AWS For Facebook Applications

by Jeff Barr | on | in Announcements |

Aws_facebook Developers  have used the Amazon Web Services to create highly scalable applications for Facebook including  Haikoo Zoo, Booze Mail, iLike, We’re Related, and SocialMoth Secrets.

AWS is an ideal hosting environment for these applications. Developers can start small, test and prove out their ideas, and then rapidly add processing and storage resources as they develop a following.

In order to make it even easier for developers to find the resources that they need, we’ve teamed with  Facebook to collect all of the resources that you need to be the next big success story in one convenient location. If you visit our new page on Building Facebook Applications on AWS, you can find step-by-step instructions for registration along with links to tutorials, a pre-built EC2 AMI, direct access to the relevant developer forums and interviews with the creators of some of the applications mentioned above.
