Amazon S3 speichert 905 Milliarden Objekte – Die Billion steht kurz bevor

By on April 11, 2012 in News with 1 Comment

Wie groß ist der Cloud Storage Service – Amazon S3 – der Amazon Web Services tatsächlich? Diese Frage hat Jeff Barr kürzlich in einem Beitrag auf dem Unternehmensblog beantwortet. Die Zahlen sind riesig!

Amazon S3 speichert 905 Milliarden Objekte

Zum Ende des ersten Quartals 2012 zählt das Unternehmen 905 Milliarden gespeicherte Objekte im Amazon S3 Cloud Storage. Hinzu kommen 650,000 Anfragen pro Sekunde, die je nach Auslastung jedoch stark ansteigen. Zudem werden nach Angaben von Amazon anhand der S3 APIs, AWS Import/Export, dem AWS Storage Gateway und weiteren Backup Tools über 1 Milliarde Objekte pro Tag hinzugefügt.

Die obere Graphik zeigt den immensen Wachstum von Amazon S3. Im vierten Quartal 2006 waren es 2,9 Milliarden Objekte. Im Jahr 2008 40 Milliarden und 2010 bereits 262 Milliarden Objekte. Im vierten Quartal 2011 762 Milliarden und mit dem letzten Stand 905 Milliarden Objekte. Nimmt man Amazons Aussage – das über 1 Milliarde Objekte pro Tag hinzukommen, sollte die Billion in kürzester Zeit erreicht sein.
