The open source platform is built on Docker and CoreOS to present a Heroku inspired workflow. continue reading the full story at InfoQ


I the early part of the ‘unpanel’ session at last night’s post Cloud Expo London CloudCamp there was a good deal of debate about DevOps and what it means. Some people talked about new skill mixes, others talked about tools. These are I think simply artefacts. The more fundamental change is about design. At the risk […]


This is a long overdue reply to Chris Hoff’s (@Beaker) ‘Building/Bolting Security In/On – A Pox On the Audit Paradox!‘, which was his response to my ‘Building security in – the audit paradox‘. Hopefully the ding dong between Chris and I will continue, as it’s making me think harder, and hence it’s sharpening up my […]


My friend Randy Bias very kindly came in and did a web conference presentation at work this week on his views of cloud computing (which are well summarised in a post he did at the end of last year). Inevitably the topic of security came up, and Randy, drawing on his past experience in the […]


Not Only SQL

07May10

No, or Not Only One of the most sensible things to emerge for the recent no:sql(eu) event (which sadly I didn’t attend) was a statement that NOSQL should be expanded to Not Only SQL rather than No SQL. This is an interesting development, as there’s been lots of good stuff going on in the NOSQL […]


After some reflection on my recent series of posts about Paremus ServiceFabric on EC2 I realise that I never provided a high level commentary on what each of the moving parts does, and why they’re important. Paremus ServiceFabric – this is a distributed OSGi runtime framework. The point is that you can package an application […]


I spent a couple of hours tinkering with this over the holidays, but mostly put it down and got on with eating, drinking and being merry. The first breakthrough was that ContextCubed just worked once I had the right Ruby Gems installed (and in fact day 5 had got me to within one line of […]


Between snow, getting some prerequisite scripts and docs a bit too late and various other stuff getting in the way, there hasn’t been too much progress today. I think I have everything set up to launch a complete cluster of Atlas agents in the sky, and get them to attach to the overlay VPN and […]


The multicast woes are now behind me (thanks Dimitriy), and I now have a fabric that spans my home network and EC2. The problem with multicast turned out to be firewall related, and the simple fix was: /sbin/iptables -I OUTPUT -o tun0 -j ACCEPT /sbin/iptables -I INPUT -i tun0 -j ACCEPT Tomorrow I’ll try to […]


I didn’t get to spend my full attention on this over the last couple of days, and somewhat as expected I’ve run into trouble with multicast. Right now it seems that whenever I put a node into the VPN overlay network it stops being capable of doing multicast. I’ll report back once these issues are […]
