  • : 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.

  • Naming Schemes – A good naming scheme is scalable, unique, and easy to remember. The purpose of these naming schemes is to name networked servers, wireless access points or client computers, but it can also be used to name projects, products, variables, streets, pets, kids, or any other project where unique names and rememberable names are required.
  • SSD Cloud Hosting & VPS – – Here at MNX, we’ve been busy setting up a brand new data center for our cloud hosted services. We started off as a consulting company providing managed Linux services, which means we have been exposed to a ton of different customer environments and an equal number of schemes for naming equipment…not all of them good. It’s a problem that goes back as far as computers have existed, and everyone has their own opinion on the “best” way to name hosts. Most methods start out fine at the beginning, but quickly become unwieldy as infrastructure expands and adapts over time.
  • Trello – Organize anything, together. Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, know what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in a process.
