5.0 out of 5 stars hidden technology Jan. 6 2013
By Ron Mahon - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Before reading this book, I was baffled. Understandably, Amazon invented a lot of the technology that's in use. , so I guess they have the right to make up names for processes and procedures. A new user would not have this confusion. I've been around computers for 40 years, and ran networks consisting of hundreds of miles of cable.

That industry also made up their own names, but they were very similar to existing technology.

After reading this book, I felt all the fog lifting from my brain. most people recognize Amazon is the world's greatest retailer. many don't realize how powerful their worldwide redundant network is. Never wanting their store to be unavailable. A built data centers all over the world. Each one capable of serving their service area alone.

Having all this extra capacity, the next logical step was to share it with other people. I have been using their S3 storage for around five years and have never had a problem. Most people don't appreciate how they're able to backup gigabytes of data in a very short time.

In my opinion. Not only are they the world's greatest retailer, the one of the best technology companies also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed. Dec 25 2013

A big part of my companies infrastructure is moving to EC2 and this user guide answered all my questions on the topic. It is concise and clear. That being said I have to say that you should have a bit of a background in computer science and a little knowledge of clustering before taking the dive here.

Step by step instructions and detailed overviews on topics makes this guide a great way to get a headstart on Amazon Web Services. I made my whole team download this and go through it at least once before starting the journey to move apps to AWS.
4.0 out of 5 stars AWS in a bag Feb. 16 2016

AWS needs an outside method of supporting itself? An interesting concept, I can certainly accept it. However this is something that should have been made available to everyone who wants to use that service immediately.
