Presentation: "Deploying Java applications on Amazon EC2"

Time: Thursday 15:00 - 16:00

Location: Westminster Suite


With its pay-as-you-go pricing model, Amazon EC2 enables startups to deploy Java web applications without any upfront investment in computer hardware - and allows enterprises to reduce costs and become more agile. However, because it is a cloud, some aspects of Amazon EC2 are very different than a traditional, physical computing environment. In this presentation you will learn how to use the various features of Amazon EC2 to deploy multi-tier Apache/Tomcat/MySQL applications. We will discuss which Amazon EC2 features we have found useful while developing Cloud Tools and Cloud Foundry, which are not and why.

Keywords: Cloud computing, Amazon Ec2, Java

Target Audience: Java developers and architects
