Amazon Stores Your Data

Once again I'm amazed by the new opportunities oppening up for skilled internet developers. Amazon::

Amazon S3 is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.

Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.
The best is: no setup cost, no minimum fee. For example its less than 1$/month to store 1GB and transfer 4GB !
