Amazon CTO Says Cloud Infrastructure Keeps Companies Focused On Innovation


On the night of the historic U.S. presidential election, news outlets across the country streamed live video of the news coverage on their Web sites. Obviously, the Web traffic that night, compared to others, was exponentially greater. But it’s not as if news organizations went out and spent boatloads of money to build massive datacenters to handle one or two days of heavy traffic to their sites.

At the Cloud Computing Expo in San Jose today, Amazon CTO Dr. Werner Vogels opened the event with a keynote speech that focused, obviously, on the advantages of cloud computing – however you choose to define it. Pointing out the increased traffic on election night, compared to traffic a week later, Vogels pointed out how news outlets were able to scale up their virtual infrastructure to meet the needs of the moment and subsequently scale down when the demand dwindled.
