Amazon Web Services today announced the availability of dedicated compute instances within a VPC:
Dedicated Instances are Amazon EC2 instances launched within your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) that run hardware dedicated to a single customer. Dedicated Instances let you take full advantage of the benefits of Amazon VPC and the AWS cloud – on-demand elastic provisioning, pay only for what you use, and a private, isolated virtual network, all while ensuring that your Amazon EC2 compute instances will be isolated at the hardware level.
Of course, the humor here is that Amazon didn’t...

In our hectic cloud-based world, devops (the mixing of infrastructure operations with software development) has become the standard way we build and run high-scale sites from IaaS to SaaS. There are lessons to be learned from how we got here, especially because devops isn’t very security friendly.
Here’s how we got to this sorry state, from the perspective of someone who started working on cloud infrastructure in 1998. I’ve run both dev and ops functions in multiple cloud environments and launched two early cloud computing services. I also ran the Web & Internet Engineering program for...

Do you know what cloudbursting is? It is a concept where when you run out of your computing resources in your internal data center, you “burst” the additional workload to an external cloud on an on-demand basis. The internal computing resource is the “Private Cloud” and the external cloud is typically a “public cloud” for which the organization gets charged on a pay-per-use basis. When your deployment has the ability to do “cloudbursting” or spreading the load to the public cloud, you essentially have a Hybrid Cloud.
Hybrid Clouds can deliver a bit...
