I am amazed at how large companies have blindly bought into Amazon AWS
and don't even realize how outrageously expensive it becomes when you
actually do scale. Orders of magnitude higher than the cost and risk
of real sysadmins and real hardware. Most applications are being
developed around RDS, SQS and all the other packaged services that AWS
offers, and certified AWS TechOps dudes are becoming evermore stupid
Amazon drones....  which is getting these companies in a vendor lock
situation that I hadn't seen since the 80's. It's like Microsoft all
over again but now using the very same Open Source technology that we
helped build all these years.

Not sure if AWS is even fully legal, for example is RDS technology
Open Source too even though it wraps MySQL and PostgreSQL ? Is there a
technicality they are exploiting ? What's the MQ technology around
SQS, are they releasing that ?

Scary stuff when you see how much of the Internet is on AWS....
