Amazon has revealed some amazing statistics about their cloud computing platform.
The company said that more than 905 billion objects are currently hosted on their S3 platform.
And they serve 650,000 requests per second on routine. The number gets very high during high load scenarios.
The S3 object count continued to grow at a rapid clip even after we added object expiration and multi-object deletion at the end of the year. Every day, well over a billion objects are added via the S3 APIs, AWS Import/Export, the AWS Storage Gateway, all sorts of backup tools, and through Direct Connect pipes.
