Event: AWS Cloud for the Federal Government

by Jeff Barr | on | in Events | | Comments

Since the announcement of last March, Amazon has seen an accelerating adoption of the cloud by our Federal customers.  These include, the Federal Register 2.0 at the National Archives, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program at USDA, the project at DoE’s National Renewable Energy Lab, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at NASA. 

On September 23, 2010 we’ll be conducting a half-day event in Crystal City, Virginia to discuss the use of the AWS Cloud by the Federal Government.

Speakers will include Amazon CTO Werner Vogels, AWS CISO Steve Schmidt, and the following AWS customers:

  • Mike White, Managing Editor of the Government Printing Office and the National Archives Office.
  • Jonathan Alboum, CIO of the USDA Food and Nutrition Service.
  • Michael Wood, Director of the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board.
  • Tom Soderstrom, CTO of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab.

There will also be time for Q&A and a cocktail reception afterward for networking.

The event is free but you need to sign up now in order to reserve your spot.
