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  

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.

Galaxy on EC2 in one hour!

motif

We have been running Galaxy successfully on our in-house servers and laptops for demo purposes for some time now and decided that having a running image of Galaxy on Amazon’s EC2 was the next logical step. Galaxy in the cloud gives us the opportunity to expose a running instance to a much wider audience than might otherwise interact directly with the product.
