My rsync appeared to be running at 20+ Mbps to S3 last night...

Nice idea of future! :)


Btw as side question - I heard transfer rates from S3 are capped badly.
Something like 5-10Mbps. Is that true? Anyone of you ever came across such
cap?

Sometimes, the box just won't come back to life and you need somewhere
to stuff the data. *grin*

How about a vending machine, where you insert a hard drive, swipe your
card,
and it either gets vaulted to S3 or an EC2 intance is spawned on the
cloud, and the data on the drive becomes the instance's boot media and
gets streamed to the instance storage over a 10-gigabit connection
from the vending machine,  until all the data's uploaded.

That solves the problem of end users getting their data to the hosting
provider quickly, with no need to stress out their low-speed WAN.
