Cloud computing with Amazon Web Services, Part 1: Introduction - 0 views

  • Cloud computing is a paradigm shift in how we architect and deliver scalable applications. In the past, successful companies spent precious time and resources building an infrastructure that in turn provided them a competitive advantage. It was frequently a case of "You build it first and they will come." In most cases, this approach: Left large tracts of unused computing capacity that took up space in big data centers. Required someone to babysit the servers. Had associated energy costs. The unused computing power wasted away, with no way to push it out to other companies or users who might be willing to pay for additional compute cycles. With cloud computing, excess computing capacity can be put to use and be profitably sold to consumers. This transformation of computing and IT infrastructure into a utility, which is available to all, somewhat levels the playing field.
  • According to Amazon’s estimates, businesses spend about 70 percent of their time on building and maintaining their infrastructures while using only 30 percent of their precious time actually working on the ideas that power their businesses.
