“You don’t have to say everything to be a light. Sometimes a fire built on a hill will bring interested people to your campfire.” ― Shannon L. Alder

This is one of the days where the above quote is proven to be right. As a market leader in delivering quality Cloud solutions, 8K Miles has this habit of stretching every new service offered by different cloud service providers to explore and solve the contemporary business problems. In yet another effort in that direction, we had a bunch of technical evangelists and architects gathering at 8K Miles today for the #AWSChennaiMeetup event, to discuss two broad areas on AWS architecture designs.

1) The Pros and Cons of Architecting Microservices on AWS

2) Cloud Boundaries redefined: Running ~600 million jobs every month on AWS
