Take aways:

  • Shards – protection in silos
  • Single-tier architecture; No remote storage
  •  Evernote’s business model and cost structure. Evernote is notable for their pioneering of the freemium model, based on the idea from their CEO: The easiest way to get 1 million people paying is to get 1 billion people using. Evernote is designed to become profitable at a 1% conversion rate.
