Amazon S3: Integrate for fun, profit & epic speed boosts

The benefits of using Amazon S3 to store static resources are already well documented. It’s almost a no-brainer if you are building an app that hosts a lot of static files.

We just converted an app that we’re working on to use S3 for all user uploads. It not only sped up our development time but it also basically eliminated the need to worry about file-server scaling in our prototyping stage. And we may not need to worry about it for quite a while after that.
