Ed Smith from Megaport will be giving a demonstration, showing how an Amazon Echo can be used to control Megaport’s advanced SDN Fabric with nothing but a few voice commands. DSG will then show how Amazon’s Voice assistant Alexa, together with the AWS Lambda serverless compute service, were used to create this magic!

In 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services — now commonly known as cloud computing. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with your business. With the Cloud, businesses no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes and deliver results faster. Amazon Web Services
