I submit that, prima facie, they supply 'Platform as a Utility' right now. Announcements over the past weeks makes me think of AWS as moving inexorably to enabling what might be thought of as 'hybrid' Platforms, which permit (sorry, Hoff) cloudbursting in ways that remove storage and application mobility from the concerns of a developer-operator.

Excellent tour of the forces leading to use of Hadoop for Social Nets and other verticals that require reasonably performant capture and on-boarding of data. It also points out some of the inherent problems of Hadoop in it's 'raw form' with respect to performance and usability.
