Behind the Scenes of the Amazon Appstore Test Drive
The beta launch of Test Drive last week on select Android devices has many developers wondering, how does it work?
Jeff Bar, Amazon Web Services Technical Evangelist, has taken the time to walk through the technology behind Test Drive on the AWS blog. Test Drive is hosted on Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2). The Amazon Appstore team can therefore easily add additional capacity whenever needed and where it makes the most sense with respect to the incoming traffic.
