What is Cloud Computing?
The Cloud is Suddenly Everywhere
What is Cloud Computing? Cloud Computing is a utility service - giving you access to technology resources managed by experts and available on-demand. You simply access these services over the internet, with no up-front costs and you pay only for the resources you use.
The AWS Cloud Your Application Tools to access services Libraries and SDKs .NET/Java etc. Web Interface Management Console Tools AWS Toolkit for Eclipse Command Line Interface Cross Service features Authentication and AuthorizationAWS IAM, MFA Monitoring Amazon CloudWatch Deployment and Automation AWS Elastic BeanstalkAWS CloudFormation Platform building blocks Content Delivery Amazon CloudFront Email Amazon SES Payments Amazon DevPay Amazon FPS Parallel Processing Amazon Elastic MapReduce Messaging Amazon SNS Amazon SQS Workforce Amazon Mechanical Turk Infrastructure building blocks Compute Amazon EC2 Network Amazon VPC Elastic LB Amazon Route 53 Storage Amazon S3 Amazon EBS Database Amazon RDS Amazon SimpleDB Amazon Global Physical Infrastructure (Geographical Regions, Availability Zones, Edge Locations)
The Cloud Scales
The Cloud Scales Every day, Amazon Web Services adds enough new server capacity to support all of Amazon's global infrastructure in the company’s fifth full year of operation, when it was a $2.76B annual revenue enterprise.
The Cloud Scales: Customers in 190 Countries
The Cloud Scales: Partner Ecosystem

Media Storage - Today Exponential Growth in Digital Files Fixed Storage Assets (Main, Backup 1, Backup 2) Queue of files to Digitize And blood pressure of storage admin Unable to monetize via digital channels
Media Storage - AWS Flexible Storage Assets (Main, Backup 1, Backup 2) Exponential Growth in Digital Files Files to digitize Additional revenue opportunities for all content
Storage with Amazon S3 Amazon S3 is a highly scalable, durable and available distributed object store designed for mission-critical and primary data storage with an easy to use web service interface. Durability Standard: Designed to provide 99.999999999% durability and 99.99% availability of objects over a given year" Reduced Redundancy: Designed to provide 99.99% durability and 99.99% availability of objects over a given year. This durability level corresponds to an average annual expected loss of 0.01% of objects. Pricing (per GB / per Month)
Amazon S3 Control Access to files with built in Access Control Lists and AWS Identity and Access Management – Free Amazon S3 Solution Providers CMS / DAM Solution Providers Ooyala STL Secure data with encryption at REST SafeNet – ProtectV Trend Micro - SecureCloud
Transcoding - Today Exponential Growth in Digital Files Queue and Wait times Fixed Hardware Leads to missed business opportunities and lower revenue (i.e. not able to support the launch of yet another mobile device)
Transcoding – Amazon EC2 Queue and Wait times Exponential Growth in Digital Files Flexible Hardware to meet Demand When the job is done, shut down the extra servers to save $ Flexibility creates new business opportunities
Netflix Example Netflix needed to transcode 17,000 titles (80TB of data) to support the launch of Sony PS3. They provisioned 1200 Amazon EC2 instances and completed the transcoding process in just days.
Transcoding on Amazon EC2 Flexibility: Support for Windows, Linux, Novell, RedHat, etc.. Supports all major web and application platforms Deploy across Availability Zones for reliability Monitors status and usage Solution Providers Sorenson Media Encoding.com Panvidea
Analytics - Today Exponential Growth in Customer Data Customer Experience Fixed Hardware Revenue opportunities may be missed when you are unable to optimize and personalize the customer experience
Analytics with AWS Customer Experience Exponential Growth in Customer Data Flexible hardware to immediately handle increased processing When the job is done, shut down the extra servers to save $ IT flexibility creates new revenue opportunities

Amazon CloudFront (CDN) Amazon CloudFront is a flexible, high performing, easy-to-use content delivery service without long-term contracts, overage charges, long-term commitments or minimum fees. Self-service signup, API self-service, pay-as-you-go pricing, control over the origin for live streaming, and Integration with other AWS Services Reach a global audience with 19 edge locations in key markets Serve video to different platforms Options for HTTP download and Flash streaming Stream live events Protect valuable assets Policy based authentication, SSL delivery and RTMPE streaming Understand viewing patterns Detailed access logs and integration with analytics packages
Case Studies and Use Cases
Challenge: In 2008 Netflix suffered an outage due to single points of failure with 2 key databases. They looked to re-architect for high availability and move to a service oriented architecture. Growth: Accelerating and unpredictable, product launch spikes (i.eWii). Could not build datacenters fast enough. Solution: “AWS is the market leader and has been able to create a continuous and virtuous cycle. Large AWS customers demand (and receive) continuous improvements from AWS. Those improvements, in turn, attract more large customers and the cycle then repeats itself.” – Kevin McEntee, VP Content Engineering, Netflix
Benefits: “We moved to the clouds looking for availability. We have also found a tremendous agility by eliminating complexity, process, and control.” – Kevin McEntee, VP Content Engineering

TV Movie Choosing
Challenge: Store, encode, manage, play, and analyze a vast library of digital media files. Solution: “When we started Ooyala, we were warned that we would spend most of our time in datacenters at 2:00 AM, making sure everything was working. With AWS, we have found ourselves asking why anyone would choose to do it themselves. AWS has enabled us to build, deploy, and scale our product in record time, raising the bar for rapid innovation.” - Sean Knapp, Founder and President of Technology
Benefits: For encoding jobs Ooyala leverages spot instances to save money and gain immense scale. Sean Knapp stated that “wait times have practically disappeared.” Agility – Developers are able to focus improving and growing the business, not on the infrastructure. Almost 100% on AWS Web application – Amazon EC2 Encoding – Amazon EC2 and Resque Digital Asset Management – Amazon S3 / Amazon EC2 Monetization with Amazon Flexible Payments
Challenge: Previous CDN had streaming error rates that were above PBS’s standards. Solution: After monitoring multiple CDNs for a few weeks, PBS Interactive found that CloudFront had a significantly lower error rate than the incumbent CDN. As a result, they migrated the majority of PBS videos to Amazon S3 storage and delivered them via Amazon CloudFront.
Benefit: PBS Interactive says it has experienced fifty percent fewer errors in its video streaming performance. PBS is delivering nearly 1PB of streaming video a month via Amazon CloudFront As with all the AWS services we leverage, using Amazon CloudFront is so simple and reliable that the team doesn’t have to think about it. It all just works, freeing us to focus on building cool applications.” - Drew Engleson, Chief Architect at PBS
