Amazon Sure Knows How to Scale: 2 Trillion Objects, 1.1 million reqs/s on S3


Last June I blogged about the first trillion objects stored in Amazon S3. On the first day of re:Invent I updated that number to 1.3 trillion.

It is time for another update!

I’m pleased to announce that there are now more than 2 trillion (2 x 1012) objects stored in Amazon S3 and that the service is regularly peaking at over 1.1 million requests per second.

It took us six years to grow to one trillion stored objects, and less than a year to double that number.

How many things can you keep in your head at once?
