Think about the cloud as a massive global computer . That paradigm—with developers and users managing hyperscale cloud services within its framework—means tapping into a kind of pattern recognition. Cloud data centers, substations, and fiber are physical components of a cloud motherboard. Genuine cloud operating systems like Fugue can be built..

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.

PLEASE NOTE: As of February 2018, Emulambda is not actively maintained by Fugue.

 

When Python support was announced for AWS Lambda at re:Invent, we were excited to start using it. As you could see with our emoji-powered Votebot for Slack, we put it to quick use, converting our skirmishes about lunch orders into a peaceful, democratic process.

We're big fans of immutable infrastructure at Luminal (the company behind Fugue ), and we're not shy about it!
 

Immutable infrastructure brings a variety of benefits, including:

 

  • simplifying operations,
  • increasing system reliability, and
  • continuous deployment with fewer failures.

 

To that end, we're excited to collaborate with O'Reilly.

At Re:Invent 2014 , AWS launched their new Key Management Service , or KMS. As its name implies, KMS is an AWS service that helps securely manage encryption keys in the cloud. Traditionally, keys have been managed in haphazard ways, from SCP-ing keys around your instances to baking them into machine images. The safe way to manage high-value keys.

If you work with network infrastructure, you know that it has a tendency to grow warts, that is, it drifts from its original configuration. One of our goals in building Fugue as the operating system (OS) for the cloud and a single source of truth and trust for your infrastructure is to prevent this drift from occurring by maintaining your.

On the very worth-your-time-to-follow official Amazon Web Services blog, Jeff Barr announced today that EC2 spot instances will now get "two-minute warning" termination notices.

 

The long and short of it is that you can now query instance metadata or the DescribeSpotInstanceRequests API to find out if a spot instance has been marked for.

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
  • .
