Load Balancing within a CloudFront POP

Harvo Jones

CloudFront is Amazon's content distribution network whose mission is to speed up delivery of content on the web. Let's dive deep into how CloudFront iterated on controlling the flow of packets within its dozens of sites, driving millions of requests per second, while meeting the goals of availability, performance, and cost, and building customer features to boot!

Did you know that every single image that is captured today from a Mars rover is stored, processed in, and delivered from Amazon Web Services? This includes data for global scientists and operators as well as the community of space fans around the world. In this talk, we will cover the impact that AWS has had on the world of science and how it is transforming how scientists approach computing. Elemental Technologies, meanwhile, powers multiple 24/7 channels on NASA TV. Elemental also powers live broadcast of sports (Cricket, Olympics, American Football, Soccer, and even WWE). We will dive deep into multiple video processing, storage, and content delivery to share the backstory on the live sports video pixels on your devices make it there. Join us to learn more about AWS, Elemental, and how they fit together to power a wide variety of unique workflows.
