18:30 - 19:00 - Building a Hyper-Elastic Task Processing Stack on Amazon ECS

Endor is building a new and unique prediction engine which provides human behavior insights at a click of a button. In order to get the best prediction possible we need to run thousands of predictive models in parallel, all the while preserving resource and cost efficiency. Our solution is running our model building tasks on spot instances utilizing Amazon ECS’s massive scalability features. We will explain our previous solution, the new solution along with their architecture, deployment mechanism, scaling policies, and general stories of how to build a massively elastic, burst-oriented machine learning stack.

19:00 - 19:30 - Microservices and Container Orchestration at WalkMe

How we run a complex microservice environment on AWS.Managing the routing and authorization of our traffic.Monitoring the health and scale of our infrastructure.Continuously deploying new services into a live environment.

19:30 - 20:00 - Running Applications on Containers at Scale on AWS

For development and test workloads, containers make deployment of code extremely convenient provide a seamless transition to production workloads.

In this session, we will dive into some of the challenges of running microservices, such as load balancing, service discovery, and secrets management, and we’ll see how Amazon (ECS) can help address them.

We’ll also demo how you can easily deploy microservices applications using Amazon ECS. We will cover:

• Key microservices concepts and common patterns
• Why you should use containers and the benefits of using Amazon ECS
• How to run and manage applications, microservices, and deep learning technologies using Amazon ECS
