Amazon S3 Service Level Argreement

Amazon Web Service S3(Simple Storage Service) which allows you to store data on what they call the internet cloud now has a Service Level Argreement. The SLA was announced on the AWS blog.

…we commit to 99.9% uptime, measured on a monthly basis. If an S3 call fails (by returning a ServiceUnavailable or InternalError result) this counts against the uptime. If the resulting uptime is less than 99%, you can apply for a service credit of 25% of your total S3 charges for the month. If the uptime is 99% but less than 99.9%, you can apply for a service credit of 10% of your S3 charges.

    Nirvanix has had an SLA from the launch of the company,How long has Amazon S3 been around? Obvious move by Amazon to win back some customers.

    I had not heard of Nirvanix before. I took a look and it looks like S3 but with higher prices. I used AWS because of the EC2 service and used S3 as a natural extension. What’s the benefit of using Nirvanix?
