Among other things, the Pinterest pinboard uses Amazon's S3 object storage to keep the photos and videos that its millions of users have uploaded. Between August last year and February this year, Pinterest has grown its capacity on S3 by a factor of 10, and server capacity on the EC2 compute cloud is up by nearly a factor of three, according to Park, from about 75,000 instance-hours to around 220,000
The S3 file storage currently has 8 billion objects in it, which weigh in at 410TB.Amazon is quite the monster.
