▶ Euroforum - Moving an Entire Physical Data Center in AWS
▶ Architecting for High Availibilty
Speaker: Marcus Fritsche, EUROFORUM Deutschland SE
AWS provides a platform that is ideally suited for building highly available systems, enabling you to build reliable, affordable, fault-tolerant systems that operate with a minimal amount of human interaction. This session covers many of the high-availability and fault-tolerance concepts and features of the various services that you can use to build highly reliable and highly available applications in the AWS Cloud: architectures involving multiple Availability Zones, including EC2 best practices and RDS Multi-AZ deployments; loosely coupled and self-healing systems involving SQS and Auto Scaling; networking best practices for high availability, including Elastic IP addresses, load balancing, and DNS; leveraging services that inherently are built with high-availability and fault tolerance in mind, including S3, Elastic Beanstalk and more.
▶ "Angrybirds fly in the cloud" - Scaling and Market needs for the Angrybirds Shop
The Angry Birds Global Merchandize Shop runs and scales 100% automatically in the AWS Infrastructure and is designed to easily handle 20x traffic peaks during marketing and new release peaks.
Learn about the infrastructure and the applied strategies for Continuous Delivery, Autoscaling and Zero Downtime Rollouts with the Amazon Cloud.
▶ First Week with AWS
Speaker: Daniel Pötzinger, CTO AOE Media
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud and is often the starting point for your first week using AWS. This session will introduce these concepts, along with the fundamentals of EC2, by employing an agile approach that is made possible by the cloud. Attendees will experience the reality of what a first week on EC2 looks like from the perspective of someone deploying an actual application on EC2. You will follow them as they progress from deploying their entire application from an EC2 AMI on day 1 to more advanced features and patterns available in EC2 by day 5. Throughout the process we will identify cloud best practices that can be applied to your first week on EC2 and beyond.

▶ Building Web Scale Applications with AWS
Speaker: Frank Thelen, Founder & CEO, doo GmbH
AWS provides a platform that is ideally suited for deploying highly available and reliable systems that can scale with a minimal amount of human interaction. This talk describes a set of architectural patterns that support highly available services that are also scalable, low cost, low latency and allow for agile development practices. We walk through the various architectural decisions taken for each tier and explain our choices for appropriate AWS services and building blocks to ensure the security, scale, availability and reliability of the application.
▶ Realtech - How to Determine the Economic Value of SAP in the Cloud
How can my SAP landscape be optimized safely with distributed computing so that I can meet my business needs, reduce costs, and increase value? How can I formulate hard metrics that construct a SAP optimization strategy and roadmap custom fit to my organization?.

▶ Understanding Database Options
With AWS you can choose the right database for the right job. Given the myriad of choices, from relational databases to non-relational stores, this session will profile details and examples of some of the choices available to you (MySQL, RDS, Elasticache, Redis, Cassandra, MongoDB and DynamoDB), with details on real world deployments from customers using Amazon RDS, ElastiCache and DynamoDB.
▶ EyeEm - A Scalable Cloud Architecture - Lessons Learned
EyeEm's infrastructure over two years. How the startup managed to sustain periods of hypergrowth and position itself for the future, and the lessons that the team learned along the way.
▶ Introducing AWS OpsWorks, a DevOps Application Management Platform
Speaker: Ramzi Rizk, Founder & CTO, EyeEm Mobile GmbH
AWS gives developers programmatic control of resources and the ability to grow as application needs dictate. However, managing an application can take more than simply starting EC2 instances. Software may need to be configured on the instances and changes to existing resources may be required. AWS now has an easier way to automate and control applications of any scale or complexity. In this session we will demonstrate OpsWorks, an integrated experience for managing the complete application lifecycle, including resource provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, software updates, monitoring, and access control. Attendees will leave this session with an understanding of how to control any aspect of an application’s configuration using OpsWorks Layers and Chef recipes, and automate common tasks to streamline operations.
