AWS re:Invent 2013で参加したセッション&聴きたかったセッションまとめ



  • 2013/11/25 13:17 Sessionに関するスライドと動画を見つけたものについてのみ更新


  • AWS re:Invent Gameday

SQSで画像加工のキューイングしてs3にデプロイするというシンプルなシステムをテーマに。敵チームのAWSアカウントのpower user権限をもらって嫌らしい攻撃を行うというゲーム。楽しかったけどチームによって偏りがあったかなぁという印象。一応攻撃としては以下のことをやってみた。

  • auto-sclaingグループをこっそり書き換え
  • s3のバケットのpermission変更とexpire設定
  • security group設定を変更

一番嫌らしい攻撃はec2のkernel idを書き換えていたチームだった気がする。ちゃんとメモれたら(思い出せたら)レポーティングする。


Day 1 Keynote

ARC310 - Orchestration and Deployment Options for Hybrid Enterprise Environments

"Configure once, deploy anywhere" is one of the most sought-after enterprise operations requirements. Large-scale IT shops want to keep the flexibility of using on-premises and cloud environments simultaneously while maintaining the monolithic custom, complex deployment workflows and operations. This session brings together several hybrid enterprise requirements and compares orchestration and deployment models in depth without a vendor pitch or a bias. This session outlines several key factors to consider from the point of view of a large-scale real IT shop executive. Since each IT shop is unique, this session compares strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and the risks of each model and then helps participants create new hybrid orchestration and deployment options for the hybrid enterprise environments.

SVC202 -- Asgard, Aminator, Simian Army and more: How Netflix’s Proven Tools Can Help Accelerate Your Start-p

You're on the verge of a new startup and you need to build a world-class, high-scale web application on AWS so it can handle millions of users. How do you build it quickly without having to reinvent and re-implement the best-practices of large successful Internet companies? NetflixOSS is your answer. In this session, we’ll cover how an emerging startup can leverage the different open source tools that Netflix has developed and uses every day in production, ranging from baking and deploying applications (Asgard, Aminator), to hardening resiliency to failures (Hystrix, Simian Army, Zuul), making them highly distributed and load balanced (Eureka, Ribbon, Archaius) and managing your AWS resources efficiently and effectively (Edda, Ice). You’ll learn how to get started using these tools, learn best practices from engineers who actually created them, so, like Netflix, you can too unleash the power of AWS and scale your application processes as you grow.

Adrian Cockcroft - Director of Architecture, Cloud Systems, Netflix Ruslan Meshenberg - Director, Platform Engineering, Netflix

Netflix OSSの総ざらい的な説明。結論から言うと、 http://netflix.github.io を見ればよい。でも概論的に各種OSSについて聴けたのはよかった。あとすごく混んでた。

BDT401 - Using AWS to Build a Scalable Big Machine Data Management and Processing Service

By turning the data center into an API, AWS has enabled Sumo Logic to build a very large scale IT operational analytics platform as a service at unprecedented scale and velocity. Based around Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3, the Sumo Logic system is ingesting many terabytes of unstructured log data a day while at the same time delivering real-time dashboards and supporting hundreds of thousands of queries against the collected data. When co-founder and CTO Christian Beedgen started Sumo Logic, it was obvious that the service would have to scale quickly and elastically, and AWS has been providing the perfect infrastructure for this endeavor from the start.

In this talk, Christian dives into the core Sumo Logic architecture and explains which AWS services are making Sumo Logic possible. Based around an in-house developed automation and continuous deployment system, Sumo Logic is leveraging Amazon S3 in particular for large-scale data management and Amazon DynamoDB for cluster configuration management. By relying on automation, Sumo Logic is also able to perform sophisticated staging of new code for rapid deployment. Using the log-based instrumentation of the Sumo Logic codebase, Christian will dive into the performance characteristics achieved by the system today and share war stories about lessons learned along the way.

Christian Beedgen - CTO & Co-Founder, Sumo Logic

Sumo Logicの解析インフラの話。これは勉強になった。あとでメモをまとめたい。

BDT306 - Data Science at Netflix with Amazon EMR

A few years ago, Netflix had a fairly "classic" business intelligence tech stack. Things have definitely changed. Netflix is a heavy user of AWS for much of its ongoing operations, and Data Science & Engineering (DSE) is no exception. In this talk, we dive into the Netflix DSE architecture: what and why. Key topics include their use of Big Data technologies (Cassandra, Hadoop, Pig + Python, and Hive); their Amazon S3 central data hub; their multiple persistent Amazon EMR clusters; how they benefit from AWS elasticity; their data science-as-a-service approach, how they made a hybrid AWS/data center setup work well, their open-source Hadoop-related software, and more.

Kurt Brown - Director, Data Platform, Netflix



Day 2 Keynote

SPOT401 - Leading the NoSQL Revolution: Under the Covers of Distributed Systems at Scale

The Dynamo paper started a revolution in distributed systems. The contributions from this paper are still impacting the design and practices of some of the world's largest distributed systems, including those at Amazon.com and beyond. Building distributed systems is hard, but our goal in this session is to simplify the complexity of this topic to empower the hacker in you! Have you been bitten by the eventual consistency bug lately? We show you how to tame eventual consistency and make it a great scaling asset. As you scale up, you must be ready to deal with node, rack, and data center failure. We share insights on how to limit the blast radius of the individual components of your system, battle tested techniques for simulating failures (network partitions, data center failure), and how we used core distributed systems fundamentals to build highly scalable, performance, durable, and resilient systems. Come watch us uncover the secret sauce behind Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon SQS, Amazon SNS, and the fundamental tenents that define them as Internet scale services. To turn this session into a hacker's dream, we go over design and implementation practices you can follow to build an application with virtually limitless scalability on AWS within an hour. We even share insights and secret tips on how to make the most out of one of the services released during the morning keynote.

MBL307 - How Parse Built a Mobile Backend as a Service on AWS

Parse is a BaaS for mobile developers that is built entirely on AWS. With over 150,000 mobile apps hosted on Parse, the stability of the platform is our primary concern, but it coexists with rapid growth and a demanding release schedule. This session is a technical discussion of the current architecture and the design decisions that went in to scaling the platform rapidly and robustly over the past year and a half. We talk about some of the lessons learned managing and scaling MongoDB, Cassandra, Redis, and MySQL in the cloud. We also discuss how Parse went from launching individual instances using chef to managing clusters of hosts with Auto Scaling groups, with instance discovery and registry handled by ZooKeeper, thus enabling us to manage vastly larger sets of services with fewer human resources. This session is useful to anyone who is trying to scale up from startup to established platform without sacrificing agility.
