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.

The last time we talked I show you how you can easily build RESTful APIs on top of iON.  I just covered just a very narrow scenario, the sky is the limit when talking about the kind of integrations that you can build using iON. So this week I’m going to walk you through another interesting use case, IVRs. If you don’t know what they are, don’t worry I will cover the basics in this article. 

Writing your first Cloud Conector using the DevKit

motif

In this blog post I will show how to extend Mule in a simple way using the recently released Mule DevKit. The goal of the Mule DevKit is to accelerate the development of Mule extensions by abstracting you from Mule specific stuff so that you just focus on what your are trying to build.

My idea here is to create a simple Cloud Connector to interact with Google Maps API but the concepts covered here can be used in other scenarios as well.

We have been seeing incredible early success with our iON integration platform as a service (iPaaS). We have talked with over a hundred SaaS providers over the past couple of months, and overwhelmingly, we are hearing that integration is a major challenge for them as they go to market. Time and time again, these SaaS providers have been telling us that their customers increasingly need to integrate their SaaS offering with other SaaS and on-premise systems.

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.

If you reached this blog and you are not a Mule user (yet) keep reading, I will not cover anything Mule specific. If you are new to OAuth or want to get an introduction to its concepts this post is the right one!

Authentication is vital in any kind of system but it is even more relevant when it comes to the web. As the web grows,

Building a highly available and fault tolerant cloud platform comes with its share of challenges. What happens when components fail? What happens when the cloud itself experiences downtime?  How is it possible to ensure customer apps are always available and their log data is never lost?

These are some of the very questions we ask ourselves when working through the iON architecture.  With so many choices, both open-source and commercial,
