SOA School: Governance 2.0 with Anypoint Service Registry

motif

The Service Oriented Architecture stipulates a change in perspective for software purchase and development which traditionally limited itself to catering for the isolated needs of a department or sub-division of the Enterprise. SOA exploits emerging standards to facilitate the development and purchase of software so that the requirements of the Enterprise as a whole are satisfied. Thus, services are identified, defined and subsequently reused in orchestrations with other services that map to the processes which form the life arteries of the Business.

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.
