One of my Masters students, Sam Curren, posted a great explanation of how he's using Amazon's S3 service with Google maps to make network links just as fast as the layers inside Google Earth. He's the creator of ActiveTrails.com, a site that let's you upload GPS data of your hikes to create trail maps on Google Earth, so he's got some practical experience in this area.
