    • 1. Intro to Cloud Computing
    • IT is a friction Contract negotiations Bandwidth management Power/cooling management Purchasing decisions Etherogeneous hardware Physical growth, relocation Disasters Human effort The two prediction problems
    • The two prediction problems
    • Amazon.com Three main businesses: - retail Largest e-commerce player - merchants - developers (AWS)
    • Why Amazon Web Services? Low margin, high volume Operational excellence Tech expertise
    • 2. Amazon Web Services
    • Amazon Web Services S3 - Simple Storage Service CloudFfront EC2 - Elastic Compute Cloud SQS - Simple Queue Service Premium Support SimpleDB Elastic MapReduce Mechanical Turk
    • AWS principles Easy to use Security (working on SOX, SAS 70 type II) Flexible Pay per use (no investment) No commitment API platform neutral
    • AWS Amazon's Global Websites How are we doing? AWS developers > 540,000 S3 Objects > 52 Billion (was 800 million in 2006)
