    Thats a very interesting point of view you have there and I think you may be right. Its happened to many giants before – just when they looked invincible they tripped up, or sometimes just got left behind all of a sudden as the game was changed (think Nokia, Microsoft). I also read a piece shortly before i came across your site http://news.yahoo.com/amazon-getting-too-big-britches-160025093.html and it talks about Amazon entering the B2B business, and that it perhaps may be a step too far. Its never a good idea to have to have your hands in too many pies!

    Good post Krish, there is plenty of room for PaaS or management companies to commoditise lower level services and AWS isn’t immune to them….

    We see that the emergence of Openstack and Cloudstack started empowering small and medium cloud service providers to provide Amazon like services. They can migrate their existing customers to cloud and keep them intact with their local support. Local small and medium cloud service providers have edge over Amazon in the places where Amazon do not have their data center. Open source private cloud platforms and PaaS can logically disrupt AWS. Innovation, Coverage and Support are the key factors and Amazon’s of the world should not be complacent with what they have.

    I’d agree with the PaaS comment, developers ultimately don’t want to care about where to run their apps, they care about the middleware and data services, IaaS eventually is just commodity like internet, it should just work.
