about processes and engines

sqs & s3

I just attended a technical meeting of the Tokyo Linux User group. Emerson Mills of Amazon Web Services talked about SQS and S3. He also talked about the Elastic Computing Cloud and the Mechanical Turk.

Since I first learnt about the Simple Queue Service, I wanted to build an OpenWFE adapter for it, this service might be ideal as a base for a worklist. The Simple Storage Service on the other hand would be suitable for a document management system (DMS), maybe some versioning and locking would have to be added on top of it, but well, the hard work has already been done by Amazon.

Workflow + DMS persisted in Amazon services… Only the transient things would run on their own servers, and those servers could be Elastic provided.
