  1. World Domination with Amazon EC2
  2. What is Amazon EC2 ? What is Amazon EC2 ? Elastic Compute Cloud
  3. Hosting ... but not as we know it. <ul><li>Hosting on Demand – No humans involved. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Automated </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fast </li></ul></ul><ul><li>But... </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No DNS – You can assign a domain name to an Amazon EC2 server but it's not officially supported by Amazon. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It's relatively cheap. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No setup fee. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Billed by the hour. </li></ul></ul>
  4. But theres more... <ul><li>Amazon Machine Instances </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A snapshot of a running server. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a snapshot of a server </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Save it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create some more servers just like that one. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Install & Configure once and only once. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Launch as many servers as you can afford with that configuration. </li></ul></ul>
  5. It's elastic because... <ul><li>Billing is by the hour (10c/hour = $72/month) </li></ul><ul><li>Server setup time = Server startup time. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A traditional dedicated hosting plan can take a few hours for the providers to setup. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Amazon EC2 setup time is as long as it takes to boot the machine </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(typically less than 3 minutes) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It's automated </li></ul><ul><ul><li>( which means it's programmable ) </li></ul></ul>
  6. What's it good for ? <ul><li>Plain old hosting. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not recommended – servers are virtual and recently some physical servers had to be decommissioned. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Load Balancing. </li></ul><ul><li>Specialised CPU-intensive work. </li></ul>
