The epoch of AWS is the launch of Amazon S3 on March 14, 2006. The Elastic Cloud Computing service EC2 launched just a few months later on August 25. Looking back over the past 10 years, there are hundreds of lessons that we’ve  earned about building and operating services that need to be secure,  reliable, scalable, with predictable performance at the lowest possible cost. Given that AWS is a pioneer in building and operating these services world- wide, these lessons have been of crucial importance to our business. As we’ve said many times before, “There is no compression algorithm for experience.” EC2 is built on Linux and Xen. We have probably pushed these components  further and harder than anybody else. Scaling up is a constant challenge and  often puts us in uncharted territory. In this presentation I'd like to share 10 of the important lessons we have learned about Linux and Xen.
