Amazon has made waves for several years now as one of the leaders in cloud hosting and services. It’s an overwhelming offering, and in this session, we’ll tease apart some of the cloud terminology, some of the various ways to think about cloud, and how they map to the Amazon suite of cloud services and offerings.
