Below is the presentation I gave at this year’s 2012 Cloud Connect in Santa Clara. It was extremely well received. Better than I expected really, given it’s last minute nature. For some, I think a lot of the architectural and design patterns aren’t new, but perhaps they haven’t been portrayed in quite this way before. For others, a lot of these ideas and content are new.
Regardless, I got some props from Adrian Cockcroft, one of the primary cloud architects for Netflix. I think very highly of Netflix approach to re-architecting their application to be ‘cloud-ready’ and to achieve high levels of uptime on AWS EC2. If Adrian thinks this is right on, then it must be.
