Clouds force us to reconsider basic assumptions about IT. Nothing's scarce, since on-demand resources are effectively limitless. Backups are free. Servers are simply disposable horsepower. Economics change dramatically, replacing capital investment with pay-as-you-go billing. And security changes forever, replacing internal users with disinterested third parties while opening up new potential issues. Yet many of these difference haven't really sunk in. System administrators haven't yet embraced their new role as contract manager, capacity engineer, and architect. In this session, Amazon Web Services' Jinesh Varia will show how to rethink IT architecture in a cloud world and let these changes really sink in.
