With the advent of the cloud era and the multitude of cloud vendors, we wish to demonstrate a case study of a sample application hosted on two of the leading providers, Amazon and Google, and present our observations on various factors like cost, performance, reliability etc. in an attempt to guide the audience in making a decision in selecting their cloud service provider for their application.

      High performance teams are releasing software to production several times a day. This poses a challenge to Ops and infosec who need to have the confidence that  these releases will not lead to a security breach in the infrastructure. DevOpSec or DevSecOps is a discipline where development, operations and  security work collaboratively to achieve security  compliance in agile teams. In this demonstration of our open source project, we show how we used DevOps and security best practices to achieve and test AWS infrastructure.
