[Richmond Cloud Wranglers Meetup] Maximizing Efficiency and Cost-Effectiveness with AWS Graviton
Wednesday, April 12, 2023 at 5:30 PM to Wednesday, April 12, 2023 at 7:00 PM EDT
In this presentation, Lane Jennison, Distinguished Cloud / DevOps Engineer at Ippon Technologies USA, will demystify ARM computing in the cloud and focus on the opportunities available with AWS Graviton!
The session will provide executive-level and engineering-level explanations on how ARM has evolved to a server-class architecture, how the cost benefits are tangible, the performance parity graviton provides, and the practical paths your organization can refactor workloads to take advantage of this next era of cloud computing.
This talk is ideal for cloud architects, developers, and IT professionals who want to learn more about AWS Graviton and how it can help them optimize their cloud workloads.

@sarbjeetjohal @AnuragTechaisle @dvellante @furrier @emilychangtv @EdLudlow @dee_bosa @jonfortt @timoreilly @cloudpundit No question. One of the big frontiers in #cloud is custom silicon. We're seeing this in highly differentiating chips for #AI/#ML workloads + other tasks. Example: @AWSCloud's #Graviton series. #China wasn't getting these anyway though. But making their own may be harder now. pic.twitter.com/cXWv8vqeGR
@AnuragTechaisle @dhinchcliffe @dvellante @furrier @emilychangtv @EdLudlow @dee_bosa @jonfortt @timoreilly @cloudpundit It definitely will set them back by not having access to high end chips and chip manufacturing equipment. It’s not only cloud and AI, latest weaponry is filled with use of latest chips as well.
