Lessons Learned Managing Large AWS Environments

At Cloud Expo East 2013 I gave a presentation of my experiences in dealing with large AWS environments. In summary this included:

  1. Understanding AWS Products (especially the growth of new/revised products and pricing)
  2. Knowing the true Cost of your deployment and options with instances types, sizes and products
  3. Being prepared for Web Scale
  4. The importance of Security, what exists, the minimum you need to know working with external resources
  5. Why most Instrumentation fails due to sampling, and determining what is important for your business needs
  6. Failure will happen, not if, but when. Some things you should know
