Webinar: Cloud-based app development models using Amazon Web Services

The ways you can engage Amazon Web Services to run applications in the cloud are numerous: traditional application deployments on an EC2 virtual machine, containerized applications running on ECS or Kubernetes, or fully serverless. There are benefits and drawbacks to each of these approaches.

Chariot’s Ken Rimple, Director of Training/Mentoring Services, will take you through some sample architectures and the pros/cons of complexity, cost, and technical considerations for each one. At the end of this session you’ll gain an appreciation for some of the more common options available to you as you move your traditional web-based applications into the cloud.


  • Understanding of several major application development models (virtualized applications, container-based applications, serverless)
  • Pros/cons of each major application topology
  • Complexity of development, deployment, management for each option
  • Options for migrating from one platform to another, and blended approaches
