Whatcha Doin’? AWS Summit 2014 New York

There’s 104 days of summer vacation and in our industry there’s no shortage of ways to spend them. Last week we were at MongoDB World, and next week it’s going to be all about the Amazon Web Services Summit in NYC for the Redis gang. We’ll be there to meet with you and discuss application development, the cloud and, of course, Redis.

In the spirit of what’s quickly becoming a tradition, I’ve compiled a list of the sessions I plan on attending:

  • 9:30pm-11:00pm: Opening Keynote – because listening to the eloquent Dr. Vogels is always uplifting, even if no major announcements are expected.
  • 12:45pm-1:45pm: Maximizing EC2 and Elastic Block Store Disk Performance – despite Redis being an in-memory database, we’re using a lot of EBS capacity for data persistence. I’m hoping to get a couple tips on how to boost the IO we’re getting out of it.
  • 2:00pm-3:00pm: Uses and Best Practices for Amazon Redshift – big data warehouse, need I say more?
  • 4:30pm-5:30pm: From One to Many: Evolving VPC Design – VPC is becoming the default choice for many of our customers, so I want to make sure I’m up to speed on the subject.

Of course, the team and myself will also be manning our Redis booth (someone needs to give away all that awesome shwag, right?). If you want to book a meeting slot, feel free to contact Cameron (via email or twitter) or myself. Questions? Feedback? Email or tweet me – I’m highly available 🙂
