Level 300 | Service Deep Dive
This webinar will detail the AWS infrastructure innovation investments in the past five years, building hardware implementations of components that are typically found in software based virtualization technology, offloading the work from the processors used by customers, increasing performance, and raising the bar for security. This has transformed the bare metal servers of the past into fully flexible infrastructure. This transformational project is called the Nitro System.

Learning Objectives:
• How Nitro System delivers consistent performance, higher security and lower latency to our customers
• How Nitro System delivers the full resources of the underlying AWS servers with limited virtualization overhead
• Leverage the purpose-built Nitro Hypervisor to take complete advantage of the Nitro System

Suited For: Amazon EC2 customers, Cloud Architects, Developers, IT Admins

Speaker(s): Anthony Liguori, Sr. Principal Engineer, EC2, AWS
