AWS demonstrates its Enterprise credentials

At Cloudreach we are proud to be a Gold Sponsor of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Enterprise Summit 2013 at the Grange St. Paul’s Hotel on Tuesday September 17th. The AWS Summits are extremely popular and are generally oversubscribed within days of opening the registration. In a change to previous summits this event concentrates specifically on AWS use-cases for the Enterprise rather than Developer or Start-up communities.


The highlight of the last summit in April was Werner Vogels, Chief Technology Officer of Amazon Web Services. Werner’s fanaticism for AWS technology is only matched by his love of football as he extolled the virtues of AWS and Liverpool FC – big AWS users and Cloudreach customers themselves! This time we have Andy Jassy, Senior Vice President of AWS; Stephen Schmidt, Chief Information Security Officer and Yuri Misnik, Head of Solution Architects – which should provide a good mix of vision for the future and down-to-earth practicality of using AWS in an Enterprise environment.

What better way to cut through the hype and learn about what Enterprises are truly doing with AWS than to hear directly from clients using the services in production environments. The Summit features eight different clients and their experiences of AWS, with Cloudreach counting half of the eight among our clients! If you are lucky enough to be on the list of registered attendees you can hear about the full spectrum of use-cases from funkypigeon.com to Channel 4 to BP. Unfortunately places are limited and registration has been shut for some time so if you are not already on the list you will need to wait until next time or contact Cloudreach directly to talk about AWS for your organisation. Don’t forget to contact us if you are interested in attending AWS Re-Invent 2013 in Las Vegas in November!
