Meet The Fastest Growing Site Ever In History

Okay, that is a moving title. But here are some facts on Pinterest – it might not be the fastest growing site, but is definitely among the fastest.

“80 million objects stored in S3 with 410 terabytes of user data, 10x what they had in August. EC2 instances have grown by 3x.
12 employees as of last December. Using the cloud a site can grow dramatically while maintaining a very small team.

One of the fastest growing sites in history. Cites AWS for making it possible to handle 18 million visitors in March, a 50% increase from the previous month, with very little IT infrastructure.”
