A few months ago, MuleSoft was a major sponsor of Cloud Computing Expo Silicon Valley, the world’s leading Cloud event, which attracted over 5,000 attendees and hundreds of other leading cloud companies. At the conference, MuleSoft CTO Ross Mason spoke to a crowded session hall about the top 10 pitfalls of point to point integration to avoid in the cloud. We also set up a booth on the expo floor, where we had live demos of iON running non-stop throughout the event.

Security in the Cloud: Protecting Your Applications

motif

Security around public cloud offerings has always been a major point of concern (and controversy) for users. How do cloud providers protect customer data? How is log data protected? How is the surrounding infrastructure secured? We previous talked about how iON stays up and running even through EC2 outages. Today, we will talk about iON security to show how we protect customer information and the infrastructure used in building iON.

Building a Bulletproof Cloud: How Mule iON Stays Up Even When EC2 is Down

motif

High availability. Fault-tolerance. Redundancy. Region failover. These are all major features that users look for when determining which cloud platform to use. They are not, however, easy problems to solve when building a cloud platform. Previously, we discussed the technology surrounding Mule iON’s architecture. Now, we will take a deeper dive into these components and how we carefully built Mule iON to resist outages or failures on Amazon EC2.

About once a year the Mule Community comes together for a unique event: the Mule Summit.  We talk roadmap, swap war stories and learn firsthand what you need from MuleSoft.  I always find it one of the most valuable days of the year. Whether you are new to Mule or an old hand, Mule Summit will provide you with Mule product updates, roadmap and strategic vision as well as best practices from real world implementations. Some highlights of the summit include:

  • Meet the Mule team
  • Discuss and influence the Mule roadmap
  • Learn how other Mule users and customers solved their challenges
  • Gain best practices from the Mule experts

Starting a Java User Group in Argentina

motif

When MuleSoft opened the office in Buenos Aires, everybody from San Francisco was asking about the Java User Group here. We researched and found that there were a couple of initiatives to start it but died long time ago. We thought it would be great not only to sponsor one, but to create it and help Argentina to have it’s own Java User Group.

Development Process: Estimation is futile

motif

How much time do you invest in estimating your backlog? Do you really get any value from it? When was the last time you thought about the value it provides you? I can see estimation as a source of problems in many ways.

MuleSoft partners with Axial exchange to release open source healthcare interoperability

motif

In 2010, MuleSoft is getting very proactive about energizing the partners segment of our community.  This month we are really happy about a new partnership we’ve entered into with a bunch of ex-Red Hatter’s via a new start up called Axial.  Axial aims to disrupt the traditional proprietary handling of electronic medical record management by a few dozen large healthcare ISV’s by driving down the cost and level of effort required to enable medical record sharing. 

Reducing risk of IT failure

motif

ObjectWatch has put out a report titled The IT Complexity Crisis: Danger and Opportunity. They estimate that we are losing $500 billion per month in IT failures. That’s a scary number. If this rate of failure continues, business confidence in IT will diminish.

A couple of points in the report caught my eye, as they are applicable to the points we have been discussing over the last several months.
