AWS Solutions Architect Chris Munns talks about the challenges of scaling a technical infrastructure. From knowing where to start, and what direction to take given an unknown future, its often hard to get it right the first time, or even the second time. Cloud computing gives you a number of advantages in being able to scale on demand, and easily replace whole parts of your infrastructure, and much more. But still, where do you start? Come to this talk to understand some of the common patterns, and recommended areas of focus you can expect to work through while scaling an infrastructure to handle millions of users. From leveraging highly scalable AWS services, to architecting best patterns, there are a number of smart choices you can make early on to help you overcome some typical infrastructure issues. These patterns and practices will get you there.
Chris Munns works with customers of all sizes to help them architect solutions being deployed in the AWS cloud across a broad range of technical scenarios.
