  5. 5. NY Times use of EC2 and S3 <ul><li>11 million articles from 1851-1922 </li></ul><ul><li>4TB of scanned image data </li></ul><ul><li>Converted to PDFs in 24 hours using a supercomputer </li></ul><ul><li>Served to the public from Amazon S3 </li></ul><ul><li>All provisioned instantly with a credit card </li></ul>“ I then began some rough calculations and determined that if I used only four machines, it could take some time to generate all 11 million article PDFs. But thanks to the swell people at Amazon, I got access to a few more machines and churned through all 11 million articles in just under 24 hours using 100 EC2 instances, and generated another 1.5TB of data to store in S3. (In fact, it work so well that we ran it twice, since after we were done we noticed an error in the PDFs.)” http://open.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/11/01/self-service-prorated-super-computing-fun/
