and of course, the reply is poor, so you have to play 20 emails because they dont really understand english.

    Again, my point is that Amazon had good technoologies, they can be a bigger force, but I think they are still playing around.

  6. Om, that last comment from Jim on 10/13/08 raises a fascinating question: what is Amazon doing to improve its marketing of AWS? This is a very deserving topic. Have you written on this topic in recent months? I’d love to hear from anyone who has.

    thanks,
