GIS Cloud attended the Amazon AWS summit on cloud computing held in London on June 14th. Organized to raise awareness and present the possibilities and benefits the cloud offers, the summit answered many questions. Sessions covered a wide array of important cloud computing questions like benefits, best practices, security, development and cloud architecture, migration to AWS, etc.
The event included a keynote from Amazon CTO Werner Vogels and several customer presentations. The summit was organized and presented with detailed technical information in three parallel sessions. The Trailhead sessions was designed for attendees who are new to the cloud. The Base Camp sessions were for experienced users, and the Guided Trek was designed for attendees to discover how to apply cloud solutions. Jon Jenkins, Director at Amazon.com wrapped up the day with a closing keynote built around Amazon’s history and its own migration to AWS.
