Lordy, Lordy.

This is just like the "76% of Internet usage is through mobile phones" BS, that had everyone jumping around like idiots to make stuff suitable for the mobile market (yes, ms, I'm looking at you!)

What the knee-jerkers failed to take into account was that 99.99% of that 76% was ads downloading, apps updating, and things like Poke Mongo, which has a constant stream of data sent from millions of handsets -- not to mention the billions of GB of personal data that google sucks up.

I.e. not something to base plans for your company's future on.

It's the same with aws databases: IT'S ALL TRIVIAL CR@P, GUYS!

No company with an ounce of sense stores its critical databases on aws servers.  It's all databases for web-sites made with "You can make a web-site in 20 minutes!" shells, and game cr@p.

If you're in charge of a business-critical database or two, don't even think of moving them to the cloud -- especially aws.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
