Architectural Design Patterns in Cloud Computing, Excellent Presentation by AWS
Jinesh Varia of Amazon Web Services (AWS) authored the following presentation, which is an excellent overview of the AWS Services and basic terminology used on this specific cloud platform. This presentation describes the lessons learned by AWS in terms of scalability, cloud architectural trade-offs and also provides guidance of which storage option to choose.
On slide five there is an overview of the AWS architecture which puts this platform’s strengths and weaknesses into perspective. Overall, it’s the most effective presentation I’ve seen from AWS describing their architectural stack.
