At the AWS Summit, Vogels just took the stage. The persentation contains much of what we saw at AWS Re:Invent.
Then: * 7 years ago, launched S3.
Now: * 33 major services * AWS Marketplace - Pre-packaged software (25 categories / 778 products) * 31 Price Reductions since 2006! (Benefits of economies of scale) * AWS Trusted Advisor - Saved customers $22M last year
Pace of innovation is the differentiator. 53 New Services announcements in Q1 2013.
Services: S3: 2T Objects; 1.1M peak reqs/sec EMR: 5.5M clusters launched since 5/10 DynamoDB: Now announcing Local Secondary Indexes.
DB always bottleneck in scaling.
Transformation: What Drives it? * Success of CC: Addresses uncertainty - on demand, only use when needed, pay only for what you use, leverage core competencies, turn fixed cost into variable.
Trade capital expense for variable.
Reduce TCO. 70% reduced over 5 years. (Foursquare 50% reduction in analytics costs.)
Increase innovation by reducing the cost of failure. exp often / fail quickly.
Stop spending money on Undifferentiated heavy lifting.
Go global in minutes.

The impact of AWS on clinical trials and studies is significant.

Disaster Recovery in the Cloud
“The mind is not a vesel to be filled, but a fire to ignite.”
BC High A -> backup storage -> disaster recovery
Monastery and Indoctrination have correlaries.
Lessons from Montecassino: * Backup should be accessable * Backup should be scalable * Backup should be safe * Should work with DR policy * Someone should care about it
Case Study: Shaw Media Reach 20M+ canadians / week
1M files would lose 1 file every 100K years… eleven 9s of durability.
Test the god damn disaster recovery plan. “CloudFormer” to create Cloud Formation templates.
