is the fastest growing service in AWS history. By innovating the storage layer of the database, we have been able to improve throughput performance by 5x, scale to 64TB, and improve availability. Come talk to Rory Richardson to see if Aurora MySQL would be a good fit for your AWS database needs.

Rory Richardson is the Global Business Development Manager for Aurora MySQL, RDS MySQL, and RDS MariaDB. She works with customers from large Enterprises and fast growing startups to take advantage of the latest in database technologies to meet their data demands. She believes that there is not one database for every job. Instead, AWS enables customers to choose the best database for each workload.

19:15 - 20:00 - Running Microsoft workload over AWS

For many enterprise customers, Microsoft workloads make up 80% of their on-premises datacenter footprint. In this session, you learn why AWS is the best cloud platform for running Microsoft workloads, and explore some of the AWS services and tools for managing, automating, and optimizing those workloads. Topics of discussion include: Amazon EC2 Systems Manager; SQL Server on Amazon EC2 and Amazon RDS; enterprise solutions including SharePoint and Exchange; and Active Directory and AWS Directory Services.
