AWS Monitoring Tools Explained
by Andrew Sanders on

On the other hand, you’ll have undreamed-of visibility—something that no traditional data center can match. This visibility is a...

Are You Certified to Fix AWS?
by Andrew Sanders on

Some people are always called upon to fix things. It’s true in families (Hi Mom. Yes, I can fix your computer), and it’s also true in businesses. There are plenty of instances in which people who aren’t necessarily trained for the job might find themselves in charge of a company’s EC2 implementation, for example. If you happen to be one...

Using SaaS and Cloud Require Careful Data Wrangling
by Christine Cignoli on

The annual AWS re:invent conference wrapped up this week, with more than 43,000 attendees gathering. Some hot topics included AI and machine learning, but the bigger picture revolved around Amazon’s work to continue its public cloud dominance, according to this account.

Diagnosing (and Avoiding) the Top 3 AWS EC2 Issues

When you use Amazon Web Services (AWS), you offload a lot of the responsibility for managing those services to the cloud provider. However, you still need to monitor those services and for two main reasons: First, you need to make sure the cloud provider is delivering the level of service you're paying for. Second, you need to make sure the...

The partnership between VMware and AWS is good for both VMware and AWS—but it’s also good for IT. Any IT team managing a virtualized environment with VMware, which is a solid majority of IT teams, can move those virtual workloads to the AWS cloud without reengineering anything. Previously, VMware-heavy IT shops were locked into their complex virtualized environments, and locked...

What Should You Learn From the AWS S3 Outage
by Christine Cignoli on

So, what did we all take away from this week’s AWS outage? Depends who you ask. Plenty of us in IT think it was a good reminder to consider multicloud and hybrid cloud environments—basically, do not put all your cloud workload eggs in one AWS basket. The S3 storage outage affected about 150,000 websites hosted in Amazon’s US-EAST-1 region data...
