Salesforce building a Service on AWS.

I saw this article yesterday in thew WSJ suggesting that Salesforce is working with some large beta clients on a new product that lives on the Amazon servers.  The “Internet of things” app (see a couple of posts ago) will be built and housed on AWS.  The reasoning, given by SF Execs is that they’re growing fast, and need to have a safety valve, but that seems odd to me.  Doesn’t salesforce essentially compete with AWS?

No, I get  that Heroku lives on AWS, but I always assumed that after the buyout, SF would move that – not so much, so I guess my question is how do you rely on your competitors for critical services?

I guess my reluctance to do something like that explains why I don’t run a $10B business…
