Make it Rain: Condensing Four Years of Cloud Usage

A session at MCN 2012

Friday 9th November, 2012

4:00pm to 4:30pm (PST)

The Indianapolis Museum of Art began using Amazon Web Services to host all public facing websites in early 2008. This paper will provide a radically transparent evaluation of the successes and failures of using these services. All historical hourly usage and pricing information will be released as open data along with this paper. How to get the most out of your money, what sort of applications are not suitable for the cloud, and how to prepare for catastrophe – which happened once – will all be documented based on the experiences of the IMA.
