Amazon bridges enterprise IT with cloud backup

Thumb Up

Is Amazon Just Saying...

As El Reg and The451 point out, Amazon is now competing with a clutch of other gateway makers.

But its gateway is a tad basic - virtual only, no customer encryption, no caching-for-performance (yet), no de-dupe. So is Amazon serious, or is it just trying to publicize the gateway concept? Doesn't it like doing raw IT services more than it likes support and handholding? Don't all the existing gateways connect to Amazon S3 anyway? (They do.) I'm just saying....
