In his Cloud Computing Keynote in San Jose, CA, on November 20th - entitled "A Head in the Cloud - The Power of Infrastructure as a Service" - the CTO of Amazon.com, Werner Vogels, discussed the many challenges when building a reliable, flexible architecture that can manage unpredictable behaviors of today's Internet business.
Building the right infrastructure that can scale up or down at a moment's notice, notes Amazon.com's VP & CTO Dr Werner Vogels, can be a complicated and expensive task. "But it's essential in today's business landscape," adds Vogels, a distinguished Keynote Speaker at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in San Jose, CA. "This applies to an enterprise trying to cut-costs, a young business unexpectedly saturated with customer demand, or a start-up looking to launch," Vogels stressed.
His presentation reviewed some of the lessons learned from building one of the world's largest distributed systems: Amazon.com. He focused on state management, which is one of the dominating factors in the scalability, reliability, performance and cost-effectiveness of the overall system.
