Transcript of AWS - 10,000 FT Overview

AWS - 10,000 Ft Overview
Quick Facts
90% of all public cloud computing power is controlled by AWS (5% Azure, 5% Other)

1,000+ Services/Updates in 2016

$13 Bilion in Revenue (DellEMC, IBM, HPE, Oracle, VMWare saw a $15 billion decline)

Founded in 2006

Global Infrastructure
Made up of Regions, Availability Zones, and Edge Locations

A Region is a geographical area, an Availability Zone is essentially a datacenter within that geo.

Each region consists of two or more AZs for redundancy and disaster relief

US Stats - 5 Regions, 16 AZ
VPC - Virtual Private Cloud
Within each region in AWS.
Essentially a virtual data center where you deploy all of your 'stuff'
Route53 - DNS Service
A phonebook of IP addresses
CloudFront - CDN
Direct Connect -
Connecting your physical office/datacenter directly to AWS using a dedicated line. Used for security and reliability.

EC2 - Elastic Compute Cloud
VMs in a cloud
EC2 Container Service
Highly Scalable, High Performing
Run Apps on a managed cluster of EC2 instances
Eliminates need for cluster management infrastructure
Elastic Beanstalk
Load/Deploy Code
Takes a look at the code (PHP/SQL Testing)
Completely server less
Don't have to go into OS
Responds to events described in code
Different Services
Edge Locations
Content Delivery Network (CDN) end points for AWS Cloud Front

66 Total Locations

Essentially a cache for large media objects (vid, img, doc)

Used to mitigate latency and reduce download time for frequently accessed files

S3 - Simple Storage
Just a virtual disk in the cloud (C Drive)
Stores Objects only (files, images, ppt, docs, videos)
Do not install things like DBs and applications on S3
Example - Dropbox, or Google Drive
Glacier -
Archive for S3 files
Think Tier 3 SATA - Very slow
Extremely low cost, typically keep files here for compliance
EFS - Elastic File Service
Block based storage - High Performance
Can be shared across multiple volumes
Where you install your applications and databases
Storage Gateway
Connecting S3 to on premise datacenter
Installs on premise and communicates with S3
Example CDN
Tom lives in Boston, MA

The file Tom wants is in an Austrailia AZ

It takes a long time for Tom to download the file. Once downloaded, Tom has the file and so does the End Point Cache in Boston

The next person to download the same file in Tom's region gets the file much faster since the file is much closer now and lives in the cache.
