WeoCeo Video

by Jeff Barr | on | in Amazon EC2 | | Comments

Weogeoceo There’s a new WeoCEO video available. After watching this video you will be able to understand how the WeoCeo product dynamically starts, monitors, and terminates Amazon EC2 instances in response to actual machine load while maintaining a constant, externally visible domain name.

You’ll need to be familiar with the Unix command line in order to appreciate this video! Follow closely (there’s no audio track) for best results. If you don’t know too much about the command line, rest assured that the cpuburn command doesn’t actually start fires; it simply keeps the processor 100% busy! When the WeoCEO detects that the existing set of EC2 instances is too busy (as measured by the load average) it spawns additional instances (up to a predetermined maximum) to alleviate the load.

In just a few minutes you will see how WeoCEO is able to offer “spike insurance”, automatic load balancing, and stable IP addresses.
