The Peculiar Case of Email in the Cloud

Most of the time when I start a project, or spin up a virtual server, it's done in my own basement "server farm". Not too many years ago, if I wanted those services to be public, I'd simply port-forward from my static IP into my personal machines. Or, perhaps I'd set up a name-based virtual host as a reverse proxy if I needed to expose a Web app.

AWS EC2 VPC CLI

There's just something about the fresh start you get with a new job. Both my previous job and my new one began with the opportunity to build a new infrastructure from scratch. In both cases, as is common with startup infrastructure in its early stages, everything was to be built using Amazon Web Services (AWS), specifically using its Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2) infrastructure.

Cloud Infrastructure Automation Coming of Age

Explosive growth in enterprise adoption of public and private cloud technologies is really pushing requirements for scalable, automated solutions to ensure security, cost and operational compliance across deployments of virtual “cloud” infrastructure.  With the emergence of ever-larger and more dense server farms, and ever larger and more complex cloud configurations, cloud automa

Chromebookify Your Laptop Now!

A few years ago there was a project designed to boot generic laptops so they functioned as Chromebooks. It was a cool project, but unfortunately, the compatibility wasn't great, and it wasn't reliable to use on a daily basis. Although Chromebooks are old news these days, it still would be quite useful to transform aging laptop computers into Chromebooks.

Secure Server Deployments in Hostile Territory, Part II

In my last article, I started a series on some of the challenges related to spawning secure servers on Amazon EC2.

Non-Linux FOSS: Portable Apps, in the Cloud!

The concept of PortableApps has been around for a long time. It's a great way to take your Windows apps from computer to computer using a USB drive and never worry about being without your favorite program. Honestly, remembering to carry around a USB drive can be a bit of a pain though.

Secure Server Deployments in Hostile Territory

Would you change what you said on the phone, if you knew someone malicious was listening? Whether or not you view the NSA as malicious, I imagine that after reading the NSA coverage on Linux Journal, some of you found yourselves modifying your behavior. The same thing happened to me when I started deploying servers into a public cloud (EC2 in my case).
