Close on the heels of Google announcing that it would set up its 2nd largest campus worldwide in Hyderabad, Amazon today announced that it will set up its biggest non US campus in the city.

Smruthi Narayan and Shwetha Pai, employees of Google Hyderabad, have recently tied the knot at the City Hall in San Francisco. The pair has been working together at the company for the last 8 years.
