Thought Leader: Simone Brunozzi | 5 Cool Things You Don't Know About AWS

By now, most of you are familiar with Amazon Web Services, and if you aren't, chances are what you want to know is available somewhere on the Internet. But what about the hidden secrets, the little things that are useful, and yet not well known even by super Cloud experts? In this meetup, Simone will collect tips and tricks from the AWS Solutions Architect team, and share them with you. You're free to ask questions during and after the event as well. Topics covered? Sshhh, it's a secret!

Registration begins at 4:30 PM. Event starts promptly at 5PM.

Networking reception to follow.

    Will the presentation be video recorded? Unfortunately, I cannot make it at that time, but I would love to see the video and slides later if available.

    Can anyone tell me how I get my data from EBS to S3... I've tried s3cmd, but it has a 5 GB max and my files are larger...

    Simone , I'd like to get your opinion about one of AWS issues.
    As I see it, after each reboot (EC2 instance running RedHat 6.4) the ssh server config file /etc/ssh/sshd_config becomes "slightly" corrupted. The script in /etc/rc.local adds unnecessary string "PermitRootLogin without -password" at the end of the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.
    Multiple copies of this string make instance unreachable by ssh
    It will be great to hear your answer during our today's Meetup
    Thank you in advance,

    5 PM is difficult. I recommend later.

    September 26, 2013

    • Magnus T.

      Especially since they want people to be there at 4:30.

      September 26, 2013

  • Tomer Z.

    We're also looking for DevOps engineer to join our startup. I hope we find one there...

    There is car/bicycle parking in the buildings garage.

    September 25, 2013

  • Anthony W.

    Logistical request: usually these events happen during rush hour and it's hard to get to by car/walk/transit. If there is secure in-door bicycle parking, it would make it much easier for my team to attend.

    Hi Patrick,
    my understanding is that video streaming will not be available.

    September 24, 2013

  • Patrick L.

    Is it possible to provide video straming for people work in South Bay?
