  • : establishing geek cred since 1305712800 – Setting up an EC2 instance on AWS used to be as straightforward as provisioning a machine and SSHing into it. However, this process has become a bit more complicated now that Amazon VPC has become the standard for managing machines in the cloud.
  • Set up public and private subnets using AWS VPC — Mike Melnicki’s Blog – This is a step-by-step guide on how to set up public and private subnets for running a service on an internal network within AWS. This guide will also set up a bastion host (or jump host) and show you how you can easily ssh in to the hosts within your private subnet via the bastion host. All of this stuff can be done via the AWS web console, but I thought it would be helpful to show the specific commands and provide some commentary about what is happening on each step.
  • WordPress Checklist (Infographic): 101 Easy Steps to Follow. – It’s a big struggle in remembering the steps involved in setting up a WordPress website. And we soon realized that, there were hardly any checklists that covered all the aspects of WordPress together! That’s when we decided to create “Killer WordPress Checklist” that would cover everything from the pre-launch directions and development process, to SEO, maintenance and security. Honestly, this checklist has worked wonders for us and hope it does for you too!
  • Monitoring EC2 Memory and Disk Usage In CloudWatch Using Custom Metrics | Celingest Blog – Feel the Cloud – With CloudWatch we can track and monitor a lot of metrics across many AWS’s products and set alarms when certain conditions are met. When these alarms are triggered, they can notify us or automate actions such as shrinking or increasing an AutoScaling Group capacity. CloudWatch knows a lot about our EC2 instances’ at the hardware level but it lacks the software’s point of view. In this post we will explain how to use CloudWatch to monitor important resources it can’t monitor by default.

  • CloudInit – Community Help Wiki – cloud-init is the Ubuntu package that handles early initialization of a cloud instance. It is installed in the Ubuntu Cloud Images and also in the official Ubuntu images available on EC2. Some of the things it configures are: setting a default locale setting hostname generate ssh private keys adding ssh keys to user's .ssh/authorized_keys so they can log in setting up ephemeral mount points cloud-init's behavior can be configured via user-data. User-data can be given by the user at instance launch time. This is done via the –user-data or –user-data-file argument to ec2-run-instances
  • Tsunami UDP Protocol – Tsunami UDP Protocol: A fast user-space file transfer protocol that uses TCP control and UDP data for transfer over very high speed long distance networks (≥ 1 Gbps and even 10 GE), designed to provide more throughput than possible with TCP over the same networks. The project is based on original Indiana University 2002 Tsunami source code, but has been significantly improved and extended. As such, large portions of the program today are courtesy by Aalto University Metsähovi Radio Observatory. Includes FTP-like client and server command line applications for normal file transfers. It has additionally been extended for high rate real-time data streaming in eVLBI radio astronomy and geodesy (VSIB, PCEVN DAQ). Licensed under the original IU open source license.
