Amazon got a lot of press recently because the first slate of commercial backup services powered by Amazon's S3 storage launched. We believe this will become really interesting once somebody offers a one-click Bittorrent solution. Two months ago Colin Faulkingham wrote about the fact that S3 already supports Bittorrent seeding out of the box. Combine that with Amazon's unbeatable pricing structure ($0.15 per GB-Month of storage used and $0.20 per GB of data transferred), and you got yourself a nice Prodigem competitor.
