The AWS Report – Kate Matsudaira of

I interviewed Kate Matsudaira, CTO of, for The AWS Report. Kate told me how uses AWS to implement  a next-generation online (web and mobile) shopping experience using terabytes of data pulled from thousands of sources.

Behind the scenes, uses a number of AWS services including EC2, S3, and Elastic MapReduce. Because they can scale so easily, they are able to test a number of new algorithms in parallel without breaking the bank.

I enjoyed speaking with Kate, and look forward to bringing you additional interviews on The AWS Report.
