The Startup Project

Amazon Web Services and Madrona Venture Group are hosting The Startup Project at PravdaStudios Loft in Seattle on Thursday, April 26th. This should be an interesting look at how startups are leveraging Amazons infrastructure.

Amazons Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2) and Simple Storage Service (S3) are a powerful combination, especially with the ability to mount S3 as a filesystem in EC2 (though Id still like to see a database service added to the equation).

This isnt the first time Madrona and Amazon have worked together. Madrona helped fund Amazon. Tom Alberg, a Director at Madrona, serves on Amazons board. And at least one startup Madrona funded was acquired by Amazon. So an event hosted by the two together should be all the more interesting.

Whether youre new to Amazon Web Services, or attending primarily to meet interesting people in the Seattle area, it should be a great event. Dont forget to RSVP!
