Do you often tell your potential customer or investor things like “This is a PoC”, “It only works on a single host”, “We need time to install on another server”, “We need to redesign the code to handle ten thousand users” ?
You need to have solid answers to how your platform scales on growing demand if you aim for Silicon Valley.
In the first part of this seminar, we’ll focus on non-technical stakeholders like CEO and CMO co-founders, and we’ll have an overview of designing enterprise grade B2B, B2C or B2G Software as a Service (SaaS) platforms using cloud technologies. What are the best practices to scalable, highly available and reliable SaaS platforms and the store front, customer support channels? Why is an on-demand, elastic IT infrastructure setup necessary? What do scalability and automation have to do with the OPEX and the Business Case?
In the second part of this seminar, we’ll go into technical details for CTO co-founders and give examples for realizing platforms that scale from 1 to 1M User on cloud. You’ll also have an understanding of the products and services needed to realize this. You’ll also have an understanding of the products and services needed to realize this from Amazon (AWS) Cloud: Shopify (e-shop), Zendesk (Customer Support), AWS API Gateway, Lambda (Serverless Computing), EC2 (Virtual servers), ASG (Auto Scaling), SNS (Notification Service), CloudWatch (Fault and Performance Monitoring & Centralized Logging), CloudTrail (Compliance), CloudFormation (Infrastructure Automation).
