Introduction to AWS Cloud Computing


Published on

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides on-demand computing resources and services in the cloud, with pay-as-you-go pricing. This session provides an overview and describes how using AWS resources instead of your own is like purchasing electricity from a power company instead of running your own generator. Using AWS resources provides many of the same benefits as a public utility: Capacity exactly matches your need, you pay only for what you use, economies of scale result in lower costs, and the service is provided by a vendor experienced in running large-scale networks. A high-level overview of AWS infrastructure (such as AWS Regions and Availability Zones) and AWS services is provided as part of this session.

Introduction to AWS Cloud Computing

  2. 2. How did…
  3. 3. …get into cloud computing?
  4. 4. So what is Cloud Computing? The on-demand delivery of IT resources via the Internet, with pay-as-you-go pricing.
  5. 5. What sets AWS apart? Building and managing cloud since 2006 70+ services to support virtually any cloud workload History of rapid, customer-driven releases 13 regions, 35 availability zones, 56 edge locations 51 proactive price reductions to date Tens of thousands of partners; 2,500+ Marketplace products Experience Service breadth & depth Pace of innovation Global footprint Pricing philosophy Ecosystem
  6. 6. Global Footprint Over 1 million active customers per month across 190 countries 2,300 government agencies 7,000 educational institutions 13 regions 35 availability zones + 4 more coming soon 56 edge locations AWS is available today in the U.S., Brazil, Europe, Japan, Singapore, Australia, and China. Additional regions in the UK, Canada, China, and Ohio are expected to come online over the next 12 – 18 months.
  7. 7. Example AWS Region AZ AZ AZ AZ AZ Transit Transit • 1 of 13 AWS worldwide AWS regions • Redundant paths to transit centers • Transit centers connect to: – Private links to other AWS Regions – Private links to AWS Direct Connect customers – Internet through peering & paid transit • Metro-area DWDM links between AZs • 82,864 fiber strands in region • AZs <2 ms apart & usually <1 ms • 25 Tbps peak inter-AZs traffic
  8. 8. Why Availability Zones? Challenges with traditional asynchronous replication between distant data centers • Committing to an SSD order 1 to 2 ms • But Sydney to Melbourne is 20 ms • You can’t wait 20 ms to commit a transaction Traditional failure, difficult decision: • Failover & lose transactions, or • Or don’t failover & lose availability • Difficult choice AZs for no-admin failover • Sync works when < 2 ms • Combine with regional replication for very high availability (VHA) 20 ms
  9. 9. Region Redundant tier-1 region-to-region connectivity Transit Centers connect: • Private links to other regions • Private links to Direct Connect customers • Internet through peering & paid transit AZs on separate flood plains AZs fault separated (sub-stations) AZs TYPICALLY <1 ms separation 25 Tbps peak inter-AZ traffic 3 AZa AZc AZbDC DC DC DC DC DC DC DC DC DC DC DC TC TC
  10. 10. Example AWS Availability Zone AZ AZ AZ AZ AZ Transit Transit • 1 of 33 AZs worldwide • Each AZ is 1 or more DCs – No DC is in two AZs – Some AZs have as many as 6 DCs • All regions have 2 or more EC2 AZs • DCs in AZ less than ¼ ms apart – Don’t need inter-AZ independence – Do require low latency & full B/W
  11. 11. Example AWS Data Center • Single DC typically over 50,000 servers & often over 80,000 – Larger DCs undesirable (blast radius) • Up to 102 Tbps provisioned to a single DC • AWS custom network equipment: – Multi-ODM sourced – Amazon custom network protocol stack
