Phi Beta Iota: Amazon is brilliant at getting others to pay their development bill. Netflix relied on Amazon’s infrastruture, once Amazon had it figured out they created their own version of Netflix, raised prices on Netflix to drive them out, and are now busy burying Netflix because they have a lower cost point. Amazon is not going to make the same mistakes Google made. DoD should be modifying all of its contracts with Amazon to provide protection for its existing vendors utilizing Amazon infrastructure, or they are going to find themselves with decapitated vendors and Amazon standing by with a rectal grin as the only cloud in town, take it or leave it. Ditto CIA, DHS, local municipalities, Waze, etcetera.
