Amazon Web Services has posted a series of customer success stories, but the one posted below sticks out as particularly interesting because of its look at the successful re-election of Barack Obama, whose team was lauded in the media for their smart use of big data analytics.

From the original YouTube description:
  Learn how the IT team within the Obama for America (OFA) organization used Amazon Web Services (AWS) to innovate and deliver results that supported President Obama's reelection campaign. By using AWS, the OFA election committee was able to scale at a moment's notice to handle rapid increases in traffic.
