The story of how the cloud fuels startup innovation seems never ending. In the beginning, AWS birthed cloud computing with its first service, SQS, in 2004 and quickly released several additional services (like S3, EC2, and SimpleDB). From this innovation, startups flourished because they were able to build, experiment, and grow faster than before at much lower cost. Airbnb, Netflix, Zynga, and many more were born, and the rest is history.
One of the most fulfilling aspects of working at Pulumi is learning how customers and the community practice cloud engineering in their teams. It’s exciting to see how they use cloud engineering and Pulumi to implement best practices that enable leveraging the cloud to accelerate innovation and enable better business outcomes.
