Presentation: Architecting for High Availability

Track: Highly Available Systems / Time: Wednesday 15:40 - 16:30 / Location: Churchill Auditorium

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides a platform that is ideally suited for building highly available systems, enabling you to build reliable, affordable, fault-tolerant systems that operate with a minimal amount of human interaction. This session covers many of the high-availability and fault-tolerance concepts and features of the various services that you can use to build highly reliable and highly available applications in the AWS Cloud: architectures involving multiple Availability Zones, including EC2 best practices and RDS Multi-AZ deployments; loosely coupled and self-healing systems involving SQS and Auto Scaling; networking best practices for high availability, including Elastic IP addresses, load balancing, and DNS; leveraging services that inherently are built with high-availability and fault tolerance in mind, including DynamoDB, Amazon S3, etc.
