Omaha Rails presentation – Amazon EC2

November 23rd, 2008 by dusty

The other night I gave a talk to the newly-formed Omaha Ruby on Rails User Group, about our experiences with Amazon Web Services, specifically our experience with running Rails applications on the EC2 platform.

We currently host both of our production web apps with Amazon EC2: Tripleseat and, and really have high hopes and much love for cloud computing in general. Though nothing we have requires the dynamic scaling that you can achieve with EC2, its just a matter of time, and we’re excited for the possibilities.

The talk went really well, and I think the group really was intrigued by the opportunities that EC2 opens. We ended with a pretty good Q&A, which is also capture on the video. Enjoy!
