Getting Started with Web Applications: "A web application is a dynamic extension of a web or application server. There are two types of web applications:

Presentation-oriented: A presentation-oriented web application generates interactive web pages containing various types of markup language (HTML, XML, and so on) and dynamic content in response to requests. Chapters 11 through 22 cover how to develop presentation-oriented web applications.

EC2 costs 4 times higher than running internal cluster

EC2 costs 4 times higher than running internal cluster: "The monthly bills however became more and more eye-popping ($70,000/month and growing), and some rough back of the envelope calculations led me to believe that what we were paying for storage and compute was excessive.
