Data Analytics in The Amazon Cloud

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a publicly available computation and storage platform hosted within Amazon's vast infrastructure of hardware and software resources. This is the Amazon "cloud". AWS offers a set of services that an individual developer or IT organization may subscribe to and utilize with affordable "pay as you go" pricing: (EC2) for computing, Simple Storage Service (S3) for storage, CloudFront for content delivery, Simple Queue Service (SQS) for message queuing, and SimpleDB for data management. To allow developers to quickly extend their development environments to Amazon, Sybase has created Amazon Machine Images (AMI) for its server products for use in development and testing. Sybase's data warehouse and analytics product, Sybase IQ, is hosted as one of these freely available AMIs.
