Apple has been talking a lot recently about its new iCloud service, and is said to be building huge datacenters to accommodate a high volume of new iCloud users. An interesting side note to the story is that, according to a report from InfiniteApple, they are using Microsoft Azure as well as Amazon's AWS cloud services.

The report from InfiniteApple indicates that the iCloud service is providing authentication through a windows.net address, and is serving images through an amazonaws.com address.
