Grow Your Business with Amazon S3

A March 9 2010 report states that Amazon S3 had over 102 billion objects

A March 9 2010 report states that Amazon S3 had over 102 billion objects. I was searching on the Internet, trying to find the most recent report (Aug 2010). I didn’t find what I was looking for. However, I found reports on Amazon S3 data for different time spots from April 07 all the way to March 10, which will be good enough to see a trend and extrapolating to August 2010.


After I put the data in to Excel and plot it out.  A nice trend line shows. The red line is an exponential trend and the green line is a polynomial trend. From the trends, it is fair to say Amazon S3 now has over 130 billion objects and could be as high as 160 billion objects.





Congratulations to Amazon!

Who doesn’t want to see business grow in exponential terms?

For the cloud storage observers, what could be more convincing than seeing a trend line from Amazon S3 object counts?
