Amazon Web Services in India – December 2007

by Jeff Barr | on | in Announcements |

We received several requests from different parts of India for more information about the Amazon Web Services. Hence I am putting together a trip to India in early December.

Wipro’s product engineering has already been ahead in the game. We love the Wipro folks and we worked together and co-presented at MySQL Conf 2007, which was well received.

We are also seeing innovative use cases like this one - Outsourcer in Chennai running an EC2 application to process 4,500 staff payroll – costs him just $75 for each run. I call this “Cost-effective Innovation”.

While I am there, my presentations will be  mainly focused on:

  1. How outsourcing/consulting firms can take advantage of Amazon’s Infrastructure on-demand services (testing/QA/development)
  2. Exciting new technologies for emerging Indian Start-Ups (Utility Computing, Web Services, Virtualization etc)

As always, we would love to hear from you if you are based in India or have a development office in India and have interest in Amazon Web Services. If you or your organization would like to meet while we are there, please feel free to schedule your appointment on our Evangelists Wiki Page.
