Amazon recently introduced a free tier for its cloud offering. I signed up for AWS and while signing up for the free tier of S3, i found this
As part of AWS Free Usage Tier, you can get started with Amazon S3 for free. Upon sign-up, new AWS customers receive 5 GB of Amazon S3 storage, 20,000 Get Requests, 2,000 Put Requests, 15GB of bandwidth in and 15GB of bandwidth out each month for one year.
source:aws.amazon.com , emphasis mine.
20,000 GET requests & 2000 puts mean , 20,000 page views(max) and 2000 file uploads per month.
Isn't that lower than what App Engine offers 43,200,000 requests per day.Am I missing some thing, please help.
