In today's day and age, for a business to stay competitive, it's no longer enough to just design a good-looking and functional product. Consumers worldwide want intelligent products that can create, access and analyze data, and then feed those results back to them in order to optimize the user experience. Simply put, the Internet of Things (IoT) combined with Big Data, is the future of technology that is making our lives more efficient.

On one of my previous blog posts I promised to share with you all the setup guide to install all the various command line tools available from Amzaon. So, in this post I would like to consolidate the setup procedures for the tools that I'm using quite frequently:

  • Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
  • Elastic Load Balancer (ELB)
  • Identify and Access Management (IAM)
  • Auto Scaling

For the last couple of years @cakesolutions have been heavily involved with projects built on the "Typesafe Reactive Platform". And most of our clients have been using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) as the target deployment environment for their applications. We have tried several different approaches in deploying Scala, Akka & Spray based applications to Amazon EC2 with varying degrees of success. In this post I'm going to describe an approach which has worked pretty well to quickly get our clients' reactive applications to cloud.

As a logical next step of moving Specs2 Spring from Maven to SBT, I have now got Specs2 Spring building comfortably in our local Jenkins using the SBT goodness. The process was pretty straight forward!

First, I installed the sbt-plugin for Jenkins from the list of available plugins under Manage Plugin.

For the past few weeks I have been running some experiments on Cloud Foundry. I was hoping to combine my understanding of the internal workings of VMWare's Cloud Application Platform (vcap) with my Haskell code.

This is my first post in many ways;
1. It is certainly the first one of the year 2009 (shame!). By the way "Happy New Year"!
2. I don't remember when was my last blog post (shame again!!).

In the last couple of weeks I have been using PostgreSQL quite a lot. I have used PostgreSQL before but this time it was different as the development as well as the deployment environment were Linux based, as a result I was denied of the use of pgAdminIII, the GUI based administration tool for PostgreSQL database. My only option was to use the command prompt.
