I would like to thank Jamal from Kaavo and Stevie, Dan, and Jeff of Animoto for giving great "real world" presentations. We learned a tremendous amount about scalability and high availability on Amazon EC2. On behalf of the group, we all appreciate being able to get a taste of large scale architectures, best practices and gotchas.
Most of all, I enjoyed the interactive round table discussion and collaborative spirit.
I am going deploy a collaboration tool so our group can start sharing ideas, ask questions and get help from eachother. Additionally we will start working on the next meet up topics and date
I am looking forward to an update from Jose and Giancarlo on their "Cloud Camp" experience.
The following is a link to help you get started with Amazon EC2 and Windows. I encourage you to take about 30 minutes to watch this presentation and then execute the steps yourself.http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/entry.jspa?externalID=583&categoryID=100
Thanks again for a great evening.
