  • 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.

  • Speeding up Magento with APC or Memcached – Tutorials – Magebase – We often hear complaints about how Magento is slow and performs poorly. Developers know, however, that performance is relative and that we can do a number of things to speed up a Magento site. This article will focus on configuring and using APC and/or Memcached. We have a resources section at the end of this article with links to more performance optimization techniques.

    The options obviously also depend on the specific hosting arrangement. I will assume for the purposes of this article, that you have control over your hosting server and are able to install the necessary add-ons and make configuration changes to Apache and PHP. If you are on a shared environment, you may have to check with your hosting support if you can apply the tips from this article. But, you know that you should at least be on a VPS if you are running Magento.

  • Speed up Magento with simple config tweaks – At Ionata we’ve been using Magento for quite a while now and the more sites we added, the slower our server seemed to become. Magento is quite a big chunk of software and can take up a lot of resources. However after doing some research and carefully tweaking our server configurations, we were pretty amazed to find performance gains of several hundred percent only by changing some settings.

    In this post you’ll find a summary of settings that can boost the speed and responsiveness of your Magento installation. Optimisation can be done for PHP, MySQL, Apache and Magento itself.

  • Apache 2 Basic Configuration on Unix-Like Systems | Nettuts+ – The Apache server is a service that runs in the background, waiting for requests from clients connecting to the ports it listens to, in order to take action. Apache either responds to those requests, or leaves related notes in its log files. Its behavior is controlled through its configuration, using what is known as directives (among other things). We’ll discuss the most basic directives in this article.
