First, it’s useful to provide the context that the way we think about what Amazon.com is, the way we think about it at the highest levels of the Company, is that we have three macro and distinct businesses: our Consumer/Retail business, our Seller business, and our Developer business.
What you want is to be able to focus on these hard things that differentiate your business.
Heavy lifting comes into play whenever you are dealing with highly distributed software delivered over the web. Examples: Business groups being asked to forecast their server requirements out 4 quarters. Deploying website feature changes. Multiple groups must sign-off, slowing things down; and almost any group can break the deployment. Backup/recovery: putting data on tape in case storage fails, making sure it can be recovered from tape O/S upgrades: keeping up with security patches and other upgrades 95% of the problem traffic I receive is actually caused by some other dependent application run by someone else. High performance access to real-time data: thousands of attributes for hundreds of millions of items read tens of thousands of times a second taking under ten milliseconds with total reliability -- all the while supporting massive real-time data changes such as live stock levels. Scale: the system was easy at 100 customers, but then we had to rebuild it to get to 10,000. Now we need to do it all over again to get to 1M. Rinse and repeat. Can we survive a complete loss of a data center? Is all our data backed up flawlessly? But can we also access any piece we want, instantaneously? Why do I pay a hosting company for capacity each month that ends up going unused? And why does it take so long to adjust my capacity up or down as my needs change? At Amazon.com, we like to refer to all this heavy lifting as…
