Update on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Alexa GrepTheWeb Service
The following presentation from Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Jinesh Varia includes an update on the Alexa GrepTheWeb Service and an excellent overview of AWS components. There is also an update on the AWS cloud architecture and definition of the Compute (EC2), messaging (SQS) and Storage (S3, Simple DB, and EC2-EBS) component integration.
Finally there are an interesting series of slides explaining courses at University of California, Santa Barbara and Stanford University on how AWS is being used to teach data mining and related topics.
This presentation also provides insights into how configurations of AWS can be customized for data mining and content management.
Disclaimer: Amazon and AWS are not clients of mine by the way. When I write about vendors who are, I will be sure to mention it.
