Posted on March 16, 2006

Amazon.com has debuted an online storage service called A3. The service a pay for what you use pricing model. You pay $0.15 per GB-Month of storage used and $0.20 per GB of data transferred. Here are some of the features of A3. Several blogs are saying this means Amazon.com is no longer just a web retailer That argument is clearly true as these services are targeted at online businesses, such as publishers, and clearly falls in the business-to-business arena. Colin Faulkingham points out S3's BitTorrent support. Amazon is still a retailer but they have an excellent team of developers that will help them create digital offerings and move rapidly into digital media downloads.
