Presentation: "Rearchitecting amazon.com for the Cloud"

Time: Friday 14:05 - 15:05

Location: Stanford

Abstract: It’s a common misconception that Amazon Web Services built its cloud services to solve use cases for the amazon.com retail web sites.  In fact, Amazon’s retail web sites have faced challenges like any other business when it comes to migrating to the cloud.  This talk provides an architectural history of the amazon.com web site and how its architecture has changed over the last 15 years.  The presentation will explore a half-dozen detailed use cases where amazon.com has migrated traditional systems to the cloud.  Special attention is given to new approaches for assuring high-availability, low-latency and scalability with cloud architectures.
