    Huh, never expected a traditional registrar/hosting company to switch over to AWS.

    Woah at US$90-120 per TB bandwidth costs on AWS, wonder if GoDaddy's bandwidth bills will end up cheaper ?

    Is that what happens when you spend all your money on Super Bowl ads every year, but not your own infrastructure?

    I hope AWS is better than when I used it, and when IB used it.

    I tested it about five years ago, and its performance was the worst out of all the VPS I tried at the time.

    vBulletin cloud was built (and ran) on AWS for its first year or more, but reliability issues (and costs) caused them to move it in-house.

    We have no complaints at work and we run sites across availability zones and some serious clusters on it, things that easily sustain a tens of thousands of hits a minute (legit non bot traffic, I might add)

    yeah AWS has different hypervisors for their VPSes. You want to be using their Nitro hypervisor for near bare metal performance. Older AWS hypervisors can have as much as 40-50% overhead compared to bare metal! i.e. Nitro is used in AWS C5 instances - full run down by Netflix's Brendan Gregg

    If Godaddy dropped off the earth I wouldn't shed a tear, based on their business practices over the years.

    A lot of providers are outsourcing their infrastructure to infrastructure providers - and then focusing on the product itself [the hosting]. It can be good or bad, depends on the motivations for the move.
