100% on Amazon Web Services: Soocial.com - a lesson of porting your service to Amazon

This period of the year I decided to dedicate some time to better understand how our customers use AWS, therefore I spent some online time with Stefan Fountain and the nice guys at Soocial.com, a "one address book solution to contact management", and I would like to share with you some details of their IT infrastructure, which now runs 100% on Amazon Web Services!



In the last few months, they've been working hard to cope with tens of thousands of users and to get ready to easily scale to millions.

I've been trying to get on soocial.com for the last 10 minutes but the server is not responding. Doesn't bode well for such well depicted architecture. :(
