** Topic: Selecting the right EC2 instance type for your workload.

Abstract: Using the wrong instance type can cost you as much as 50% more in the Cloud. In this session I’ll show you examples of testing various workloads, and how you can achieve cost efficiency and end user satisfaction in all phases of your deployment. Set aside your expectations. I’ve tested out numerous EC2 instance types so you don’t have to. We’ll discuss methodology, and I’ll show you how NUMA (Non- Uniform Memory Allocation) configuration can impact on your bottom line. The real-world density numbers will surprise you!

** Topic: Case study – Automating the launching of EC2 instances

Abstract: Hear how BossNine Technologies automated the launch and stop of EC2 spot instances. With this automation tool the user can specify the region where he wants the fleet to be launched, the AMI that the instance should run, the number of instances, the bid price for the instances, etc. Behind the scenes, this toolkit leverages Terraform to manage the state and resources. The tool was designed in a way that AWS fleets can be start-up/shut-down by someone who does not have strong AWS knowledge.

** Topic: Cloud security

Abstract: This session will cover topics related to DLP. In this session we will talk about the importance to gain the necessary visibility and control needed to secure various services within AWS. We will cover real-time visibility and control over identity and Access Management (IAM), enterprise DLP, and granular auditing for AWS. The session will also cover DLP for real-time activities to prevent sensitive data from being uploaded to instances in AWS.
