Designing Your Cloud Infrastructure Many network architectures include a tiered design with three or more tiers such as core, distribution, and access. Designs are driven by the port bandwidth and quantity required at the edge, in addition to the ability of the distribution and core tiers to provide higher speed uplinks to aggregate traffic. Additional considerations include Ethernet broadcast boundaries and limitations, spanning tree or other loop-avoidance technologies. A dedicated management network is a frequent feature of advanced data center virtualization solutions. Most virtualization vendors recommend that hosts be managed via a dedicated network so that there is no competition with tenant traffic and to provide a degree of separation for security and ease of management purposes. This historically implied dedicating a network adapter per host and port per network device to the management network.

A New Approach to Amazon EC2 Networking You’ve been able to use the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud to construct a secure bridge between your existing IT infrastructure and the AWS cloud using an encrypted VPN connection. All communication between Amazon EC2 instances running within a particular VPC and the outside world (the Internet) was routed across the VPN connection. Today we are releasing a set of features that expand the power and value of the Virtual Private Cloud. You can think of this new collection of features as virtual networking for Amazon EC2. While I would hate to be innocently accused of hyperbole, I do think that today’s release legitimately qualifies as massive, one that may very well change the way that you think about EC2 and how it can be put to use in your environment.

Five content filters suitable for both home and business Jack Wallen identifies five content access management and filtering apps. I am not one to advocate a Big Brother-esque environment for business as that does little for morale or instilling a two-way sense of trust. But there are companies out there that must lock down machines, for whatever reason, and need the tools to do so.

I’m talking about code that does things like this: Attach an EBS volumeDownload your application from a non-public location in S3Send and receive SQS messagesQuery or update SimpleDB All these actions require your credentials.

AWS Management Console With Resource Groups, you can view collections of resources that share common tags. Streamline your use of the console by creating a resource group for each application, service, or collection of related resources that you work with regularly. Quickly navigate to each saved resource group using the “AWS” menu. Resource Groups are specific to each identity, so each user in an account can create unique Resource Groups for frequently accessed resources and common tasks. Users can also use a URL to share Resource Group definitions with others in the same account.
