OpenLogic has released pre-built AMIs of your favorite open source stacks on the Amazon AWS Marketplace.
These stacks provide several configurations of the most popular open source software, packaged into native formats, and pre-installed so end users can have their infrastructure up and running at the push of a button. There are currently 50 combinations to choose from, including software such as Apache, NginX, Tomcat, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. Stack variations are provided on both CentOS and Ubuntu, so the most popular and stable operating systems are covered.
I have been a big fan of the Cloud for some time. At OpenLogic, we are constantly looking for ways to streamline and automate our processes, and the cloud model provides key technology for helping with:
OpenLogic's images provide a good baseline for starting cloud-based development, whether you want to isolate your application servers (e.g., Tomcat only) from your database (e.g., MySQL only) for a production-like deployment, or an all-in-one style (e.g., Apache, Tomcat, and MySQL together) for application development.
Additionally, customers can purchase OpenLogic's enterprise-level SLA support at both developer and production levels. This is a great way to streamline development, or cover the risks of unexpected issues while running open source in a cloud environment. Experts can be available to help 24/7.
Give our images a try and let us know what you think.
Eric Weidner is Director of Engineering and Co-Founder of OpenLogic. Trained as a mechanical engineer, Eric began his career as a product design engineer and project manager with a small engineering consulting firm where he pioneered the use of emerging web technologies to improve communications with both clients and team members during the project life cycle. He had so much fun that he left CAD systems behind and jumped fulltime into software development. These days, he grooves on the myriad ways that Open Source projects (and people) can be made to play nicely together. If you're ever skiing in Colorado, Eric may be the guy sliding by, on his back, as he works to integrate himself onto Project Snowboard.
