The Long Road To Independence: How The PI System Enabled PayPal’s Separation From eBay
First established in 1998, PayPal has been a subsidiary of eBay for the majority of the last 20 years. PayPal now operates across 33 data centers and facilitates more than 6 billion payment transactions per year. In 2014, eBay announced plans to separate PayPal and turn it into its own company, initiating a long journey for PayPal toward independence. Shawn Tugwell, Senior Data Center Engineering Manager at PayPal, recently told the story of that journey during the PI World 2018 conference in San Francisco.
