Scaling web applications on the cloud


Comments are closed.

Talk's been smooth to follow and the speaker definitely managed to convey most important aspects of what Amazon cloud services have to offer. The only reason why my rating isn't higher than this is that I've been definitely mislead by its abstract. In fact, instead of being focused on scaling as it was supposed to, the talk mainly dealt with Amazon service architecture and interaction basics. Amazon services and not scaling issues seemed to be the crucial part of the whole talk. Hence, it was definitely a great introductory session for those who've never heard of Amazon EC2 or S3, but I confess I expected that more hints in terms of real cloud oriented application design would've been provided.
