AWS UG North #36
The next AWS User Group North meeting will be held on the 27th February at a still undetermined venue in central Manchester. Sponsored by Panzura. I'm delighted to say that we've got a fantastic set of speakers and topics for the evening: - A speaker from Paznura: "Cloud Storage Paradigm Overviews" Part of the talk will be about edge storage solutions and the rest will cover their ELK stack Vizion.AI and how this may be of interest to anyone using Elastic Search. - Andrew Langhorn, Senior Solutions Architect, AWS: "What goes on under EC2’s hood?" Have you ever wondered what goes on under the hood when you launch an EC2 instance? How does a Lambda function actually run? Where is that RDS database actually running? In this session, Andrew takes us through a whistlestop tour of the history of EC2, from the perspective of the hypervisor. We’ll look at the use of hypervisors to build AWS, how those hypervisors developed over time, and how we built our most recent improvements to the hypervisor behind our latest generation EC2 instances, in order to provide fast, scalable and secure compute. There is no prerequisite knowledge of hypervisors required for this session! Everything you need to know will be explained as the session goes. - A speaker from Peak AI. Topic TBC. We'll keep adding more details as we work things out. We're looking forward to seeing you there.
