Automate deployment of EC2 instances with AWS CloudFormation APIs

When working with AWS infrastructure, it can be difficult to keep track of the provisioning of resources and potentially lead to security risks and unaccounted costs. With MuleSoft, it is easy to automate the deployment of AWS Resources using the CloudFormation APIs. AWS CloudFormation is a service that helps you model and set up your AWS resources. The resources are defined by the AWS CloudFormation template. Here is a short four step guide to automating the deployment of EC2 using MuleSoft and AWS Cloud formation APIs: 

Why MuleSoft Anypoint Platform and serverless computing (AWS Lambda) are better together

Unleash the power of your application network and Serverless Computing to transform, innovate and stay ahead of your competition.

The transition to SaaS application adoption and cloud computing continues to accelerate for both “old” server based and “new” serverless technologies. We are starting to see that all organizations are moving toward a “serverless first” approach, similar to past movements such as “cloud first” and “cloud native.”  

Introducing Anypoint Connector for Amazon EC2

A recent report by Rightscale, which surveyed 1,002 technical professionals, revealed that respondents run 41% of their workload in public clouds. A number of market research firms estimate that the public cloud market value will reach between $195B and $236B by 2020. Within this public market, Amazon continues to maintain its leadership position. 

To serve our customers needs, we have introduced a number of Amazon connectors in the past – including  S3, SNS, and SQS – in order to enable our customers to easily connect to Amazon Web Services.

Here at MuleSoft, every few months we take a couple days off and hold a company Hackathon. Usually these are individual efforts to build something unique and interesting using the technology and products that we create at MuleSoft.

To kick off the new year, we decided to sponsor a team event and see if we could get some creative new ideas that might be more then a single person could implement in a day.

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

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.
