    While the paper’s impact outside Amazon is probably not an exaggeration, by not mentioning the 2005-2009 “BDB everywhere” era of Amazon (which had the different lessons that having every service team reinvent key/value replication and sharding is a bad idea), and the failure of of AWS SimpleDB (IMHO due to its “everyone needs to deal with eventual consistency in everything they do” philosophy that Werner was a key champion of), Werner’s article is a total rewrite of history within Amazon.
