Anyway, initially I wanted to deploy the project at Amazon EC2 - because of hyped scalability, price etc. But here comes a surprise — the performance simply sucks
Based also on the results of running MongoDB on Amazon EC2, I’d actually say this is the real surprise (Riak’s benchmarks in Joyent’s cloud)
Update: after writing it I’ve noticed that the original post is a bit old, but that doesn’t necessarily make it irrelevant though.
