Seminar: Introducing AWS Batch: A Highly-efficient, Dynamically Scaled Batch Computing Service

with No Comments

AWS Batch is a fully-managed service that enables developers, scientists, and engineers to easily and efficiently run batch computing workloads of any scale on AWS. The service automatically provisions compute resources and optimizes the workload distribution based on the quantity and scale of the workloads. With AWS Batch, there is no need to install or manage batch computing software, allowing you to focus on analyzing results and solving problems. In this talk, Jamie Kinney describes the core concepts behind AWS Batch and details of how the service functions. The presentation concludes with relevant use cases and sample code.
