1:25pm CloudFront & Serving Media from the Edge
Kingsley Wood, Business Development Manager, AWS
The explosion of media content makes the Internet richer and more dynamic, but it also poses challenges for IT. What happens if your website becomes instantly popular? What if your mobile application goes viral? AWS has powerful products to help deliver your service quicker, with an optimal user experience, and at minimal cost, and at massive scale. AWS provides the flexibility and agility needed in today's fast-paced web environment.

With the rapid provisioning, agility, and mobility of cloud computing, you may not always know where your data is or who can access it. Secure Cloud gives you peace of mind, knowing your sensitive information is encrypted. And with patent-pending policy-based key management, you can validate the identity and integrity of servers requesting encryption keys and specify where and when your encrypted data can be accessed.
2:40pm Amazon Database Services: DynamoDB: A seamlessly scalable NoSQL datastore & Relational Database Services Deep Dive
Sundar Raghavan, General Manager, Amazon RDS, AWS
Do you want to deliver a massively scalable web application that also performs well? Your first crucial decision is to choose the right database architecture. Your architecture should not only scale to operate seamlessly across thousands of servers but also need to deal with various failure modes such as server failures, datacenter failures and network partitions. While there is a lot of discussion on the internet on SQL vs. NoSQL, we see that successful AWS customers choose the right database architecture based on application requirements. In this session, we will show how Gumi, Intuit and Samsung use Amazon RDS to scale their internet apps to millions of users. We will show how Weatherbug and Shazam use Amazon DynamoDB to make millions of users happy. Join this session to learn the specifics on how to design for scale, performance, reliability and ease of programming to build your next web application. AWS enables you to use SQL and NoSQL data stores at the right place for the right reasons, and deliver your high scale applications to market quickly.
3:40pm Benchmarking and Performance on AWS
Robert Barnes, Director of Benchmarking, AWS
In software and services, benchmarks are often used as a way to compare the performance of competing offerings. In this session, the best practices for consuming cloud benchmark results and for designing and executing cloud benchmarks are explored.
12:45pm AWS Enabling the Startup Ecosystem
Pieter Kemps, Business Development Manager, AWS
Find out how we help startups to develop faster as they progress from the ideation stage to their Minimum Viable Product (MVP). We will also discuss how this allows startups to scale on AWS, as well as how the ecosystem and funding has changed because of cloud computing and AWS.
