    • Building for the Cloud Architecting Applications for the Cloud – The Key to Success in AWS Bob Harris - CTO Channel 4 Television
    • C4 and AWS • Discovered AWS (EC2) in mid 2008 • Launched our first applications in September 2008
    • C4 and AWS
    • C4 and AWS • Discovered AWS (EC2) in mid 2008 • Launched our first applications in September 2008 • Began with simple applications; complexity grew with experience • Today, AWS is our “Platform of Choice” for all web-facing applications • Selected Elastic Map Reduce to underpin our Big Data initiatives in 2011
    • Why do C4 use AWS? • Agility – Reduced time to build and deploy new platforms and applications – Increased productivity in Teams moving toward a DevOps approach • Scalability & Resilience – We deploy inherently resilient applications with minimal additional cost – Ability to align platform capacity with “peaky” workloads
