Amazon Storms San Francisco
Amazon Web Services is sending its heavy hitters down south to San Francisco this week to the latest event in its AWS Summit series.
The San Francisco summit, running April 18 - 19, is intended to educate customers and partners about the AWS platform. But with Amazon CTO Werner Vogels (far left) delivering a morning keynote Wednesday, and AWS CEO Andy Jassy taking the stage later that day for a fireside chat, there will be plenty of chances for juicy nuggets of information to spill.
Will Amazon update partners on the status of upcoming offerings like the one stemming from its partnership with VMware, or the progress of those already released like AWS Managed Services? Maybe those AWS leaders will even let slip an acknowledgement of rumored products, like an office productivity suite. Will they try to do any damage control after an embarrassing recent outage?
These are some of the questions AWS partners look forward to having answered.
