A few things I couldn’t wait (waiting being defined as having time to write real blog entries) to share:
- Mitch Garnaat: Monster Muck Mashup – Mass Video Conversion Using AWS – Over the past year or so, Amazon has been expanding it’s line of infrastructural web services. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos likes to call this collection of services muck, meaning these kinds of services are difficult to build in a scalable manner. That’s exactly what this article will focus on: combining three of these scalable services from AWS using an architecture that allows us to build robust, reliable, and scalable compute services.
- Jeff Kim: Net::Amazon::EC2 – Perl interface to the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
- Surj Patel: Racks and Pipes for Pennies – If you have any pointers to good uses of EC2 / S3 / Utility computing or know of any good startups powered by this tech please let others know by posting below.
