Finding the optimal amount of resources needed to get the job done, and obtaining them at the most efficient cost a tradeoff between SLA, availability and cost? These eternal concerns of capacity planning experts are more relevant than ever, despite the dematerialization of many of a company's “resources” as computing power migrates to the cloud.

It’s funny when you think about it, cloud infrastructure provides us with the capacity to power and host the most cutting edge computing technology, allowing the latest scientific and technological innovations to go above-and-beyond, but the way in which AWS is managed and how it interfaces with developers and companies is really pretty dated.
