I work for a hosting company. I can't name it on the web. We have atleast 1 customer where we just manage their DR site. Its not 'cloud'. They have their own servers. Then again 'cloud' is a buzzword and means different things to different people.

Since they own the servers they have somewhat of a custom setup. So our servers and disk layouts are the way they have it in house. Not sure if Amazon would do that. I think their low price means lower level of service.

There are alot of hositng companies out there. Amazon is just one of them. I think their bread and butter is mysql because they sell on cost.
