Learn how the Obama campaign leveraged Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Puppet to rapidly scale their infrastructure up for the needs of the election in a sustainable manner. Using the automation that AWS and Puppet enabled -- the Obama campaign build a significant AWS infrastructure (http://awsofa.info) while having a lean DevOps team, tight deadlines and applications that needed to be highly available. Learn about using bootstrapping puppet on Amazon EC2 instances with CloudInit, using it with autoscaling groups and secure handling of credentials in manifests. Find out how to scale puppet masters and take advantage of Amazon S3 backed RPM/Debian repos with them.

  • Cloud computing is a better way to run your business. The cloud helps companies of all sizesbecome moreagile. Instead of running your applications yourself you can run them on the cloud where IT infrastructure is offered as a service like a utility. With the cloud, your company saves money: there are no up-front capital expenses as you don’t have to buy hardware for your projects. The massive scale and fast pace of innovation of the cloud drive the costs down for you. In the cloud, you pay only for what you use just like electricity.The cloud can also help your company save time and improve agility – it’s faster to get started: you can build new environments in minutes as you don’t need to wait for new servers to arrive. The elastic nature of the cloud makes it easy to scale up and down as needed. At the end of the day you have more resources left for innovation which allows you to focus on projects that can really impact your businesses like building and deploying more applications. “With the high growth nature of our business, we were looking for a cloud solution to enable us to scale fast. Think twice before buying your next server. Cloud computing is the way forward.” - Sami Lababidi, CTO, Playfish
