AWS Roundtable Show 'N Tell

Next Tuesday...

As I mentioned at the end of last month's meeting, I'd like to shake things up a bit to introduce a bit more variety.  Tentatively scheduled for December is Microsoft who will be presenting on Azure and how it differs from AWS.  However, for November let's do a "roundtable show 'n tell."

If possible (but don't feel obligated), please plan a 5-10 minute presentation on something interesting you're doing with AWS *or* come equipped with a great puzzler of a question to discuss for 5-10 minutes. Speed nerding.

Looks like US-East finally caught a break and escaped Sandy unscathed.  However, it did have a profound effect on the Internet as a whole.

In case you missed it...

Michael J Bommarito gave us a tour of CloudSearch and it's use in the field of legal informatics.  Eric Detterman presented on using EC2 to drastically reduce the time and costs needed for serious number crunching in the world of finance. (Updated: now including a link to Eric.)

The last AWS buzz...

    From the "Benchmarking AWS regions" note:

    1. iperf available in package managers for most Linux distros; for Windows+cygwin:

    2. Map of AWS regions and submarine fiber capacity:

    3. Sample commands:
    a. On server: iperf -s
    b. On client: iperf -c hostname -d -P2

    Ensure that tcp or udp 5001 is open on server.

    From the "Database I/O benchmarking" note:

    As of now it appears I'll not be here. The Battery Show is on & the Michigan Energy Form usually at A2 Spark is doing a soirée at 5 pm at the show. I may choose to attend AWS-MI. Should we rename this group Cloud-Entrpreneurs? There are more clouds from IBM, HP, Rackspace, self-made clouds, and others. I can imagine many different applications, some in energy generation and production for example.

      If someone's willing to host it. We need a conference room that accommodates a dozen or more people and access to a projector.
