And the idea that AWS is mostly about wringing extra bucks (especially off-season) out of Amazon’s data centers? “We’ve far exceeded the excess capacity of our internal system,” (Amazon’s Andy) Jassy says. “That ship sailed 18 months ago.” For a company at which operational data is a state secret, that’s a telling detail: AWS is now big enough to be piling up its own silicon.
