Our research into Amazon’s capabilities caused us to note the information in “Amazon Rolls Out High Memory Instances for In-Memory Databases.” Many companies want to munch on Big Data. I would point out that certain US government organization have a healthy appetite for the capability as well.
I noted this statement:
The new High Memory EC2 instances offer a choice of 6, 9 and 12 terabytes of memory, with 18TB and 24TB options to arrive next year.
Phi Beta Iota: Amazon is going to bury IBM, Oracle, and also rans such as Microsoft. Amazon is also already out of date. Like others, they have a legacy investment in data centers and are not going to make the leap to distributed data, mesh networks, and more.
