AWS Scalability for Pinterest

 

 

April 19, 2012, 2:37 PM — The explosive success of the social networking service Pinterest wouldn’t have been possible without the easy scalability of the Amazon cloud services, an executive for Pinterest said.

“The cloud has enabled us to be more efficient, to try out new experiments at a very low cost, and enabled us to grow the site very dramatically while maintaining a very small team,” said Ryan Park, operations engineer for Pinterest, at the Amazon Web Services Summit, in New York Thursday.
