In this blog post, Kai Wähner describes the combination of Apache Camel and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) interfaces of Simple Storage Service (S3), Simple Queue Service (SQS) and Simple Notification Service (SNS). Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is used to access messaging systems and data storage without any need for configuration. He concludes that Apache Camel is already ready for the cloud computing era. Several important cloud services are already supported. Cloud integration will become very important in the future.
