High Scalability - High Scalability - Amazon Architecture
You must change your mentality to build really scalable systems. Approach chaos in a probabilistic sense that things will work well. In traditional systems we present a perfect world where nothing goes down and then we build complex algorithms (agreement technologies) on this perfect world. Instead, take it for granted stuff fails, that'sreality, embrace it. For example, go more with a fast reboot and fast recover approach. With a decent spread of data and services you might get close to 100%. Create self-healing, self-organizing lights out operations.

EBay Plans Fulfillment Service for Sellers - Digits - WSJ
Sucharita Mulpuru, an analyst with Forrester Research, said eBay’s fulfillment play is an attempt to be competitive with Amazon’s Fulfillment by Amazon service, which stores and ships products for its third-party sellers.<br />
<br />
“We’ll see how competitive eBay actually is able to be,” she said. “Shoppers love Amazon because the merchant usually is forced to offer all the usual Amazon shipping promos when they use FBA, and that’s a difficult competitive point to match.”
