(EDU203) Instructing on the Cloud: Using AWS to Aid Professors and Teach Students | AWS re:Invent 2014

In the past, academic institutions and departments-primarily those focused on computer science, information systems, or other technology instruction-have made significant use of on-premises servers for labs, projects, and research efforts. Many of these institutions are now migrating from their on-premises environments to the cloud. They are providing computational support for coursework and back-end support for capstone projects, all while enhancing their cloud curriculum to create the next generation of IT innovators. In this session, learn how faculty can implement multi-user environments in the classroom; access AWS assets such as AWS credits, training resources, content, and labs; and collaborate on content creation and shared Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). Hear about best practices and case studies for implementing AWS in the classroom and in academic research. This session is an opportunity for representatives from academia to learn how they can leverage cloud computing to aid...

(ARC304) Designing for SaaS: Next-Generation Software Delivery Models on AWS | AWS re:Invent 2014

SaaS architectures can be deployed onto AWS in a number of ways, and each optimizes for different factors from security to cost optimization. Come learn more about common deployment models used on AWS for SaaS architectures and how each of those models are tuned for customer specific needs. We will also review options and tradeoffs for common SaaS architectures, including cost optimization, resource optimization, performance optimization, and security and data isolation.

(WEB306) UI, Load, and Performance Testing Your Websites on AWS | AWS re:Invent 2014

The only way to accurately see how your website performs on heavy load, spiky usage, and with different web browsers and platforms is to do load and UI testing. This session explains how Amazon.com uses Amazon EC2 to do automated UI testing, at scale. We also cover using a variety of open source and commercial load and performance testing tools. These tools help you identify weak points in your web architecture, fix them, and ensure that your website can scale to the demand of your users. This session shows DevOps engineers, systems administrators, software developers, QA specialists, and front-end developers how to use tools and services like Amazon CloudWatch, Selenium, Siege, Bees with Machine Guns, and New Relic to load test their websites and applications running on AWS, and achieve desired levels of performance.

(SDD422) Amazon VPC Deep Dive | AWS re:Invent 2014

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) lets you provision a logically isolated section of the AWS cloud where you can launch AWS resources in a virtual network that you define. In this talk, we discuss advanced tasks in Amazon VPC, including the implementation of VPC peering, the creation of multiple network zones, the establishment of private connections, and the use of multiple routing tables. We also provide information for current EC2-Classic network customers and help you prepare to adopt Amazon VPC.

(FIN302) From 10 Days to 10 Minutes: How Aon Benfield Leverages AWS GPUs to Make Actuarial Calculations More Efficient | AWS re:Invent 2014

Aon Benfield Securities, a leading global provider of risk management, insurance, and reinsurance brokerage, needs high-powered computing to process financial simulations for wealth management products. In the past, the firm's quarterly financial reporting took two weeks and a small army of people to complete-but by finding a creative way to use state-of-the-art AWS GPUs, Aon reduced calculation time from 10 days to 10 minutes. This session will cover Aon Benfield's use of AWS GPUs and other services from AWS, including Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) to perform HPC calculations.

(ENT306) Application Portfolio Migration | AWS re:Invent 2014

Migrating large fleets of legacy applications to AWS cloud infrastructure requires careful planning, since each phase needs to balance risk tolerance against the speed of migration. Through participation in many large-scale migration engagements with customers, AWS Professional Services has developed a set of successful best practices, tools, and techniques that help migration factories optimize speed of delivery and success rate. In this session, we cover the complete lifecycle of an application portfolio migration with special emphasis on how to organize and conduct the assessment and how to identify elements that can benefit from cloud architecture.

(EDU201) How Technology is Transforming Education | AWS re:Invent 2014

The implementation of highly scalable, easy-to-deploy technology is radically transforming educational models and student engagement. Many companies have used cloud computing to innovate in ways that have significantly improved the student experience. AWS has been an integral part of the strategies and solutions of these companies, from inception to large-scale growth to market leadership. In this session, Echo 360 and Chegg show how they use AWS services-such as Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, and Auto Scaling-to dynamically scale and allocate resources based on the school year and cyclical nature of their businesses. They discuss globalization, privacy, PCI compliance, and cost efficiency. Learn how you can apply their insights to your own educational and business models.

(BDT311) MegaRun: Behind the 156,000 Core HPC Run on AWS and Experience of On-demand Clusters for Manufacturing Production Workloads | AWS re:Invent 2014

Not only did the 156,000+ core run (nicknamed the MegaRun) on Amazon EC2 break industry records for size, scale, and power, but it also delivered real-world results. The University of Southern California ran the high-performance computing job in the cloud to evaluate over 220,000 compounds and build a better organic solar cell. In this session, USC provides an update on the six promising compounds that we have found and is now synthesizing in laboratories for a clean energy project. We discuss the implementation of and lessons learned in running a cluster in eight AWS regions worldwide, with highlights from Cycle Computing's project Jupiter, a low-overhead cloud scheduler and workload manager. This session also looks at how the MegaRun was financially achievable using the Amazon EC2 Spot Instance market, including an in-depth discussion on leveraging Spot Instances, a strategy to deal with the variability of Spot pricing, and a template to avoid compromising workflow integrity, secu...
