(SPOT211) State of the Union: Amazon Compute Services | AWS re:Invent 2014


Published on

Join Peter De Santis, Vice President of Amazon Compute Services, and Matt Garman, Vice President of Amazon EC2 as they share a ''behind the scenes'' look at the evolution of compute at AWS. You hear about the drivers behind the innovations we've introduced, and learn how we've scaled our compute services to meet dramatic usage growth.

(SPOT211) State of the Union: Amazon Compute Services | AWS re:Invent 2014

  1. 1. 2011 2012 2013 2014 99% YoY increase in EC2 instance usage (Q3 2014 vs.Q3 2013, not including Amazon use)
  2. 2. do more with less operational excellence at scale
  3. 3. Do more with less
  4. 4. C4 T2 R3 I2 G2
  5. 5. We use Amazon EC2 to serve hundreds of millions of Pinterest users. Our C1 to C3 migration of over 1200 app servers took no more than three days while reducing the EC2 instance footprint by 75%, and adding 30% more compute capacity. Such a project could easily take up to 3 months and some serious project management in a traditional data center environment. Raj Patel, Head of Cloud Engineering at Pinterest ” “
  6. 6. Simulated 22 advanced head designs, 3 materials = 1 million possible designs Used c3 instances with Intel IvyBridge cores Ran in 8 hours vs. 30 days on internal cluster! Total cost: $5,593.94 New Drive Head Design Workloads Submit jobs, orchestrate HPC clusters over VPN Encrypt, route data to AWS, return results HPC Cluster 70k Cores Of Spot Instances Transforming Disk Drive Design Designing devices that store the world’s data

  10. 10. “Is there no minimum guaranteed level of CPU performance?” “I could get all of a core or be totally starved?” “It would be great to get solid lower bound on physical CPU allocation even if it was indeed low, so we know what to expect.”
  11. 11. General Purpose (SSD) Volumes SSD-backed •3 IOPS per GB of baseline performance •Burst up to 3000 IOPS for 30 minutes Target use cases •Boot volumes •Small to medium database Only 0.3% of volumes run out of burst credits
