For the January, 2019 HPC Pros meeting, I presented a re-cap of the Chalk Talk I gave at the 2018 AWS re:Invent conference on creating highly available license services for AWS. The concepts I cover in this presentation are generally applicable to other Cloud providers such as Azure and Google Cloud.
