How to scale your App and make it work even when AWS goes down.
About This Session
There was an #AWS outage in April 2011 and then again in Aug 2011, both times very large websites went down including Netfliz, Quora etc.
I have been an EC2 user since early 2007, I cannot guarantee that your app will work at all times, but I can hope to show you what I have learned and mistakes that I made so you don't do the same.
Here is the link to the presentation.
