This past Tuesday, I gave an introductory presentation on Amazon Web Services at the monthly meetup for the Central Pennsylvania Linux User Group. The talk covered some of the services offered by AWS that would be of interest for those launching application in the cloud, as well as a brief discussion on security. A demo was given along with the presentation, but I was unable to record. The slides have been uploaded to SlideShare and included below.
Next month I will be giving a more advanced talk where I will highlight one of the use cases we have for AWS at Acquia, and how we utilize CloudFormation for deploy it.
