Linux Cloud Tutorials
Migrate your Linux application to the Amazon cloud
Cloud computing and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) are well documented, but what's often not discussed is how to get a running application into a cloud computing environment. Discover how to move an application into the cloud and take advantages of the features this setup has to offer.
Cloud computing with Linux and Apache Hadoop
This article shows you how to use Apache Hadoop to build a MapReduce framework to make a Hadoop Cluster and how to create a sample MapReduce application which runs on Hadoop. You will also learn how to set up a time/disk-consuming task on the cloud.
Avoiding Cloud computting DoS attacks
Look in detail at how the HybridCloud application authenticates itself to cloud services, how Google Apps uses OAuth and how Force.com cloud services require built-in testing to avoid inadvertent Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks.
IBM Delivers Web apps from the Amazon EC2 cloud
This article looks specifically at the public cloud and how you can use the IBM WebSphere sMash and IBM DB2 Express-C Amazon Machine Images (AMI) at no charge to deliver Web applications hosted on the EC2 public cloud infrastructure. Learn how a business can leverage Cloud Computing to reduces costs associated with owning software.
Cloud computing with Linux thin clients
For embedded Linux engineers and aficionados, one exciting aspect of cloud computing is the sudden interest in thin Linux clients. Explore cloud computing from a Linux perspective and discover some of the most innovative and popular Linux-based solutionsówith a particular view toward Linux thin clients and environmentally beneficial options.
Navigate the Google, Amazon, and Microsoft cloud computing labyrinth
If you're lucky enough to have a basic understanding of cloud computing, your skills are in demand. But when it comes to actually building an application, what platform do you use? Google App Engine and Amazon EC2 are both huge names, so it's not about popularity. And what if you're a Microsoft personand Windows Azure? Learn how to navigate the cloud wisely and pick the perfect platform for your particular application requirements.
The cloud computing advantage on AIX and System p
This article discussed how the concepts around cloud computing naturally lend themselves to AIX and Power Systems. Some of the drivers include: virtualization (PowerVM), RAS, availability offerings, as well as new feature/functionality of both AIX and POWER servers. Cloud computing appears to have a bright future ahead of it, and POWER servers driven by AIX (and Linux) stand to be a big part of that future.
Ganglia and Nagios Cluster monitoring Part 2
The scope of Ganglia and Nagios is enormous. What we have touched on here though is relevant to a cluster, grid, or cloud infrastructure. In Part 2, learn how to install and configure Nagios to watch hosts and services, alerting users when things go wrong. The article also shows you how to unite Nagios with Ganglia (from Part 1) and add two other features to Nagios for standard clusters, grids, and clouds to help with monitoring network switches and the resource manager.
Cloud computing with the Android Linux software stack
The open source Android operating system has allows for sophisticated Cloud Computing applications to run wherever you are. Designed to be highly efficient on battery-powered devices like the T-Mobile G1 smartphone, at heart, Android is Linux. Learn more about the several layers to the Android programming model that permit the creation of secure applications that are tailor-made for cloud computing.
Amazon cloud computing SimpleDB boto processing
Amazon SimpleDB (SDB) is a fast, scalable real-time dataset indexing and querying framework that makes it easy to store and retrieve structured data for Amazon Web Services-based applications in the cloud. In this article, learn some of the basic concepts of Amazon Cloud computing and check out some of the functions provided by the third-party open source Python library named boto. You will get familiar with Amazon Cloud computing and SDB by running small snippets of boto code in a Python shell.
Linux can rule cloud computing
You can't read a technical Web site these days without some mention of so-called cloud computing. Cloud computing gives users access to massive computing and storage resources without their having to know where those resources are or how they're configured. This article discusses the anatomy of cloud computing and how Linux and the open source community contribute to the world of cloud computing. As you might have guessed, Linux and open source technologies play a huge role.
