Simson Garfinkel in [create ;login:] - "I think that Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2 are a taste of the kinds of computer utility services that will be available in the not-so-distant future. High-quality storage, computation, and bandwidth will be available at commodity prices. With any luck other companies will reimplement the server side of Amazon's APIs, making it possible to move a service easily from one provider to another."

I hope we'll have that luck. Besides, if you've not come across S3/EC2 and/or wonder what the fuss is all about, Garfinkel's article provides a very nice overview of possible chances and pitfalls.
