Title

Successful Strategies in the Cloud: Perspectives from Amazon Web Services

Abstract

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has provided companies of all sizes across 190 countries with an infrastructure web services platform in the cloud since 2006. With AWS, companies can provision compute power, storage, and other services – gaining easy access to a comprehensive suite of robust IT infrastructure services as business demands them. Amazon CTO, Dr. Werner Vogels, is working to help businesses from start-ups to enterprises develop both short and long term strategies for taking advantage of the cloud. In this lecture, Dr. Vogels will discuss how start-ups, enterprises, and academics are making the move to the Cloud and why they are doing so more rapidly than ever.
