AWS: Amazon CloudSearch -- Find This!

Since we experienced some issues with this month’s meetup I am publishing the presentation slides here.
We may be able to run through this at a different time again.

From our meetup description:

So you have used SOLR and think that is the only way to go for anything search related. But, (isn't there always a but?) you are tired of maintaining infrastructure or attempting to scale this thing. 
Well time to look at alternatives specifically made for the cloud. 
In this meetup we will look at AWS search, which is based on A9 search technology acquired by Amazon. It does all the dirty work for you so you can focus on your facets ;o) 
We will discuss the good and the bad while attempting to use examples and build a search domain.
