Tons of tiny files is the problem where the bytes to sign ratio is low.

And I didn't say to avoid s3. I work for a subsiary of AWS I want you to use it a ton.

Let's say your serving up a bunch of thumbnails, maybe 1024 per user per load.

Or in my scenario 25k files. 25k signs per user is 40 users per second per server signing constantly.
