MICROSERVICES is the most popular buzz word in the field of software architecture these days. Microservices architecture is an approach of breaking single large monolithic applications into individual components running its own process with light weight mechanisms. Micro service architectural pattern is appreciated due to its special features including loosely coupled architecture, light weight and the...
Cloud is one of the most important technological evolutions in past few years. It is the term used for describing the computing power of the web for processing and storing information rather than local computers. How to share, store and process large amount of data has always been the most determined and tricky endeavors of the healthcare industry since its inception. Cloud has many benefits for businesses, but is also making advancements in the medical industry. Cloud technology is extensively adopted by healthcare organizations worldwide. It is becoming a dynamic tool for the healthcare...
Cloud computing is an emerging area of distributed computing that offers numerous potential benefits to the organizations.
The practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage and process data, is termed as Cloud Computing. Setting up a virtual office gets easier with cloud computing as it provides flexibility of connecting yourself to your business anywhere, anytime.
Are you updating your Facebook status or checking your bank balance on your mobile phone? Remember you are using cloud computing! In short, cloud is finally becoming the vital...
Despite the quick appropriation of cloud computing and its positive effect on business, there are still a few myths, concerns and falsehood around conveying and running applications in the cloud. Being on the cloud will improve your agility and give you cost savings and upgraded proficiency.
However, it is difficult perceiving the fabrications that have grown up about the move. With assistance from Microsoft here are some of the myths busted to make you feel more certain with part of your move. Cloud is perceived as encouraging "speed-to-market" – and for its capacity to drive business...

When a server fails, it may be because of a network availability issue or something more serious, such as system failure. To create a secure and encrypted connection between your internet enabled device such as laptop, desktop or iPad, we use a VPN or Virtual Private Network. While creating the VPN connection, you must specify the type of routing that you plan to use, and update the route table for your subnet.
The type of routing that you select can depend on the kind and...

One of the big reasons and indeed a widely-marketed reason for adopting cloud technology is scalability. The idea that capacity can be changed on the fly based on varying load. Among the various options for scaling available on various public cloud service providers, auto scaling has been a much-sought after features for many application developers and business user alike.
However, in practice I see that the feature is often misunderstood in the...
Arcus Region Migration Services (ARMS) for migration across AWS Regions
In the last year alone more AWS regions have been announced and established than ever before in a year. Existing AWS Customers in these countries / regions, now have the option to migrate to a near shore region and this phenomenon is expected to continue, like in Korea, & now in India. In the past customers from these countries, would have hosted in another region like Singapore or Japan and would have to experience...
Amazon offers VPC for creating a secured private network space, to host and run their Servers. In AWS VPC, you can create public & private subnets. Public subnets are used to host the Internet facing servers (mostly web / application servers) that you want inbound internet traffic allowed to and private subnets for backend instances (mostly Database servers) that you do not want to be directly addressable from the Internet. These DB Servers would still need access to internet for their updates and any other Interfacing that may need to be made to the internet. This is...
In this article series we will look at the steps in creating a Whirr base instance which will be used to launch the Hadoop cluster over your custom created instances ”using AWS VPC – BYON(Bring Your Own Network)”, ie., on pre-setup machine instances in AWS VPC. In this article we will focus on how to install whirr in the Whirr Based & how to launch the hadoop cluster As discussed in the Part 1, we should have a whirr base with the whirr tar deflated in the Ubuntu home directory.
Step1: Next step is the log on to get whirr in path.
You can use other ways of adding to path...
For those of us who have been through setting up VPC(Virtual Private Cloud) in AWS know the need to have a NAT instance running. Since we have to keep this instance running as long we need the easy internet access from instances running in Private subnets, had always wondered how else can this instance be utilized. In reality these NAT instance are doing a outward Port Address Translation from internal Private Subnet instances to external Internet.
Typical NAT Server in AWS:
While, there are those who may argue that the NAT instance better be left alone, we believe there...
In this article series we will look at the steps in creating a Whirr base instance which will be used to launch the Hadoop cluster over your custom created instances "using AWS VPC - BYON(Bring Your Own Network)", ie., on pre-setup machine instances in AWS VPC. In this article we will focus on how to create a Whirr base instance.
Key challenge in getting a hadoop cluster through Whirr - BYON over Amazon AWS VPC, is that each instance in the Hadoop clusters should have a hostname which is traceable both by forward and reverse dns lookup in their network. Any AWS VPC instance is...
