Werner Vogels to become Director of Systems Research at Amazon.com

Big congratulations to Werner, who has been researching distributed systems at Cornell University for many years. He just announced that he has accepted what sounds like a fascinating job at Amazon.

After 10 exciting years at Cornell I have decided that it is finally time to ‘eat my own dog food’; I will now be able to bring my ideas about building scalable and robust systems into practice in one of the most challenging environments in the industry. At the same time I will be able to work at Amazon on building strong research relations with academia and other research labs.
