Life Technologies initially planned to build out its own data center infrastructure, but when a cost analysis revealed that by using Amazon Web Services the company would save $325,000 in hardware alone for a single new initiative, the company decided to use AWS instead. Within 6 months of adopting AWS, Life Technologies launched their Digital Hub platform in production, which now undergirds Life Technologies' entire instrumentation product suite.This immediately began to decrease their time-to-market and enhance their customers' user experience. In this session, we provide an overview of our path to the AWS cloud, with particular focus on the evaluation criteria used to make a cloud vendor decision. We also discuss the lessons learned since going into production.
