It’s a New Week!

Well, getting code up and running is one thing.  Getting it deployed is another.  I have questionable skills in the former, and not so questionable skills in the latter!  In fact, there’s no question about my lack of skill in the latter whatsoever!  So it’s taking me a little extra time to deploy TwitYourl to the Rackspace cloud.  But I did get the cloud configured this weekend.  So that’s exciting.


After selecting Rackspace over EC2 for this project (Rackspace is #2, and seems to be gaining rapidly on EC2), Rackspace verified my credit card and sent me an email.  Within a couple of hours (and that’s because I was multitasking at the time), I was able to create a number of Ubuntu instances.  I wish that there was more to report than that – but there isn’t.  It just worked.  I installed a RabbitMQ hub, and was publishing/subscribing to messages using my new cloud instance (“Look ma!  Isn’t it shiny!?”) very quickly.

So This Week

I will be packaging up TwitYourl for deployment via Rackspace, getting all of the source up to github, and looking to integrate Panopticon’s Treemaps into the project as well.

Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch

As I’ve been getting this relatively small project to the point where we can actually show something publicly, I’ve been building a list of ‘Gee, wouldn’t it be nice if…”  in regards to cloud event processing.  What an IDE might look like, what capabilities a management console would provide, etc.  Once we’ve got TwitYourl up and running in the cloud, I will start discussing that list out here, in the open.

Suggestions – Keep Them Coming

I’ve been getting a lot of email, and a lot of traffic on the blog, and I think that’s a good thing.  I’ve received suggestions, requests for briefings, and queries as to my whereabouts in the near future.  Keep it up – I love to hear from the community, and the suggestions and feedback have been invaluable.  Thank you.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network.

The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of S...
