Aaron and Brian talk with Dave Lester about how Twitter manages large-scale infrastructure, an introduction to Apache Mesos and how projects like Kubernetes, Docker, Aurora are helping to define the next-generation of web-scale infrastructure management.
Many developers choose to host their data and code in the Amazon Web Services cloud, but when it comes to choosing a region it’s not that clear how to choose between the different options. To help shed some light on this, we've tested the upload/download speeds between the 8 available AWS regions.
The real long-term benefit of using a cloud orchestration tool is to manage post deployment through built-in management, logging and monitoring capabilities, as well as the built-in workflows for automating failover and auto-scaling processes – which all eventually leads to faster rollouts and improved TCO.
However, whilst the SQL Azure databases have been migrated and are now associated with my new Microsoft Account, they are linked against an expiring subscription. Since this is a bit tricky to explain, I’ve tried to illustrate the scenario with a diagram.
In this section, we'll look at how you can put it together using Ansible to provision an EC2 instance, do the OS config, and deploy an application. In previous parts, we've only needed to have the Ansible python module installed on the execution host (y'know, the one on which you run ansible-playbook and so on).
Deploying a large scale application used to require a large IT team to provision resources. The cloud world, and the DevOps tools that have sprung up around it, have simplified this process significantly, although some of the fundamental issues surrounding large scale deployments have still not changed much to date.
bBeing visibility and control to their clients, users will still have to take total control of potential compliance risk. It has been observed that whenever business applications are moved outside the enterprise perimeter, security is greatly compromised.
Okta’s known for our simple and delightful user experience, but for those just getting to know us, we’ve created an FAQ in the Okta Community to reduce nervousness, strengthen confidence and prevent the development of hives when working with Okta.
After many conversations with our AWS customers and the AWS CloudTrail team, we recently released our AWS CloudTrail integration to automatically support the most important log events our customers wanted to be monitoring across their AWS environments. We found that some of the most common need for notifications included:
Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Cloud Zone (July 18 to July 25). This week's topics include the July Cloud industry news update from DZone Research, an OpenStack bot on Twitter, the four point DevOps story, OpenStack DBaaS, and creating a cluster with GlassFish.
While DBaaS is an interesting concept that introduces a completely new way of approaching an application’s database infrastructure, and can bring enterprises easily scalable, and financially flexible platforms, it should not be considered a silver bullet.
One of the neat things about the latest (v7.3) version of the Axway API Gateway is that it comes with pre-configured OAuth 2.0 connectors for SalesForce.com. You can find these under External Connections in Policy Studio, as shown in the screenshot below:
Automated Monitoring: Eliminate the boundaries between orchestration and monitoring with a mechanism designed to automatically react to events with corrective measures. Using custom workflows, a custom workflow engine and a modeling language, Cloudify 3.0 allows you to automate any process and any stack.
A developer over at StackMonkey wrote a bot that sells instances of his OpenStack cluster for Bitcoin, and the Twitter user @obitcoin is using it on Twitter. Truly we live in a frightening but awfully convenient digital age, made more convenient by devs like Kord Campbell, the developer in question.
In this post, I’ll go through the first steps of getting Glassfish installed and clustered with Apache to proxy requests. All this will be set up using one CentOS and one Fedora instance, but the steps should require little to no tweaking for other Linux platforms.
What solution or best practices do you see solving balkanized, silo development tooling, fractured governance, disconnected workflow, and incomplete status reporting when working with distributed outsourced teams or across internal teams?
In this blog we will show you step-by-step how to use PHP memcached support, combined with our new library to store PHP sessions directly in Oracle Coherence using the memcached protocol.
Open source platforms such as OpenStack, OpenShift, and Cloud Foundry have emerged as the best and brightest platforms for networking, data storage, compute horsepower, and secure distributed infrastructure needs of enterprises big and small.
A lot has happened in the cloud industry since the release of our 2014 Cloud Platform Research Report in early March, which is why we are providing monthly industry news updates to keep our community truly updated. Here are the major happenings up through July 16th.
Brian talks with Ariel Michaeli (@arielmichaeli, Founder/CEO at appFigures) about how appFigures was born out of FileItUp Media’s necessity, API access to all AppStore data, how mobile AppStores have evolved, how they help developers better monetize apps, and the trends that are emerging across multiple App stores.
In this post, we will be outlining in short the different OpenStack components, and how they work together. From OpenStack Cinder through OpenStack Heat, and Trove – this is your quick wiki for everything OpenStack compute, networking, and storage.
Not only is Amazon growing, but its surrounding ecosystem is flourishing, as well. It seemed to me that somewhere around 50% of the exhibitors (give or take) were new to the show. A number of which even used the event as a rehearsal for AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas this coming November.
The cloud has changed many things, but managing identity is still key. This post should help you get started. Let's start with a bunch of links and resources that will help you for getting started.
It is kind of like steering a large ocean vessel, it takes some time to change course, but now that Amazon has set its sights on mobile, I think we will see multiple waves of mobile solutions coming from AWS. I'll keep an eye on what they are up to and see how it compares to other leading mobile backend solutions.
Brian talks with Adrian Ionel bout how Mirantis has evolved in the OpenStack community, demand for OpenStack Hybrid Cloud, challenges companies have in deployment and management, and how the European market for OpenStack might be larger and more dynamic than US and Asia market.
