Google Cloud Search - First-Hand Review and Analysis | Search Technologies
In 2002, Google entered the enterprise search space with the introduction of the Google Search Appliance (GSA) - a rack-mounted device that provided document indexing and search functionality. Over time, the GSA gained popularity thanks to a number of powerful features:
Simple setup of a web crawler to index content from an enterprise’s internal websites 
Out-of-the box user interface (UI) to quickly give users access to search 
Connectors to index richer metadata structures and ACLs (Access Control Lists) from a variety of content management systems
Integration with an organization’s authentication systems and leverage of the indexed ACLs to display only the search results that users are allowed to view
As newer technology trends and features were introduced to the market, competitors of the GSA’s search solution started to attract more users. Here are some trends we have spotted over the past few years:
As the migration to the cloud took a strong hold in the enterprise IT, the GSA’s deployment inside an enterprise data center and its lack of auto-scaling capabilities made it less flexible compared to other search solutions.
Other proprietary and open source search solutions continued to evolve their indexing and query APIs at a pace that made the GSA feel rigid.
Although the GSA’s search relevancy models were some of the best, the inability to feed substantially more data to help improve these models put a cap on what the GSA could provide in terms of search relevancy.

SmugMug was a launch customer of S3 in 2006. We literally have more experience with S3 than any company Earth other than *maybe*

I have been doing Internet-scale storage, self-hosted and cloud, since 1993.

I can assure you that S3 is massively cheaper than hosting it yourself, which is why even the world's largest companies have moved and continue to move to S3.

AWS in Plain English
Hey, have you heard of the new AWS services: ContainerCache, ElastiCast and QR72? Of course not, I just made those up.

But with 50 plus opaquely named services, we decided that enough was enough and that some plain english descriptions were needed.
