Cloud Computing with Amazon Web Services
Everyone's talking about "The Cloud", but what exactly is it? Please join
us Wednesday, October 14th 2009 at 6pm for a discussion about Cloud
Computing with Amazon Web Services.
Since early 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has provided users of all
sizes with an infrastructure web services platform in the cloud. With AWS
you can requisition compute power, storage, and other services-gaining
access to a suite of elastic IT infrastructure services on demand.
With AWS you have the flexibility to choose whichever development platform
or programming model makes the most sense for the problems you're trying
The first half of the presentation will start with an overview of AWS,
exploring each individual service. Then the services will be pieced
together to show how they work together with open source projects.
After that the focus will shift to several open source projects that run
on the cloud, including Linux and Hadoop.
The second half of the presentation will be a hands on demonstration of
deploying a custom Linux server on the Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
service. A simple web application will be installed on the server, which
will then be configured to auto-scale. To cap off the demonstration, a
cloud based load generation tool will be used to trigger the auto-scaling
