Trending: Jeff Bezos has a new ‘shadow:’ Amazon forecasting executive Wei Gao

At Tuesday’s Structure:Europe event,’s CTO Werner Vogels hinted that “there are things coming down the pipe you wouldn’t believe,” when asked about what’s in store for Amazon’s Web Services.

GigaOM did a little speculating this morning into what Vogels could have been talking about, and some of the possibilities are pretty interesting.

A few predictions: higher-end analytics, market segmentation with big software vendors like Oracle (a potential competitor in this space) and more PaaS capabilities.

Seems like there is some big stuff on the horizon for AWS.

Earlier this month, AWS senior vice president Andy Jassy shared some insightful thoughts at the end of the WTIA TechNW conference in Seattle. He touched on the rise of private clouds behind company firewalls, the need to stay flexible and also added that every single day, AWS is adding enough new servers to have handled all of Amazon when it was a $3 billion revenue company around the year 2000.

So, what do you think is the next move for AWS?
