Cloud Migration Case Study: Why Liquid Grids Moved from AWS to AIS

Learn why (and how) Liquid Grids made the transition from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to AIS (American Internet Services) for cloud computing.

Liquid Grids is a San Diego-based firm that empowers life science companies to listen, understand & strategically engage in online health dialogue.

Liquid Grids, CTO, Ramos Mays will describe:
• the company’s experience with AWS
• the reasons for switching to AIS
• their migration process, and
• lessons learned.

This will be a “real deal” discussion in which the good, the bad, and the ugly are shared amongst both business and IT peers.

He holds a degree in Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis, did his Master’s work in Condensed Matter Physics in Stockholm, Sweden, and has been awarded multiple biotech and software patents.
