Defining and building your AWS infrastructure with Python

George Goh

Audience level:
Lecture Room E2


This talk introduces libraries and methods to define and create simple-to-relatively sophisticated topologies for cloud infrastructure.


For developers whose application needs are beyond what can be offered by PaaS providers such as Heroku and Google App Engine, they turn to IaaS providers.

I will talk about how I use python-boto to build various topologies for cloud infrastructures on Amazon AWS. This will start from a basic introduction to python-boto and how to build a customized AWS instance, up to a cluster of instances protected by a virtual network.
