It may be increasingly difficult to conduct meaningful surveys on Amazon’s service, at least without tossing out many of the responses.
Also not a scientific study.
Every day more than 1 trillion events are written into a streaming ingestion pipeline, which is processed and written to a 100PB cloud-native data warehouse.
