Amazon starts our day again, with two new announcements. First, the Elastic File System is now “production ready” in three regions. Also, SNS Messages can now deliver SMS messages worldwide. Thankfully, Twilio was able to have their IPO just before this news, otherwise that could have been a much different outcome. At Ayende @ Rahien we get another post on the database internals, this one focused on managing concurrency. They use my favorite image for multithreaded programming, which also gives me a reason to post that image again. Johanna Rothman continues her Product Owners and Learning series, which is again another great read.
