Serverless is a concept in Cloud Computing that has been growing in popularity over the last 12 months. It is very powerful and has a lot of potential. In this post, I hope to help explain what Serverless is, how it can be used and some examples of how it is being used in the industry.
Cloudy AWS Premier Status #1 - Europe and North America! Job. Done.
This week Cloudreach was reconfirmed as an AWS Premier Partner in Europe, continuing our status since 2014. More importantly perhaps, Cloudreach have achieved the Premier tier for our North American business independently! To celebrate, I’ve gathered my thoughts and insights in this blog post.
In November, AWS hosted its big annual event, re:Invent, where lots of new features were released. The full list of product announcements can be found here. One of them, OpsWorks for Chef Automate, allows you to launch a Chef Automate server fully managed by AWS.
For those “in the know”, AWS Managed Services has been a long time coming.
AWS Managed Services. Do you mean Managed Services? by AWS? Yes!
Last week AWS re:Invent was a blast! Amongst very exciting product announcements, promoting the Unicorn rental business at the GameDay and the re:Play party, I was able to sit the AWS Certified Security – Specialty (Beta) certification.
AWS announced Elastic File System (EFS) as General Availability earlier this year, meaning we are a little closer to finally having a managed file storage service within AWS. However, its release is limited to a handful of regions and a limited set of features.
For those of you who attended re:Invent last week, have you recovered yet? I feel my life expectancy may be a month or two shorter as a result of the trip, yet somehow AWS and the cloudy attendees present managed to make it better nonetheless.
AWS re:Invent is almost upon us and for anyone outside of the Vegas area - probably the majority of the reported 24,000 attendees - it means a long flight. But what better way to prepare than to catch up with reading AWS whitepapers on the plane studying for the beta exams?
