AWS Compute: What’s New in Amazon EC2, Containers and Serverless (CMP218)

Matt Garman, VP of AWS Compute Services, introduces the latest innovations in the compute space. In this keynote address, we announce new compute capabilities, and we share insights into what makes the AWS compute business unique. We also announce new capabilities for Amazon EC2 instances, EC2 networking, EC2 Spot Instances, Amazon Lightsail, Containers, and Serverless. Matt is joined by executives from our customers and partners who share valuable success stories of how Amazon EC2 has helped their journey to digital transformation.

Amazon EC2 Foundations (CMP208-R1)

Amazon EC2 provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud and makes web-scale computing easier for customers. It offers a wide variety of compute instances well suited to every imaginable use case, from static websites to high-performance supercomputing on-demand, all available through highly flexible pricing options. This session covers the latest Amazon EC2 features and capabilities, including new instance families available in Amazon EC2, the differences among their hardware types and capabilities, and their optimal use cases. We also cover some best practices on how you can optimize your expenditure on Amazon EC2 to make the most of your EC2 instances, saving time and money.

Better, Faster, Cheaper Cost Optimizing Compute with Amazon EC2 Fleet (CMP201)

Amazon EC2 Fleet makes it easier than ever to grow your compute capacity and enable new types of cloud computing applications while maintaining the lowest TCO by blending EC2 Spot, On-Demand and RI purchase models. In this session, learn how to use the power of EC2 Fleet with AWS services such as Auto Scaling, ECS, EKS, EMR, Batch, Thinkbox Deadline and Opsworks to programmatically optimize costs while maintaining high performance and availability – all without breaking a sweat. We will dive deep into cost optimization patterns for workloads like containers, web services, CI/CD, batch, big data, rendering and more.

Powering Next-Gen EC2 Instances: Deep Dive into the Nitro System (CMP303-R1)

The Nitro system is a rich collection of building block technologies that include hardware offload and security components built on AWS. It is powering the next generation of EC2 instances with an ever-broadening selection of compute, storage, memory, and networking options. In this session, we deep dive into the Nitro system, explore its design and architecture, discover how it enables innovative new EC2 instances, and understand how it has made the seemingly impossible, possible.

Deep Dive on Amazon Elastic Block Storage (Amazon EBS) (STG310-R1)

In this session, we explore the persistent local disk storage service for Amazon EC2 and its targeted use cases. Learn about Amazon EBS features and benefits, how to identify applications that are appropriate to use with Amazon EBS, and details about its performance and security models. The target audience is security administrators, application developers, application owners, and infrastructure operations personnel who build or operate block-based applications or SANs.

Computing on AWS: Driving Innovation w/o Infrastructure Constraints (CMP302-R1)

This session provides an overview of HPC capabilities on AWS, describes the newest generations of accelerated computing instances, as well as highlighting customer and partner use-cases across industries. Attendees will also learn how the steadily increasing interest in running HPC workloads on the cloud can be combined with the advances in AI/ML to make it a catalyst for sustained innovation in these industries.
