A lot has been going on in the world of Cloud Storage in the last 24 hours ! Amazon have introduced a new storage option for Amazon S3 called Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS) that enables customers to reduce their costs by storing non-critical, reproducible data at lower levels of redundancy than the standard storage of Amazon S3. We’ll be adding the ability to take advantage of RRS into our S3 solution in the next couple of weeks and will provide more details when this is done.
It seems that Google is also going to have a Google Storage solution similar to Amazon S3. Google is positioning this as a direct competitor with Amazon’s S3 cloud storage and the service will be called Google Storage for Developers, or ‘GS’. We look forward to this launch. We already support a very fully-featured version of Google Docs and we will also add support for this GS cloud as soon as it is available.by
