Momentum reports: Amazon Web Services and iLike

Passing its two-year mark, Amazon Web Services has 330,000 developers registered, up 30,000 from the previous quarter, the company said today in a release. Among the marquee customers name-dropped in the release are Nasdaq, the New York Times, SanDisk and RedHat.

An interesting tidbit:

Bandwidth usage by the AWS computer cloud and S3 storage services during the fourth quarter of 2007 surpassed the usage of all of Amazon.com’s global Web sites. That’s during the holiday shopping season.

The spokeswoman still didn’t have more details on the Feb. 15 S3 outage, however.

One local company that has tinkered with AWS, but started out building on its own servers, is Seattle social music service iLike.

Separately, iLike also released impressive momentum statistics today.

More than 23 million people have now registered for the service, and more than 200,000 musicians are using its “Universal Artist Dashboard” to manage their online presence on social networks. The company claims that includes more than half of the top 500 music acts.

To keep it going, iLike’s expanding to Europe and Latin America. It’s also preparing to launch applications on MySpace and Orkut using Google’s OpenSocial development platform.

It’s probably not a coincidence that iLike issued its release just as rumblings picked up, again, about Facebook launching its own music service. The social network is where iLike gained critical mass, after becoming the site’s most widely used music application.
