In the months prior to leaving Heavy, I led an exciting project to build a hosting platform for our online products on top of Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). We eventually launched our newest product at Heavy using EC2 as the primary hosting platform. I’ve been following a lot of what other people have been doing with EC2 for data processing and handling big encoding or rendering jobs. We set out to build a fairly standard LAMP hosting infrastructure where we could easily and quickly add additional capacity. In fact, we can add new servers to our production pool in under 20 minutes, from the time we call the “run instance” API at EC2, to the time when public traffic begins hitting the new server. This includes machine startup time, adding custom server config files and cron jobs, rolling out application code, running smoke tests, and adding the machine to public DNS. What follows is a general outline of how we do this. ·
Access your Amazon S3 Storage with an easy, userfriendly and explorer-like Application on all platforms (Windows, Mac OS-X, Linux)!
Create your backups, share files like fotos between different computers or with your friends. s3ganize can manage multiple Amazon S3 Accounts within one way. It lets you create and delete buckets, upload files into buckets, download them and open these files directly on your computer. ·
JamDisk is a file-management system for the Amazon S3 Service.
JamDisk will save, share and organize your data thanks to an intuitive interface similar to Windows Explorer's.
Its functions and conviviality will persuade you from the start, whether you are
an amateur or a professional user. ·
