Kompoz Integrates Amazon S3 Web Services for Unlimited Storage
Miami, FL (PRWeb) November 21, 2007 -- Kompoz.com, the online music collaboration and social networking site, has implemented Amazon's S3 Web Service technology, providing unlimited storage for its quickly-growing catalog of member-generated music files.
Amazon S3 provides a web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives Kompoz access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network. S3's design provides scalability, high availability, and low latency.
Kompoz and Amazon S3 integrated seamlessly. So seamlessly, that Amazon S3 is fully transparent to Kompoz members. Audio files (MP3, WAV, WMA, etc.) are queued on the Kompoz servers and moved to S3 via an asynchronous process utilizing the Amazon API.
"S3 gives us access to a bottomless supply of worry-free storage, allowing us to concentrate on building a world-class collaboration experience for our members", said Raf Fiol, CEO and Founder of Kompoz.com. "We no longer have to think about scaling our storage capabilities. We've scaled our traffic by about 10x since launch, without having to invest in new hardware. S3 has enabled easy access to world-class storage, allowing us to concentrate on our core business."
