Harry Weller, General Partner leading NEA’s east coast venture practice, passed away unexpectedly on November 19, 2016. Please see NEA’s words for Harry.

 

J. R. R. Tolkien, one of Harry’s favorites, said, “A safe fairyland is untrue to all worlds.” Harry never counted on life or decisions or business being safe. He looked into this world and.

The approach taken by Fugue is to allow cloud infrastructure to be treated as code. This concept is required if developers are to generate applications that can exploit the cloud's capabilities and deliver on the promise of immutable infrastructure.

 

Fugue provides simplification of your life on the cloud.

As we migrate applications to the cloud or build there natively, cloud computing itself is changing how we compose and operate our systems. We increasingly compose systems of elastic collections of services running on many compute instances. We now commonly employ application statelessness in order to exploit cloud system elasticity and to.

For several years, cloud adoption by developers, tech companies, and enterprises has been gaining momentum. Global cloud spending is accelerating and market forecasts are impressive . The cloud is often thought of as a collection of remote data centers. It’s generally used that way by organizations when they first experiment with it—or even when.

Years—no, decades—ago, I lived in Emacs. I wrote code and documents, managed email and calendar, and shelled all in the editor/OS. I was quite happy. Years went by and I moved to newer, shinier things. As a result, I forgot how to do tasks as basic as efficiently navigating files without a mouse. About three months ago, noticing just how much of.

We at Luminal are launching our new vision for computing: Fugue. Fugue embodies a set of core computing patterns that rely upon:
 
  • Automating the creation and operations of cloud infrastructure through a no-touch runtime environment. This uses an active infrastructure OS under users’ control and within their environment.
  • Short-lived compute.

In two previous posts, I explored the concepts of "Minimum Viable Clouds" and "More than Minimum Clouds."

 

To recap, a Minimum Viable Cloud must:

 

  • be an SOA
  • hide implementation
  • be fully automated
  • be a utility
  • have global fault tolerance
  • be Opex

 

A cloud that is More than the Minimum must:

 

  • promote stateless, distributed compute

The M in MVC (Minimum Viable Cloud) implies that there are additional capabilities in a mature cloud implementation beyond those outlined in our previous post, which introduced MVC . Recall those sine qua non MVC requirements:
 
  • Clouds are APIs
  • Clouds are SOAs
  • Clouds Hide Implementation
  • Clouds are Fully Automated
  • Clouds are Utilities
  • .

Every time a new, hot technology appears on the scene, many companies with old, boring technologies slap a sticker on the front of their product, proclaiming it to be a torchbearer for the new tech. It's something of a parlor trick. Certainly this has been the case with cloud technologies. As a result, there's a need to differentiate things that.

Several years ago, NIST produced documents (SP 800 145 & 146) that made admirable and compelling efforts to categorize cloud service offerings with the tripartite taxonomy already in use: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). NIST sought to tighten loose definitions. This was about as.
