11,000 people registered! The FIRST DAY of the AWS Summit Tokyo 2014 was hot! The sponsors are incredible, and the speakers are like rockstars!

Here are some tweets about the event:

When I arrived at the event, this room was packed. Since Japan is known to be very organized, they provided separate rooms where you can watch Dr. Vogels on a wide screen only in Japanese version. Participants who were in the same room with Dr. Vogels were given audio receivers, so they can listen to the Amazon CTO’s talk in Japanese.

Part of his talk covered some of Amazon Web Services’ amazing products. Let’s name a few like T2 (low cost, high CPU performance), EBS, Amazon Kinesis (which is now available in Tokyo), and Zocalo (one of the latest products).
