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.
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.
The greatest opportunity for Amazon Web Services to grow in the short term lies in convincing large enterprises to move their computing into the cloud. Given the sheer volume of enterprise on-premise installations, AWS is counting on the incremental, and in many cases wholesale, migration of legacy operations to the cloud to fuel the next phase.
The Luminal team headed to Las Vegas last week to attend the second Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent conference. As we're actively developing on AWS, we were eager to learn about new AWS services offerings, explore the AWS ecosystem of developers, Independent Solution Vendors (ISV) and Systems Integrators (SI), and connect with AWS staff to.
In the last two posts in this series, I illustrated how an unconsidered VPC architecture can lead to inefficiency and poor resiliency. In this post, I'll show how to get to an efficient, secure and highly resilient VPC design. Keep in mind that there are many successful patterns to building VPC and this is only one of them, but is in most cases.
Dennis, an engineer at Complicado Corporation, has decided to try porting his company's web application to AWS. Dennis does a little reading and realizes that he should use VPC so his database server is in a private subnet and hits the AWS web console. He fires up the Start VPC Wizard. Scanning the options, Dennis sees "VPC With Public and.
