16 October 2013 - AWS 201 - A Walk through the AWS Cloud: Introduction to Amazon Glacier

Companies typically over-pay for data archiving. First, they're forced to make an expensive upfront payment for their archiving solution (which does not include the ongoing cost for operational expenses such as power, facilities, staffing, and maintenance). Second, since companies have to guess what their capacity requirements will be, they understandably over-provision to make sure they have enough capacity for data redundancy and unexpected growth. This set of circumstances results in under-utilized capacity and wasted money. With Amazon Glacier, you pay only for what you use. Join us for this webinar where you will learn how Amazon Glacier changes the game for data archiving and backup as you pay nothing upfront, pay a very low price for storage, and can scale your usage up or down as needed.

In this webinar, you will learn how:

  • You can pay for what you use
  • You can scale up and down based on your needs
  • You can remove the cost and complexity of managing tape archives
  • The rich partner eco system supports AWS storage solutions and more

25 September 2013 - AWS 201 - A Walk through the AWS Cloud: Development & Test on AWS

Organizations today are increasingly looking for faster and cost effective ways to develop and test products before deployment. Often, in an on-premise environment, it can be time consuming to obtain compute resources such as servers or it's usual to have multiple environments so that development and testing can take place outside the production environment. That often involves duplication of infrastructure with associated costs and ongoing maintenance effort. Together, these factors can lower your pace of innovation. An easy way to get started using Amazon Web Services is by deploying development and test workloads.

In this webinar, you will learn how:

  • Obtain compute resources within minutes in the AWS Cloud
  • Create and delete with scripts, or with a few mouse clicks using the AWS Management Console in multiple development and test environments
  • Experiment and innovate more rapidly using the AWS Cloud

22 Nov 2012 - Lower Costs and Increase Agility with AWS

With do-it-yourself options such as collocation or managed hosting, you know that your servers are always available. Reserved Instances provide the same capacity and cost savings, but with greater flexibility and less effort.

Direct costs of do-it-yourself solutions include hardware, facility fees, and maintenance. Doing it yourself requires dedicated support resources within your organization, which result in additional indirect costs and distraction to your core business. When you do-it-yourself, you only have access to a set number of physical servers; any hardware problems result in costly repairs and lost time. Reserved Instances transfer responsibility for these support activities to Amazon EC2, leaving you free to focus on your business. Join this webinar to learn more.
