The AWS Report – Balan Subramanian, Amazon Simple Workflow Service

For today’s episode of The AWS Report, I chatted with Balan Subramanian, Product Manager for the Amazon Simple Workflow Service.

We discussed the Simple Workflow concept, and how it is possible to use it to build scalable, fault-tolerant application workflows. We started out easy, with the “hello world” of workflows; Balan told me how it would be implemented in SWF using a Decider and Workers.

We also talked about the SWF Flow Framework and how it simplifies workflow development.

Balan also discussed the SWF SDK and our SWF case studies, and mentioned that you can get started by taking advantage of  the AWS Free Usage Tier.
