Amazon EC2 instance failures

August 3, 2013

We have suffered two Amazon EC2 instance failures in the EU (Ireland) region in the B availability zone in the last 2 days.

There was no disruption to our clients but two failures in two days in the same availability zones seems odd or just unlucky!

This further highlights (as we have) the need to design systems with failure in mind.

Introduction to Cloud Computing

August 1, 2013

On 24th July I gave an Introduction to Cloud Computing presentation at a location near our office Sofia.

The event was well attended with plenty of good questions. We will no doubt run the event again in the near future.
