Userscripts and S3 - How the nice people over at Userscripts saved a bundle by going with S3 instead of hosting their own servers.

This is very interesting, with EC2 and
S3 Amazon is really making a big splash in the large scale website hosting business. I have a few different servers, spread over the face of the planet, and for what I need, the Virtual Private Servers from Quantact and a dedicated server from AMKH work really well. However, I can see a time where I would need a bigger cluster of servers, and moving from a single dedicated server to a bunch of servers would be quite a big transition. EC2 and
S3 sound like a great alternative.

I'll let you know what happens, my gentle readers.
