Since early 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has provided companies of all sizes with an infrastructure web services platform in the cloud. AWS provides support for requisition compute power, storage, and other services–gaining access to a suite of elastic IT infrastructure services as business demands them. In addition, AWS provides flexibility to choose whichever development platform or programming model makes the most sense for the problems which want to be solved. Besides, AWS makes it possible to take advantage of global computing infrastructure that is the backbone of its multi-billion retail business and transactional enterprise whose scalable, reliable, and secure distributed computing infrastructure has been honed for over a decade.

In this talk, I will cover various concepts of cloud computing as well as introduce some AWS services such as Elastic Cloud Computing, Amazon Simple Storage Service, CloudWatch, Elastic Block Store, and Elastic MapReduce.
