See below for an overview of Jinesh's presentation and Jinesh's Bio:

New Era of Cloud Computing - Amazon EC2/S3

We have seen applications that “talk” directly to other applications (via web services), we have seen applications that can asynchronously call the server and maintain its “rich and glamorous” look without requiring page-reloading (via AJAX).

Imagine if your applications could “think” and could scale-out automatically with demand/load? Imagine if your application can “sniff” the load pattern and automatically decide and make an “educated guess” of how many more servers are needed to address the increased demand and actually automatically spawn that many virtualised server instances, without any human intervention.

In this session, Seattle-based Jinesh Varia will demo and walk you through Amazon ‘Infrastructure as a Service’ – Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) and the newly released Amazon SimpleDB.

Jinesh will share some of the coolest applications that have been built using Amazon Web Services and will share stories that change the way we do business today.
